I purchased this book because of the 200 greatest literary writings. However, I do not think that when over 150 of the writings are Shakespeare's sonnets and poems that this qualifies as three-quarters of the greatest writings; therefore, very disappointing to me. Of the remaining 50, I have enjoyed reading many of the stories for the first time; but would have preferred 200 writings by may 100-150 authors not just the 32 presented.

I didn't read carefully enough and thought I was ordering The Harvard Classics. This is, in fact, the Harvard Classics SHELF OF FICTION and does not include Dante, Homer, Greek philosophers, and the myriad of other works included in the complete Harvard Classics. That being said, this is well worth every penny of $2.99. At first glance, it seems very easy to maneuver around in by clicking on items in the Table of Contents. I look forward to catching up on my classics!

I have downgraded from 5 stars to 3 stars because I see that none of the pictures have downloaded properly. This is true for both the kindle latest generation and kindle for PC. Will contact Amazon.

While there is no doubt that this is remarkable value, it's should really be called "46 Greatest Novels and 154 of Shakespeare's Sonnets / Poems". It's a shame for something like this to be tarnished by false advertising, but there we have it. I'd recommend sampling it before buying and checking it out. Still, under $3 for 46 classic works is pretty good!

The very good selection of different works by the compilers includes so many that every reader will find more than enough to his or her liking. BUT the Kindle does not have an adequate indexing system. It is not possible to move from place to place in the various books; the only convenient operation is to go back to the spot where one was last reading and even that is sometimes awkward. From there to go to a particular new place or places is very tedious, in fact impossible in practical terms.

Have spent a lot of time trying to find index so I could pick individual classics. Product only allows reading in order as printed.

After reading the reviews of the Harvard Classics Library Shelf of Classics, I took one reader's advice and requested a sample before ordering. I do this often and generally buy the book as a result.. But not this time. If there is an interactive Table of Contents as stated, I did not see it and one review indicated it was not interactive. There was no table of contents in the sample I received which was one of the items I was interested in. Instead there were 8599 locations of Tom Jones. It gave me no information of any of the other works included and did not encourage me to order the complete works. Amazon generally does a better job of previewing titles.

The vast majority of the so-called "200" are Shakespeare's sonnets, each one counted individually. Very few long works - probably none besides what is listed in their promo.

Very disappointing product as could not access a table of contents to selectively choose from the 200 available novels. Strongly recommend that Amazon upgrade access capability.

new Kindle coming out
I have not heard it, but I know that Amazon has to consider whether to continue to make its own hardware, or concentrate on the software (books and apps). We are in the middle of a great upheaval in operating systems, in which the Android seems to get more users every day, while the new... Read More
