5.0 out of 5 stars Great stuff!! December 18, 2010
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
Great, great stuff in this collection! I purchased this as soon as I saw how many different translations and versions of all the myths were in it. I found the table of contents to be really good. It works great for me. I mean it must be 1000's of pages long, and it makes it way easier for me to be able to jump to a specific chapter within a specific work than to have to page through any entire work itself. There's a lot of reading here and I really look forward to spending lots of time getting into it!

3.0 out of 5 stars Great Collection poor formatting/navigation March 12, 2011
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
This is an incredible and huge collection of classical literature. While these works are public domain and can be acquired for free from other sources, it is hard to come by a single collection this size for $3. Homer, Ovid, Virgil, Sophocles, Hesiod, Euripides, Apollonius, Apulieus, Apollodorus, Aesop, Aeschylus, Aristophanes all in one collection.
There are several drawbacks to this collection, however. As another reviewer has pointed out navigation is incredibly tedious; rather than having a main table of contents and then sub-contents within specific authors and works, the publisher put one single table of contents at the beginning of the whole work which lists every chapter, footnotes etc. for these works which makes the table of contents incredibly lengthy. Just getting through Homer's Iliad and Odyssey is 18 pages on font size 3 on my Kindle.
Also most of the translations of these works come from the 19th century and are quite archaic - many "hath"s "thee"s "art thou"s etc. Most of these works have much fresher translations.
Overall this collection is a good reference work for the money. While most of these works can be acquired for nothing through various sources this collection gathers them in one file for minimal cost.

5.0 out of 5 stars Nice to have all the translations in one place November 23, 2010
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
Well this afternoon when I started looking up the Iliad and Odyssey and Amazon my goal was try and find a few different translations. What I really wanted was a selection, some prose, some in poem form, stuff like that. Basically I wanted to get all the classic ones I've heard mentioned before. So I was really pleased to find this collection. Its so nice to have all the translations I wanted in one place. And even though I suppose they're not technically extras, the other works are great too. I've heard of all of them before especially the Aenied and Odeipus and I've always been interested in them and was thinking about getting the Aenied as well after I found the Iliad and the Odysseys I wanted because I know that in a way it carries on the Odyssey story. So its nice that its already there also with a couple of different translations. The others are just cherries on the cake to me and they should be lots of fun to read after Homer's work. So I'm really happy with this collection.

2.0 out of 5 stars Great Content - Hideous Presentation December 17, 2010
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
It's not what it sounds like ... in fact, it's better. I already have a couple ancient editions of Edith Hamilton's books and a couple others that are wonderful but, fortunately, this isn't your typical Greek/Roman Mythology tome - very little of it is that, actually, and what is included is by some Apollodorus guy I'd never heard of so it's going to be all new!

"Table of Contents" in quotes because it is even more hideously formatted than the Complete Shakespeare collection also from Everlasting Flames where only lobotomized monkeys work in the desktop publishing department. This DIFFICULT to navigate table of contents IS IN ALL CAPS AND EVERY SINGLE CHAPTER OF EVER SINGLE WORK IS IN IT SO YOU HAVE TO SWIPE THROUGH DOZENS OF PAGES JUST TO GET PAST THE ODYSSEY ...

I've found oodles of public domain eBooks people make for free just for the public good that look fantastic. There's no excuse not to take a few minutes and format these collections so they don't make you feel like paying only $2.99 was probably too much.

5.0 out of 5 stars Really, really great collection! December 16, 2010
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
I am a huge fan of all the Ancient Greek and Roman myths. I'm also a bit a collector in the way that I like to have a complete set of things, whether it's a DVD collection or all the music by an artist or whatever. So when I saw this collection, I was mega-excited! It has like all the plays and all the works by all these ancient writers. Some stuff I hadn't even heard of before. And it's got a full set of all the famous translations of works like the Iliad and Odyssey. And the fact that it covers verse and prose is just great for me because I got like a whole complete collection in one! So I think they did a great job and I'm really, really happy with it!

5.0 out of 5 stars Must Have Collection May 2, 2011
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
You need this collection for your Kindle. Every time you have to listen to some luddite bibliophile natter on about how they'll never give up paper volumes, ask them how many translations of the Iliad they have on their person. If they have more than three in paper form, go ahead and ask how much they paid for them. Never in history have humans been able to receive greater quantity of greater quality literature for so little.

The history of success in the West is also a history of how well versed their people were in the classics. With this collection for the Kindle as evidence, we have volumes of accomplishment beyond counting yet to write.

This is what the Kindle was created for.
