Excellent book, but unusable Kindle adaptation!,
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Shakespeare's Words: A Glossary and Language Companion (Kindle Edition)
Other reviewers have aptly described the excellent quality of this book, but I just wanted to add a proviso: unless I am missing something, the Kindle adaptation is virtually unusable. The text has been copied wholesale as if it were a novel; unlike other Kindle dictionaries I have used, there is no way to look up entries. You have to use the generic Kindle search function, which brings up every instance of the word in question in the book, with no way of distinguishing the actual entry from the sometimes numerous other cases in which the same word appears as part of a quote listed under another entry. Unless the word is very rare, this results in an agonising and time-consuming process every time you try to look something up. Please buy the hard copy until Amazon sorts out the Kindle version!
