5.0 out of 5 stars Useful reference for classic literature lovers Feb. 28 2012
By Berklee Boy - Published on

Penguin Classics Series for Kindle are often quite reasonably priced and generally have the best links to useful notes provided for historical novels and/or foreign translations. It is a real drag, however, to try to separate the gold from the dross by doing a normal search on Amazon.

This catalog - which is FREE - gives page numbers, editors names, and paper book prices and offers several different ways to find exactly what you may be looking for.

How can you go wrong for this price??

1.0 out of 5 stars Crippled by Lack of Imagination Feb. 21 2012

I was looking forward to this eBook listing of all the Penguin Classics titles currently available. I have been a lover of Penguin books - the Classics series in particular - for most of my 50 years. What a disappointment this book is, though!

Reading the publishers' note, I was encouraged to see them touting the availability of their backlist in eBook form. So when I got to the actual listings, I was taken aback by what I found. There are no active links in this eBook that I can find. Surely this would have been a great sales / marketing tool for Penguin. The very first entry, Flatland by Edward A. Abbott, seemed interesting. But could I tap anywhere to buy it? No. And now I probably will forget about it in the glut of other, far more readily available items I can get to in no time at all. Penguim Classics editos: you have missed a golden opportunity to increase your sales exponentially!

If you want a convenient listing of all the currently available books from this publisher, go ahead and download this item. Otherwise, don't bother and simply go to the Penguin Classics website or search for "penguin classics" in the Kindle Store. *However, there are only a little over 100 titles listed - if you own a Kindle, you're mainly out of luck as this publisher seems to prefer producing eBooks in ePub format. Again, a very poor choice on their part, and it makes you wonder why they bothered putting this list out there in the first place...

All in all, a classic example of how an old media company just doesn't "get" e-publishing at all. Very sad.

*My thanks to Andromeda for pointing out a serious error in the original review. Let's hope you're right, Andromeda, and these are all just teething pains. But it does still illustrate how far behind traditional publishers are in the digital publishing game.

1.0 out of 5 stars Extremely Disappointed March 29 2013
By Holley Jacobs - Published on

When I received this on my Kindle; I was excited to find an annotated listing to lead me to future wonderful readings. I expected too much I guess. The book is separated nicely, I guess but that is not a difficult task. I had to write an annotated bibliography for a college class regarding a Small Business Plan which was more in-dept than all 14,688 pages of this book. Each author is listed at the top of the page with birth and death year. Beneath this is a list of books from the author. This is an easy description:

There you go...the beginning of the book is more detailed and longer than the contents for which I got it. Penguin Classics goes on and on about their 65 year history and wonderful things they have accomplished. Of course, they then invite you to the website and many social media outlets. Seriously, I was looking for a reference guide to prized authors to further my quest for that time period's reading. I did not nor do I care about Penguin Classic's history. I would not even give this book one star but I had to in order to write this review.

Please, don't waste your time or space on your kindle.
