3.0 out of 5 stars Great bargain, but has some typos Jan. 20 2014
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
I've found a few typos, and some minor discrepancies between this version and others (though that could just be the edition?), but those are few and far between. For the most part, this is a great deal, and infinitely preferable to spending $100 on a print anthology.

4.0 out of 5 stars Complete works of shakespeare Oct. 3 2013
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
I bought this as I needed to read Antony & Cleopatra and it was cheaper to buy the complete works rather than just that 1 play. This book has been really useful and has served its purpose. I'm not a huge fan of the way it is laid out, it could be put together a little more nicely. But it does the job.

5.0 out of 5 stars well-linked Oct. 31 2011
By D. Cor - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
It took some digging to come up with a Kindle version of Shakespeare's Complete Works that's well-linked and has modernized spelling, but I eventually settled on this version. There's a general Table of Contents at the beginning listing every play and poem, and then each play has its own ToC, making it convenient to jump scenes. Of course, there are many free versions of Shakespeare's works online, but none I've seen have complete ToC's.

The formatting is clean, and, as far as I've read, there are few typos. Well worth a few bucks to be able to find your way around in what would be several hundred pages of printed matter. Someone looking for commentary and notes should look elsewhere, though; this is just a neat presentation of the works themselves.

5.0 out of 5 stars Best kindle shakespeare collection out of them all. Aug. 9 2012
By ty - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
I wish I could give this book more then 5 stars. I purchased this book about 8 months ago completely satisfied with the product, however I have noticed that not many people were satisfied with this product, but none of them gave good reasons why, I will explain to you what the formatting and organizational tools of this book looks like, so you can decide whether it's what you want or not.

The way all of this content is organized is one of the reasons I love this book. It has all of the plays organized in the table of contents by each of the subjects (comedies, tradgedys, and histories) with links you can click on. When you click on one of the links of one of the plays, for example: If you click on Romeo and Juliet, you become redirected to another table of contents that organize the all the scenes in all the different kind of acts.

Now the formatting is the best you can get for being displayed on the kindle. It shows the name of the person speaking and then under the name, and indented is what they say. This kind of formatting is my favorite kind of formatting I've seen so far. It makes reading a play so much easier.

But what I really like is that I have all of shakespeares sonnets and plays, all on one small electric device, Instead of having it in one massive textbook.

In all honesty, I wouldn't mind paying $10-20 on a collection this organized.
Overall I think this is my favorite purchase so far.

Please let me know if this review helped you :)

5.0 out of 5 stars Excellent and inexpensive complete Shakespeare June 17 2012
By MsEnglishTeacher - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
I am a high school English teacher looking at the different versions of classics texts available for Kindle (fire), so my review will not be for the play itself, but rather for the eBook--readability, layout, price, and other features.

This is an excellent complete Shakespeare, and at $1.99, a steal. It includes all of Shakespeare's plays and poetry. There are links to each play, and from the first page of each play, links to each act and scene. When you go to the poetry section, there are links to each poem. The layout on the page is very clean. The lines are properly laid out in poetic form and there are spaces between each speaker. Unfortunately, there are no line numbers. There is no annotation in this version, but hey, it was two dollars!

If you are looking for low price and readability, this is easily the best complete Shakespeare!

2.0 out of 5 stars Formatting and editing could be better July 6 2012
By EmmLLore - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
I know I only paid $1.99 for this, but I was hoping for something without errors. I opened it up straight to Much Ado About Nothing, one of my favourite plays, and noticed immediately that the line breaks were all wrong. Also, in the first two pages there were two spelling errors. I gave up when Don Pedro was misspelled Don Peter. I can't read it like this. Hoping to find a version that has been properly proofread.

As an older person with advanced macular degeneration I am now able to enjoy renewing my love of the wonderful works of Shakespeare without all the stress of trying to read small print. It has been a joy. Life for older persons is a battle every day, especially when trying to read. This is just one of the wonders of an iPad and every day I find something new to make my life fuler and more worthwhile. Please find more books that we oldies can enjoy to extend our horizons!
