A Jumbled Mess of Dutch
By Lockerz the Squirrel!!!
Well, when you go to search the dictionary it only looks up English words so if you're trying to translate a Dutch word to English you are S.O.L. What's worse is when you look up an English word the Dutch translation is awkward in the fact that it gives you multiple Dutch words with no explanation as to parts of speech or why they're even there. The whole thing's a jumbled mess.

Usable, but simple.
This dictionary is not as good as for instance the New Oxford American Dictionary, which recognises declensions etc. E.g, the New Oxford recognises 'walked' as an inflectional form of 'walk'; this one wants you to change 'walked' into 'walk'.

Not enough words > useless
As a dutchman, reading only english books on my kindle I was and I still am very happy with the OXFORD dictionary. More than 99% of the words I don't know are in that dictionary!
When I saw there was a English-Dutch dictionary I immediately bought it and set it as the default dictionary on my Kindle 3. I have used it for about 10 times to look up a word. Out of the 10 words it only could find 2. The other 8 were not in the dictionary! The same evening I was using the Oxford dictionary again.
I'm considering deleting the Dutch-English dictionary from my Kindle and Kindle account permanently. It is just taking space, it is of no use at all and it reminds me of my mistake in buying this book. @amazon, can I get my money back when I return the book?
