    Cover not reflective of book - Truely a thesaurus

    My son asked for a dictionary and we added the book above. The cover reads " Webster Dictionary" which is different from the title "New American Rogets Thesaurus in Dictionary Form". This is truely a thesaurus and not a dictionary.

    Not at all what I thought

    I think this book started out strong but I lost interest as I went. It got to be somewhat repetative and wordy. Otherwise it was a pretty good read. I think the plot needs a little work

    Positive

    I would first echo the very creatively written review above!

    I've not used a thesaurus in years, but found the revised and expanded features of this version piqued my curiosity enough to peruse other entries after finding those I needed.

    If there is a way

    If there is a way to look up a word without going thru the whole alphabet word by word, then I wish there were some directions given with this download. Would really like my money back.

    Problem with Nook version

    Appears to be a good thesaurus however the Nook version omits the first letter of each word. I'll be deleting it from my Nook.

    Terrific way to expand vocabulary!!

    I used this dynamic book in college and still do. I enjoy reading
    British novels and have found that their extensive language use is better understood if you have a companion to read with.
