5.0 out of 5 stars The original and still the best Aug. 23 2001
Format:Paperback
Roget was born in England of French parentage and made the development of an English Language Thesaurus his life's work. He gained little recognition in his own lifetime but the results of his endeavours have been diligently embellished and supplemented by generations of academics so that now, when we need another word for the one in our mind, when we are seeking a word but it won't come to mind, when we want to put together that "catch phrase" that will bring our customers running to our door, we reach instinctively for Roget's Thesaurus. They're even a standard part of the kit for most Word Processing programs.
Organized both by subject matter and alphabetically, my Thesaurus is a pleasure to dive into. If I have one problem with it, it's that, having found the word I want, I keep reaing for the pure joy of the language. It's my firm belief that Roget has help keep the English language a rich, multi-cultural language that is understood worldwide.

1.0 out of 5 stars Not Good For Kindle Jan. 14 2010
By Amazon Customer - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
Revision: The edition I bought was 0.99 and the image is a yellow cover. This review is also appearing for other versions, which I cannot speak to.

Roget's Thesaurus is GREAT book to have, naturally, I wanted a copy for my Kindle. This version is NOT searchable. 100% useless on Kindle. The only way to find a word is to turn pages. It is also not formatted for Kindle. If it were free, I'd want my money back. DO NOT BUY THIS.

1.0 out of 5 stars Useless on a Kindle - not searchable. March 4 2010
By Susan C. Gregory - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Kindle Edition
Another reviewer wrote that this worked well with Kindle's seach feature. But when I tried to search for a word it told me that this book is not set up for searching. Maybe one of the other editions is. I'm glad I only paid 99 cents.

1.0 out of 5 stars Useless March 29 2011
By A - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
I was glad to see that there is a free thesaurus for Kindle. But after I downloaded it, I realized why it's free. It's a bunch of jumbled up words and is horribly formatted, and there's no way to search for anything. It's useless.
