So I am a writer, not professionally, but I do rely on the use of dictionaries and thesauri several times a week in my pursuit to becoming a full fledged author. I do have a hard copy Thesaurus of the same brand, as well as a dictionary, but being the large books that they are it is difficult to take them everywhere with me. I tend to write on the go (full time Dad, full time work, cooker and cleaner of the house, etc). Therefore the Kindle, for me, is an excellent writing companion and so I thought it would be great to try out a Kindle version Thesaurus. I did read a few reviews and settled on this version and to conclude this review without more unnecessary information, I will say that this Thesaurus is alright. I just used it this morning to try and conjure up another word for glass. I got tired of using it in the same paragraph (glass doors, glass office walls, glass everywhere). So I look it up and there's only one definition for glass, referring to the glasses a person wears, rather than glass like glass pane or what have you. I look up glass in the dictionary's that come with the Kindle and find five different definitions. This tells me that whoever put this Thesaurus on the market did so in a manner inconsistent with the quality I expect from the Merriam-Webster brand. Certainly if I were to grab the hard copy of the same Thesaurus from a book shelf I would find several other definitions for the same word. Personally I think this product is a bit sloppy and is another example of why the American economy is in a slump, but I'm sure most of you would think that's stretching things a bit. Anyway, take it for what you will this product is certainly not worth the eight bucks, but it's better than nothing.
