Its totally worth the 99 cents for the Kindle version. The books are great! But its not perfect by any means.
If you have a Kindle and like to read at all, and why do you have a Kindle if you don't want to read, I highly recommend giving this a try. I don't recall what I paid for it, but it's 14 full stories about Oz by the original author. Currently for less than a dollar. I have to adjust the size down one for this book, compared to most others, but that is a tiny complaint.
If all you know about Oz is the original movie, give this a try and find a more complicated world and characters then you thought. Love the author's notes.
I have a Kindle 2, and the Bedford Park Books set is formatted for the Kindle. I have had no problems with it. The table of contents is fully functional, with easy access to each chapter of each of the 14 books.
As one recent reviewer noted, this collection does not include The Woggle-Bug Book. However, that book is technically not an Oz series book, even if it does feature an Oz character visiting our world. Also, it clearly states on the cover of this collection that this is a 14 book set of the Oz series by L. Frank Baum.
I grew up with these stories, and I love them. I like that these wonder tales, unlike older fairy tales (Grimm, Perrault, Anderson), involve characters from late 19th/early 20th Century America that are transported to Oz.
Some other reviewer complained that you can find all of these books available as individual books for free. That is true. Nevertheless, I totally do not regret paying $0.95 for the convenience of getting all 14 beloved books together in one volume AND formatted for Kindle with an active Table of Contents. For me, that is well worth it.
I also have the Bedford Parks Books versions of the Complete Sherlock Holmes and the Complete Jane Austen for the Kindle. I have no complaints with those either. I would definitely buy more collections put together by them.
If you're a fan of Piers anthony's Xanth series, you've got to at least try a few books of the series.
If you haven't read the first book of the series, don't base your expectations of it based on the movie. The movie stops halfway thru the book.
