Reviews - What do customers think about Merriam-Webster Thesaurus?

The Merriam-Webster Thesaurus  Sep 28, 2008
This book is well formatted. It is easy reading, informative and enjoyable. I highly recommend it to writers and researchers of all levels.
Helping My Granddaughter  Oct 18, 2007
I purchased the Thesaurus for my Granddaughter to use in school this year.
She was very delighted to get The Merriam-Webster Thesaurus she also said it will be very helpful when writing her papers.
Not Recommended  Oct 14, 2006
When I got back into writing this year, I figured I needed a thesaurus more current than the old Random House College Edition Thesaurus, circa 1984, that was in my desk. And using [...] just didn't provide enough context to the words. This Webster Thesaurus was a cheap purchase which I figured would be easy to use - heck, a thesaurus is a thesaurus, right? I was wrong.

Using it for about a month now has been an endless source of frustration. Almost every word I seem to look up has a one sentence definition followed by a reference to another word, where the synonyms actually are. So I have to flip to that page. It is 667 pages long and yet it seems very few of the entries are actually useful. And when I finally get to a page with a lot of synonyms, I rarely seem to find the right word that I want, for whatever reason. Just a massive disappointment.

I'm currently deciding between The Oxford Writer's Thesaurus or Roget's College Thesaurus and when either of them arrive, I'm throwing this thesaurus into the trash. It's wasted much more time than it was worth.
Extremely Small Print  Apr 17, 2000
Even people with good eye sight will struggle with this...had I known that I would have got the large print version. As for the thesaurus itself.. it is pretty good. There are a few little code symbols you have to remember and you may have to bounce around the book a bit to get that "perfect" word. It is full of words though and probably a good buy for kids grades 8-12. If it would have had just a little bit larger print I would have rated it 4 stars but being able to read it is an important thing...especially if you have to work on something a little later in the evening when your eyes are slightly strained all ready.
