on 23 May 2015
My 83 year old mother asked me to write this review as this is the 4th Oxford Dictionary of English that I have purchased on her behalf via Amazon since August 2011.
Mum carefully uses the dictionary daily to assist her in completing, or attempting to complete, the times crossword. The content of the dictionary is, of course, perfect for the task but the hardback covers are sadly not up to the job separating from the spline after an average of only slightly over a year!
This seems a woefully short life for a £26 book.
