This book as a "table of contents" but it's just a plain-text list - you can't click on any item. This means the only way to go to a particular story or poem is to search for its title or page through the book one page at a time.

On one hand, this book had a number of short stories I had not read before. One thing I found interesting after reading several stories, was that some characters appear in more than one story. I enjoyed the stories, many of which were about life in India during the period that England ruled there.

On the other hand, it did not have some of Kipling's "standards," like The Jungle Book and Kim. It's not labelled as "The COMPLETE Works," just "The Works."

However, I did not find it difficult to navigate, because you simply click "Go to" and it lists the individual stories and chapters. I don't know if this is because I was reading on a Kindle Touch, but I did not have the problem that other reviewers did.

Although the content are incredible tales and verse, The layout of the book made it nearly impossible to navigate. There was no organized Table of Contents, so finding a particular volume was a matter of guesswork that I could not master- an impossible read.

I can't speak for all devices, but this book is perfectly easy to navigate on Kindle Touch with updated software. I think this feature was previously unavailable, which is probably why many of the reviews complain, but hit "Go To," and the entire table of contents pops up. You can hit any title and jump to that particular work.

As mentioned above this book is pretty much useless on Kindke because it is so hard to navigate. However, it's got lots of good stuff in it.

British Empire high adventure. battle scenes. heroic bravery depicted. 19th century swashbuckling to wonderful animal tales, to children's stories, to social comment. this writer is definitely the man's man of story-telling. read "the man who would be king" for sure, the ballad of Gunga Din, the Jungle Book as amongst the best known of his works. or "the Light That Failed", a sensitive look at fate wasting monumental talent.

The [Very Incomplete] Works of Rudyard Kipling {that can be offered in] One Volume [free] Edition is missing many of Kipling's most popular works, but since it's free, if there's anything you do want, it's worth getting. Some have complained about the lack of an active table of contents, but if you know how to use your Kindle, it's not impossible to find what you want, if slightly tedious. Here are two ways of how to find, for example, "The Man Who Would Be King", which is the only piece in this incomplete collection that interests me (I THOUGHT I'd be getting JUST SO STORIES free, since that's what I'd put in the search bar, silly me…). Press Go To on the bar at the top of my Touch Kindle, 2nd Generation. Press Contents. Ascertain that it's in Volume III. Go back to Go To, which now displays the individual contents of Volume I, and also lists the other volumes. Scroll down to Volume III, press it. That takes you to the beginning of the volume. Go back to Go To once more, which now lists the contents of Volume III, and select "The Man Who Would Be King". This convoluted way requires no "typing" into the search bar, which is perhaps a simpler way. But by reading the Contents you can see what's in it, and realize what's not. BTW: You can get the JUST SO STORIES and THE JUNGLE BOOK free from Gutenberg.org. by entering the author's name. For some reason, JUST SO STORIES didn't come up under its title, though since I've reported it to them, it may be fixed by now. If this review has been helpful (as I hope it has), please click the "Yes" button!

I had high hopes for a one-volume collection of Kipling -- until I discovered there were no page numbers, and there was no way to skip from one work to another other than page-by-page. It makes it quite unusable!
