5.0 out of 5 stars Bedford Park Books version (14 book collection) September 7, 2010
By Melynda
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
This is another glowing review for the Bedford Parks Books version of the Complete Wizard of Oz collection. I am dismayed to read the bad reviews, of which most actually belong to a completely different collection of 15 Oz books.

I have a Kindle 2, and the Bedford Park Books set is formatted for the Kindle. I have had no problems with it. The table of contents is fully functional, with easy access to each chapter of each of the 14 books.

As one recent reviewer noted, this collection does not include The Woggle-Bug Book. However, that book is technically not an Oz series book, even if it does feature an Oz character visiting our world. Also, it clearly states on the cover of this collection that this is a 14 book set of the Oz series by L. Frank Baum.

I grew up with these stories, and I love them. I like that these wonder tales, unlike older fairy tales (Grimm, Perrault, Anderson), involve characters from late 19th/early 20th Century America that are transported to Oz.

Some other reviewer complained that you can find all of these books available as individual books for free. That is true. Nevertheless, I totally do not regret paying $0.95 for the convenience of getting all 14 beloved books together in one volume AND formatted for Kindle with an active Table of Contents. For me, that is well worth it.

I also have the Bedford Parks Books versions of the Complete Sherlock Holmes and the Complete Jane Austen for the Kindle. I have no complaints with those either. I would definitely buy more collections put together by them.

5.0 out of 5 stars Rating Format; not book content December 28, 2010
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
I was in the processing of downloading each of the free Kindle versions of the Oz books when I came across this version. This version is currently .95, and for someone who is unfamiliar with the Oz books and what order to read them in this price is worth paying. I went to the internet to figure out what order the books were in, but knew that I would never remember the order while I was reading and would have to look it up each time. This Kindle version has all the books laid out in their proper order, with a nice table of contents. The ToC doesn't just list each book, it is actually laid out by chapter. So, for instance, you can jump ahead to chapter 14 of The Wonderful Wizard of Oz - "The Winged Monkeys."

If you're worried about getting a properly formatted version, just be sure to download the newest version. Next to the book image and title, there is a "Formats" section with a + Drop-Down box. I chose Kindle Version June 21, 2010 and it is properly formatted. I am very much looking forward to reading this.

3.0 out of 5 stars It's all there July 14, 2008
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
The good news is all the books are there, and it's only 99 cents!

The bad news is that it is not formatted for the kindle at all. There are "<CR><LF>"s at the end of every line and none of the different type sizes kindle offers will make the lines come out evenly on the page. There are 15 books, but no hyperlinked table of contents, so if you want to read "Ozma of Oz", just guess what location number to go to because it's just one long document.

I cannot imagine that it would have been hard to solve the line breaks issue before publishing this as a kindle book.

5.0 out of 5 stars A whole lot of magic for less than a dollar September 13, 2011
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
How anyone could possibly complain about getting the original "The Wonderful Wizard of Oz" and the succeding 13 sequels with one click for 95 cents is beyond me. My 10 year old read a paperback copy of The Wonderful Wizard of Oz" as part of an over-the-summer reading assignment prior to entering the 5th grade. He enjoyed it very much, as I did a long time ago> When I told him that there were 2 or 3 sequels, he was surprised ("Why didn't they make them into movies too, Dad?") and asked for them. When I looked them up on Amazon *I* was surprised to find out that there were 13 of them and that I could get them all for my Kindle for $0.95. Click and I had them, and Jacob has read the first 3 or 4, and now I have to fight him for my Kindle. A better buy you will never make.

Highly Recommended

3.0 out of 5 stars Great books, bad formatting March 22, 2009
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
As stated in another review. The books are all there, but the formatting is horrible. I thought I'd pay to not have to convert them myself, but I could have done just as well with 10 minutes, mobicreater and Project Gutenberg. I'd wait to buy this until the formatting is fixed.

1.0 out of 5 stars Formatting and Illustrations Still messed up February 7, 2013
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
Okay. I bit the bullet and tried the FULL version of this book after my scathing review of the sample. I returned the FULL version for a refund and deleted the sample.

Other than ONE pencil sketch at the very beginning of a VERY few books, there just aren't any illustrations. And it seems even the Cover Art is now missing (the sample at least had that one piece of cover art).

So I still stand by my review below, but it now includes all problems listed to the FULL version, except the formatting seems to be improved.

After reading all the bad reviews, I decided to try the SAMPLE. This review is JUST on the SAMPLE. I have a Kindle Touch, your Kindle experience may vary. As of 7 February 2013, the formatting is still missing and none of the illustrations are there. I agree with earlier reviews that where the illustrations are supposed to be, the book just says "IMAGE". There is cover art and one small illustration before the beginning of the book. Other than that, not a thing.

As for the formatting, the book is a hodge-podge of double, triple, and quadruple line breaks. Sentences start with page numbers. And paragraphs have jagged line breaks in them.

There's a supposedly better version "The Complete Wizard of Oz Collection (With Active Table of Contents)" which also does NOT have illustrations (but doesn't claim to) for the same price (99 cents).

And the Delphi $3 version's one review states it also has no pictures.

What the heck guys?!? Either they have illustrations or they don't! Get the picture? We don't.

Personally, I'm holding off purchasing and writing complaints until Amazon gets this mess fixed.

I realize it's only $1, but the the sample sent was fairly unreadable.
