"Nothing happened - it would not download"

May 14, 2015  |  By Download does nothing

 |  Version: The Complete Shakespeare Reader 1.0

Pros

No Pros because it would not download

Cons

waste of my time plus possibly infected my device with a virus - what other reason could you have for offering a download that seemingly does nothing?

Summary

I downloaded the .exe file, then ran it. It asked the usual questions about permission to install files on my device, and agree to terms & conditions. It would up saying I had successfully installed the installer -- WHAAAA...? I don't want to install the installer - I want the installer to install the application. Lather, rinse, repeat. Every time I tried, this is all that happened: the installer kept telling me I had installed the installer. Surreally annoying.

"An excellent resource for all Shakespeareans."

December 02, 2009  |  By thequeenofcurdsandcream

 |  Version: The Complete Shakespeare Reader 1.0

Pros

I welcomed the opportunity of locating words or quotations, either within a specific play, or more generally across the range of plays.

Cons

It doesn't include the poetry and I wish the site would specifiy the Shakespeare editions that are used.

Summary

I was offered a download whilst studying for an MA in Shakespeare and found it invaluable for locating quotations when I was unsure exactly from where they originated. Once I'd identified what I was looking for I was able to pick up whichever text I was using and find its exact location, although a mention of which edition was used would have helped to save a little more time. The site could be improved by including the Sonnets and narrative poems. However it functions as the best concordance that I have found online (although this isn't its primary function) and saves a huge amount of time.

"Good start, a few suggestions below"

August 02, 2009  |  By KeithHPotter

 |  Version: The Complete Shakespeare Reader 1.0

Pros

Quick, pretty comprehensive, free

Cons

Doesn't fit my screen - hard to get at buttons (full screen etc.)
In full screen, it would be good to be able to increase text size to take advantage of screen width.
Bookmarking would be a benefit.
