1.0 out of 5 stars Ruined by poor TOC, strange font and incomplete to boot. September 18, 2010
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
If you look at the TOC, it says "Complete Works". It ain't. In addition:

1. The TOC is a disorganized jumble; you cannot tell which books are part of which genre/series, nor are they in any order I can discern.

2. In addition, whatever font-sizing is used is different from everything else on the Kindle (Latest Generation), so you'll have to play with that every single time you switch to something else (dictionary, reference, etc.).

3. This is NOT a "Complete" works by any means. The Martian/Barsoom series has only 5 of the 12. Haven't bothered to check the rest.

3.0 out of 5 stars Needs to be re-edited for Kindle September 4, 2010
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
I'm not going to say much about the content. Just be warned that reading too much Burroughs at once will reveal that he basically writes the same story over and over again! But I love them anyway and the price is definitely right. I would especially recommend *The Mad King*. Better than *The Prisoner of Zenda* in my opinion. I loved it as a teenager and I still like it a lot.

However, just try to get to any individual work without reading all the way through. Some of the table of contents links work, some don't. Paging through a book you don't want to read in order to get to one you do is tedious to say the least.

One of the deficiencies of the Kindle's system, in my opinion, is that it doesn't have the line-break/hyphenation intelligence of any decent word processor. This e-book was obviously created for some device that's not a Kindle. The typesetter (possibly a scanner?) hard-coded hyphenations and they ALWAYS fall in the middle of the Kindle's line, regardless of the type size. It's annoying and if I hadn't been dead set on reading some of the works I loved in my youth I probably would have given up.

Content = 5 stars, presentation = 1 star. Hence, 3 stars.

4.0 out of 5 stars Classic for a reason August 14, 2010
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
Half way through the first book of about thirty, which details the origins of John Carter Warlord of Mars, I find the book an easy read, and not hopelessly dated as some science fiction from this period might be. I am reading it on my phone, the kindle app for the droid seems to work well although the menu doesn't seem to work so I am destine to read the novels in order, which is perhaps not a bad thing, the price is defiantly right, so if you want to get a lot of very good to okay SF novels for a low low price this seems like a good way to go.

4.0 out of 5 stars Good if you like fantasy April 10, 2012
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
I was interested in the book because of the movie. The books were written a long time ago and it shows in the type of language used. However, I enjoy a good historical fantasy, so it works for me. I have not yet seen the movie so I do not know how it compares. It reads easily enough and it is easy to stop and restart without having to re-read parts of the book.
