The way all of this content is organized is one of the reasons I love this book. It has all of the plays organized in the table of contents by each of the subjects (comedies, tradgedys, and histories) with links you can click on. When you click on one of the links of one of the plays, for example: If you click on Romeo and Juliet, you become redirected to another table of contents that organize the all the scenes in all the different kind of acts.
Now the formatting is the best you can get for being displayed on the kindle. It shows the name of the person speaking and then under the name, and indented is what they say. This kind of formatting is my favorite kind of formatting I've seen so far. It makes reading a play so much easier.
But what I really like is that I have all of shakespeares sonnets and plays, all on one small electric device, Instead of having it in one massive textbook.
In all honesty, I wouldn't mind paying $10-20 on a collection this organized.
Overall I think this is my favorite purchase so far.
Please let me know if this review helped you :)
The formatting is clean, and, as far as I've read, there are few typos. Well worth a few bucks to be able to find your way around in what would be several hundred pages of printed matter. Someone looking for commentary and notes should look elsewhere, though; this is just a neat presentation of the works themselves.
A minor note, not a negative. For those devices that can view in either landscape or portrait mode, there is no advantage to the landscape mode. The lines of prose and poetry are necessarily short due to Shakespeare's pervasive use of iambic pentameter. When one reads silently, without at least sub-vocalizing, this may not seem obvious. Try reading any of the works aloud, if only to oneself to get the cadence of the words.
