Rated 4 out of 5 by from Required for School Was required for school but then we barely used it. Good dictionary but kinda pricey in my opinion.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great, but i loved the hardcover better I bought this paperback because I volunteer at nursing homes and retirement homes and in my Reading Groups I sometimes get questions about words as I'm reading books to them. I have a very good vocabulary but occasionally there would be a word that it would be good to look up. I have the hardcover version of the Oxford Canadian dictionary at home, so I bought this paperback to carry with me for my Reading Groups. It has a lot of words but not anywhere near the number of words in the hardcover book and wouldn't you know it, those were the words I needed. So this paperback has not been as useful to me as I had hoped, but it is still good.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from A great vocabulary builder People can learn new words and expand their knowledge of the ones they already know. In the digital age it is still a good resource to have.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from If you like words - this is the book for you I bought this bestseller and managed to avoid any spoilers before I did. So I went into it sight unseen. I usually like fantasy or crime thrillers but right from the first page this book had me hooked. It has something for everyone. You like animals? It has animals - horses, bears, you name it. You like food? It has food - cake, pie, you name it. You like possessive pronouns? My oh my your in for a treat their in this book. Really - you have to buy this book. I am just hoping they make it into a movie.
