The stories are classic F. Scott but this Kindle version is riddled with distracting and sometimes even confusing merging of words (e.g., "forhead wound" instead of "for head wound").

It is difficult to say if this book is a good read or not. So far I have gotten through about three pages, and the spelling and grammatical errors as well as the type-os make it impossible to enjoy this book. I am not sure if I can continue with it, as the aforementioned errors make it incredibly hard to concentrate on the content.

A lot of really good short stories, including "The Curious Case of Benjamin Buttons", which is often left out of Fitzgerald collections. People who only know "The Great Gatsby" should delve in a little further and check these stories out. Fitzgerald was actually known more for his short stories in his own lifetime and these are great to read. They hold up well over time and are very good, human stories. Highly recommended.

This e-book is badly formatted. The following type of problem is too frequent. The 3 examples come from 1 sentence.

".. I feel pretty sure thathe has some ..."
"... he hasagreed to ..."
"... his way of reminding himself of hismisprision."

I haven't read all of the stories yet but I have highly enjoyed the ones I have read. I'm a fan of the author but new to short stories and I'm very pleased with my purchase.

I really enjoyed this book. It is a good read, hard to put down. I was not aware of these short stories.

And, of course, you cannot beat the price!

I ordered the 2017 digital edition of F.Scott Fitzgerald's Short Stories. The format is so garbled it is almost impossible to read. Words are strungtogether in twosandthrees until it drives you mad. The stories are not even separated properly. I can't understand how this was done so poorly.
Two stars because I bought this book for "Babylon Revisited," which is contained in the print but apparently not the Kindle book! I only discovered this omission after I purchased the Kindle. It seems to me the contents are about half the contents of the print. What gives? Why not list it as a separate book? Disappointed!!
