I'm not sure why that one person had a problem finding the Jumping Frog story in a previous review. Everything is here, literally everything. All you need to do to find it all on your Kindle is hit Menu, then "Go to..." and then scroll down to the table of contents button. There's a ton here, so you need to page over to the right to find more stories, which is where "The Celebrated Jumping Frog of Calaveras County" appears. There's no reason anyone should have rated this a "one star." I'm flabergasted at all the stories that appear here, and I had no idea Twain was as prolific as he was. Very impressed with this collection, and I recommend it to all!!

I just downloaded the book to my Kindle, and the Celebrated Jumping Frog story is there. It is a little hard to navigate to, but if you go to the contents of the short stories, click on the Celebrated Jumping Frog, and then hit previous page you will be at the title. All in all this is a great buy.

I cheaped out and bought this to read Tom Sawyer and Huck Finn, but neither of those have any indents or spacing between paragraphs, making it very irritating to try to read. I manned up and spent five bucks for the Mobi version, and it looks much better, indented and spaced, and even has illustrations on several of the works. I admit I made the same mistake with Shakespeare. The cheap version was irritatingly difficult to read, and the Mobi version was superior. I'm looking for Mobi versions first from now on. Here's the Mobi link to the complete Mark Twain: Works of Mark Twain: The Adventures of Tom Sawyer, The Adventures of Huckleberry Finn, The Mysterious Stranger, A Dog's Tale, The Innocents Abroad, A ... Arthur's Court, Roughing It & more (mobi)

Do not buy this book... It's poorly printed, poorly bound AND beyond the lame manufacturing it's not even the book that the title suggests!!
To will be lucky if you find a single complete work of mark twain when you open this piece of rubbish!

Moreover, don't purchase books from booknackrh if you can avoid it... They still won't refund the transaction after ripping me off!!

This Kindle edition contains all of Mark Twain's novels, short stories and essays. I had only read Tom Sawyer and Huck Finn but after working my way through his short stories, I have become a great fan. The Kindle edition is easy to use, the table of contents makes it a breeze to navigate and I can't seem to get enough. I intend to read all short stories and essays first and then tackle the novels. I highly recommend this edition. Mark Twain is a genius! God Bless the Kindle and there collection books!

While extremely thorough, this compilation is extremely hard to use. I have trouble navigating through the different stories and articles. There doesn't seem to be a workable main table of contents that would make navigation through the book much easier.

The paper version of this book does no contain "The complete Works of Mark Twaiun". Just one of them: The Prince and the pauper.

For the previous version (white cover, b&w picture of Mark Twain) (purchased and returned for 99 cents):

I was so excited to get all of one of my favorite authors' works for under a buck.

But there is really no sense in buying this Kindle collection if there is no ACTIVE table of contents. YES, the table of contents is there, but you have to go and try to FIND IT, bookmark it, and then the short stories table of contents does not work.

If that doesn't bother you, then by all means go get it.

I am, however, going to look for a better Kindled version of all of Mark Twain's works, even if that means I have to pay a buck more.

For the current version (blue cover, b&w photographic-looking picture of Mark Twain) (purchased and satisfied at $2.99):

PROS:

- great table of content (TOC) (it finally works!): easy to navigate, etc.
- some of the editorial mistakes have been corrected; for example, a previous commenter said that Huck Finn was missing from chapter 36 and on. I checked and as of August 28, 2012, all the chapters in Huck Finn are there.
- fun pictures and photographs

CONS:

- MASSIVE BODY OF WORK = long download time. I'm talking over 20 minutes here. I would download it on your USB and then transfer over to your Kindle if I were you.
- I'm sure there are typos, but in such a huge literary body of work, I won't be able to find them all too quickly.

For an extra $2, the TOC is fabulous and it LOOKS incredible (good type, etc.). The illustrations/photos are great to look at, and the biographies look actually somewhat interesting at a glance!

If you're a fan of Mark Twain, or even just like some of his works, this is worth your money.

P.S.
