Not sure what the other reviewer is talking about, but this collection is complete.

Where's "The War Prayer"? "Letters from the Earth"? "The United States of Lyncherdom"? "The Lowest Animal"? This is The Complete, Warm-and-Fuzzy, Feel-Good, Safely Innocuous Works of Mark Twain (where we all left off in elementary school). All of his edgy, controversial stuff -- i.e., his best work -- is conspicuously absent. This deserves at least three stars because what's here is good AS FAR AS IT GOES, but I have to penalize it by at least one star on principle. I'd like to think Mr. Clemens would agree.

The book is wonderful Twain at his best. The nook version is not so wonderful. On my nook version 2 there is no way to control font size and it seems to be set as large as it will go.

i found the table of contents intuitive and very easy to navigate. i haven't opened up every single story to make sure it's there yet, but the several that i did click through to opened fine and the formatting was great. i'm super stoked to have all of these amazing stories -- twain is a genius. TIP: if you find yourself on a blank page, just keeping clicking through with the forward button until the page appears.

Fabulous buy. Enough Twain to keep you busy for a year. Includes his classics and many of his short essays highlighting his unmatched humor. The negative comments about navigating this book are bogus. Simply use the Nook table of contents rather than the table at the front of the book.

This is really a bargain. I've been reading all kinds Mark Twain stories and love 'em. Before, I had to hold my 3-inch anthology with great difficulty. Now, only the Nook. Who could ask for anything more?

I have always been fascinated by the incredible mind and thought process that Mr. Clemens brings to his craft. His political analysis of the character of man in the 1860's forward resonates loudly today. This collection of all the works of Mark Twain is a treausre, it allows the reader to take a lifetime journey with a man who saw the greatness and foibles of humankind. This book may be the best 5,400 plus 99 cent purchase you'll ever make.
