    :(

    Also having trouble opening the book and getting to the work I want to read. 4 out of 5 times it will not open. Bummer because I love Shakespeare and want to read it on my nook.

    Freezes up my Nook

    This book may be as wonderful as it should be, but it freezes up my Nook and you can't search for content in any organized way. They need to get the bugs out of this one.

    No stars, but not an option

    This took forever to open, both on NOOK and iPAD, then you could not use the links on the first few pages to go to a specific play. When trying to use "go to" or "contents," only half of the contents were listed, ande you could not even use that to go to the specific play. Stay away from "complete collections!"

    Crashed My Nook :(

    Don't download to the nook!!!!

    I have downloaded this work twice to my nookcolor and both times resulted in complete dissapointment. I got ripped off even if it only costs $0.99. i had to delete the book from my nookcolor in order for me to use my nookcolor again. it made it my nookcolor incapable of displaying any graffics for book covers and i could not view content of any of my books. it wasn't till i removed it completely from my nookcolor that the problem was fixed. i'm really dissapointed.

    I want my money!!

    This is public domain, and yet I paid.... I thought that paying would ensure a better product; however, by Nook (built for this) cannot open the file. Also, it is divided into so many chapters it takes longer to find the play or poem that it would to read his entire works!!

    DO NOT PAY FOR THIS!! Save your cash and just get the public domain FREE versions.

    I have been robbed by a bookstore.

    Too big for the Nook?

    Opening the book on the Nook appears to lock up the reader and you will not be able to open other books even if you go back to the home screen and try from there...you must turn the Nook off and back on again to reset it. This book will eventually open in NookStudy (Mac), but it takes a long time to turn pages and navigate, to the point that I'm unsure it's really usable.

    As everyone says

    This does not work, and interferes with everything else. Do not purchase, and if you have purchased, complain so BN feels pressured to do something.

    A truly Complete Works for less than a dollar!

    It's Shakespeare's Complete Works and it's only 99 cents! The Sonnets are in a different, lighter font than the rest of the works but hey! it's only 99 cents! I'm glad to have the complete works in one file, since I've already got each play and sonnet in My Documents folder, now I can remove them from my nook and open only one document to read the Bard. It's better than wading through all the other allegedly "Complete" editions out there and it's a better value than some that cost more. My personal favorite is the Pelican Shakespeare series but I'm waiting for the complete works edition. Until then, I'm set!

    Old Bill is lucky he isn't alive to witness this!

    If I could give this a negative rating, I would. As I've read other reviews, I realize I'm not the only one that got the shaft by buying this! The part that ticks me off the most is that after realizing it was a piece and wouldn't open, I ordered another eBook with a different cover and got screwed that time too! DO NOT WASTE YOUR TIME WITH THIS!

    couldn't download

    Got my nook for christmas and even got an update in the two weeks since then and I still can't open this book. Really disappointed. I think if the book is too large, which I have the hardback at home and it's huge--then they should split the e book up into two or three ebooks so you could at least be able to read it.

    Great if you are patient.

    (. . . and not an idiot).
    Yes I had problems at first, but an update to the latest Nook Firmware took care of them instantly. Yes the book is going to be slow. . . it is far bigger than most other NookBooks. I imagine there is some unzipping to do since it is not much bigger KB wise. I for one don't mind waiting because its $0.99 for everything Shakespeare. If you want something fast, go buy each book individually. Or just be patient. It is well worth it in my opinion.
