3.0 out of 5 stars A mixed bag, 14 July 2012
This review is from: Delphi Complete Works of Henry James (Illustrated) (Kindle Edition)
I bought this mainly for the short stories and some of the rarer novels. My main quibble is with the formatting. "Watch and Ward" and "Confidence" were fine, "The Reverberator" suffered from the block-capitals-instead-of-italics problem noticed with other Delphi editions, which gives the unJamesian impression the characters are shouting at each other, and "The Other House" was such a mess as to be unreadable. So far I've only scratched the surface of this enormous collection, but the rule seems to be that the more obscure texts are the ones most likely to contain errors. You get a lot for your money, but the standard of presentation is inconsistent.
