Actually, the book did not come into my Kindle properly. It was all scrambled, so I deleted it.

HASH(0xa5216bdc) out of 5 stars Incomplete Feb. 6 2011
By Consumer - Published on
Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase
I was excited to find this so cheap. Now I know why. While the title calls this the Super 2011 Edition, it is just a skeleton of the print version. For example, there are only 15 or so words under the letter G. I hope my copy grows if the ebook is updated,

HASH(0xa4f0cac8) out of 5 stars Wheres the rest???? June 12 2011
By Chapter One - Published on
Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase
I can only assume the 5 people who rated this 5 stars are friends of the publisher or something, as this is a total waste of even 99c. Where's the rest of the words??? The lists are ludicrously short and the chances of there being a word you need are slim.

HASH(0xa5c63408) out of 5 stars There is no word search behavior for this Thesaurus April 23 2011
By Erin A. Thomas - Published on
Format: Kindle Edition
Try to imagine paging through endless pages for 15 to 45 minutes just to eventually, maybe, land on the word you want to look up. Or searching the book for a given word, say "trust", and trying to find the appropriate heading--can't be done. You're shown several pages of "locations" with a small snippet from the book including the word itself, none of which provide you with enough information to know if the "location" bears the related words you're looking for. That's what you're in for with this thesaurus. You're better off getting the printed version, which is beautifully organized.

HASH(0xa4f88edc) out of 5 stars Read the reviews carefully Dec 9 2011
By buggles - Published on
Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase
This edition is woefully unsearchable. Typing in a word produces a laundry list of every occurrence of the word in the eBook. You don't know which entry to select because the primary entry, the entry you're really looking for, looks just like all of the other entries. Besides, the content is limited. Save your money. This eBook is an utter failure.

HASH(0xa506ca2c) out of 5 stars There are 2 kinds of Thesaurus, this is "the other kind" May 31 2013
By B. Marold - Published on
Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase
To answer one reviewer's comment right off the bat, the edition of this Thesaurus I bought did have a search function which served me quite well, since search functions are essential in reference works of this size.

To some other reviewers who said there seemed to be a whole lot missing, they are probably thinking of a Thesaurus in dictionary form. This is NOT in the form of a dictionary, it is laid out by "idea", in a hierarchical fashion, as Peter Mark Roget originally did almost 2 centuries ago. For that reason, those short lists of words at the beginning are misleading in giving the impression that there is a lot less than there is. On the "g's" for example, I queried "grace" and "good" and found lots of synonyms, and even its own major category "618. Good".

I gave it only four stars because it did not have the kind of alphabetical index in my hard copy of Roget, and because its last entry is 984 Heterodoxy, while in my "latest edition", the last entry is 1075 Space Travel. I suspect this is copied from a Roget edition from about 50 years ago. I don't mind the absence of the index so much because of the search function, which replaces it.
