I understand the need for recycling paper but with this dictionary they have gone too far ! The pages are almost yellow and rough and it is really concise, with many common words missing. If you need to consult a dictionary often , just spend a bit more and buy something else !

Great dictionary for the price and it also contains a very useful thesaurus. The only minor issue with it is that it is printed only in black and white whereas colour would no doubt give a more professional finish and aesthetic look.

Delivered/packaged well but am disappointed that the Thesaurus part is not as good as it could be-rather less info. but it must be my fault for not checking the inside before I bought. Guess I thought it would be more comprehensive but still good value.

This item has an excellent value for the price. Having a dictionary and thesaurus in such a convenient way helps a lot. I would definitely recommend it!

Before we continue, I'd liek to say this dictionary didn't come to me "In Colour"
Aside from that, the dictionary/thesaurus is perfect. Another plus is that it's currently on a discounted price which you won't get in bookstores.

I am currently reading once more the series of twenty novels by Patrick O'Brian, the Aubrey/Maturin tales. Although I use the special help provided by the wonderful "Sea of Words" lexicon by Dean King to navigate through the vast amount of seafaring terms of the era of wooden vessels in the early 19th century, I need more help with the enormous range of O'Brian's English vocabulary. Having in vain searched for help in several dictionaries I hoped that the Collins would get me much further. But although very practical with its Thesaurus for every day's use it is obviously not a good choice (just as all the ones I tried before, mostly of American origin) for English literature.
But as I got it at no great expense and I like the Thesaurus it now stands quite thick side by side with the others making the collection looking quite impressive.
