And it was worth it. I tested it on a page of one of my French (fictional) books. It found all of the words, even complex conjugated forms of "etre". It gave me the correct infinitive and told me what form it was, and then gave me the translation. This is the first useful French dictionaly I have found out there, and it is going to make learning French through reading French books much more enjoyable for me!
Really great! I recommend this dictionary as the default dictionary for every person interested in reading French books on their kindle!
The other problem is that reviews are combined for both editions (16 reviews at the time I'm writing) - but they are not the same book! Reviewers talk about how this book helps them read French novels - but this is only true for the French-English version!
If you want to read books in French and quickly look up the English definition, buy the French-English edition.
In looking through my existing vocabulary list, I quickly found words in the M-W dictionary that this Collins dictionary does not have. I also discovered that the definitions don't include the reflexive version of verbs (the "se" version)!
Se charger de - no 'se' version in Collins
S'averer - not found in Collins at all!
s'evanouir - not found in Collins at all!
These are certainly not unusual or obscure words (get the M-W dict and look them up! :) ). Having fewer words was disappointing, but not calling out the reflexive definitions was a deal breaker. While I could probably figure it out from the provided definition, it would be far less straightforward. And in general, the M-W definitions are more to-the-point.
Back to the M-W…
