This version includes all the plays and all the poems. It is really a fantastic deal. Now here is where this book is different from the other Shakespeare collections: it is MUCH EASIER to read because the character names are offset from the dialogue.. The Navigation is also perfect, with a main TOC linking you to every play, and every play has its own TOC linking you to the specific ACTS and SCENES. If you're a fan of Shakespeare or even just a fan of books in general, this is a no brainer.

I don't know how many times I've read each of these. I can't even choose one favorite, but am so glad to have all of them at my finger tips whenever I want.

This has the 37 of 38 plays of shakespeare including sonnets and the two epic poems the format is great and the words are actually the original.

Good, not great. The formatting is attractive and wonderfully readable, but the standard character list, normally included at the start of each play, is missing. The reader must instead discover each character as he enters the dialogue. Additionally, there are a few typos scattered throughout the text, seemingly the result of scanning the text into digital format without proofreading it. It is definitely the most attractive, readable text available for Nook, but the missing character lists and the typos should give the buyer pause.

I will say nothing about the works themselves, as the name "Shakespeare" speaks for itself. What I liked about this particular version was the formatting for the plays for Nook. I cannot say if it is the best or not. However, I took a few minutes to look at several of the many versions available and liked this the best of these. The presentation of the sonnets is simple and servicable -- but I am not sure that they need other formatting. The book's indices allow jumping to the desired poem or play, and then to the desired scene within the plays. The only 'caution' I would add is that for those who like their introductory essays on the long side, the introduction here is rather short.

The first passage I read after buying this PoS was the gravediggers' dialogue in Act V, Scene 1 of Hamlet. The very last passage, last two sentences, before the Second Clown departs offstage are completely garbled, with the First Clown instructing him to "go to Yaughan". This is obviously an unproofed scan of text, though the sellers tout it as a lovely new edition. It is not. It is a careless, sloppy, cynical disgrace. It is improbable that I read a uniquely erroneous passage right off. This edition can not be trusted. Its only $1.99, but I want my money back, and to delete this from my Nook. This is Shakespeare, for Bawds' Sake, not some cheesy, self-published romance novel.
