3.0 out of 5 stars OK, but don't get for college courses Aug. 26 2010
By R. G. Robb - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
As mentioned, this IS NOT a complete collection. While there are very many important works in here, it doesn't have everything. If you are taking a college class, you might want to spend the extra few bucks for true complete editions.

Also, the essay titled "Nature" in this edition is NOT the essay from "Nature; Addresses and Lectures."

That said, I don't necessarily feel like the $1.99 was a waste, but I do feel like I was a little hoodwinked by the title. This is not the first purported "Complete" works collection I've bought for my Kindle that turned out to be incomplete.

1.0 out of 5 stars VERY Misleadingly Titled Dec 17 2010
By William Cronon - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Kindle Edition
This Kindle title keeps coming up when I do Amazon searches, and I keep being tempted to purchase it because I would love to have on my Kindle what it purports to contain but does not. I wish Amazon would take more responsibility in policing misleading products like this one. Whatever the merits of this ebook, would-be customers should understand that it is deeply mistitled. Emerson and Thoreau produced large, deep bodies of writing, and this ebook does not REMOTELY include anything like the "Complete Works" of either author. Caveat emptor!!

1.0 out of 5 stars Not complete! Nov. 24 2010
By Syd - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback
Amazon.com owns CreateSpace, the "publisher" of this book. Shame on Amazon, then, for lying to its customers by claiming that this volume contains the complete works of Thoreau and Emerson. This is merely a selection, and many works by both philosophers are missing.

5.0 out of 5 stars Great content / Decent Kindle File Sept. 7 2009
By J. Orcutt - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Kindle Edition
I am mostly trying to rate the content of the kindle file with this review. The content is obviously fantastic on a literary level. The kindle file is basic but complete with working table of contents. This is worth every penny and then some.

1.0 out of 5 stars Complete? Hardly. Oct. 5 2012
By JenGets - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback
First, I must admit I have not even opened this book--but I already know it's not the "Complete Works" of either Emerson or Thoreau, certainly not with only 814 pages. When I was a kid in Concord I'd walk into the local library and behind the statue of Emerson by Daniel Chester French, there were shelves upon shelves of original works by these two authors alone. Literally hundreds of hardbound books full of their words, all different. Never in anyone's imagination would these works fit into one tome or even e-book. Why even sell a book with a such a blatant lie in the title? Shame on you! It's insulting to the authors to imply that their oeuvre might be that puny, and insulting to readers and scholars everywhere.
