Though this ebook is huge (over 48 MB), Delphi has organized the collection well to make navigation among the many works simple. I was especially pleased to see that Delphi provides separate hyperlinked tables of contents for the Barsetshire series and the Palliser series. Within each series, the novels are listed in chronological order in the table of contents. As usual, Delphi includes a generous helping of images throughout that provide interesting insights and information about Trollope's life and works. This ebook is a real treasure for Trollope fans. Just be very patient with it when you download it because it took a long time (easily an hour or more) for my Kindle 3 (aka "Kindle Keyboard") to index it, due to its size.
Though the formatting of the works is very pleasing to the eye, I haven't had an opportunity to read enough of this collection yet to vouch for the accuracy of the text. The wonderful thing, though, is that if customers point out any deficiencies (typos, missing text, or even missing works), Delphi is very responsive, in my experience, and will likely correct the issues in an updated edition, which is provided at no additional cost to anyone who had previously purchased the applicable title. I hope Delphi is around for a long, long time to continue making these marvelous public-domain classics collections available to Kindle readers. Highly recommended.
I can think of only one negative for downloading a collection rather than an individual book. One does not know where one is in the book being read. The location indicator at the bottom of the screen might show 10% but it relates to the whole collection and one could be almost at the end of the book being read. It is also important to set frequent book marks since it is impossible to find the exact location in the large collection if one navigates away for some reason (like pressing the wrong button).
Trollope cannot be improved upon, and the same goes for this set. The works are well-formatted and easily accessible--and virtually every title is here. Trollope lovers will love this set. (Don't be tempted by less expensive sets which seem to offer a lot of Trollope. I purchased one only to discover that more than a third of the books in it did not distinguish paragraphs by indenting or spacing. That's when I did my homework and bought this Delphi set.)
Trollope is surprisingly fun to read. He is a wordsmith, not unlike Austen, who knows how to tell a story--and he does it well. That's why he is unique among authors included in such complete works collections; virtually EVERYTHING he wrote is not only worth reading but enjoyable to read.
I plan on buying many more of the already-released Delphi collections, and I look forward to even more of them being produced (how about one for the brilliant Arthur Machen?)
