Book Description

The planet was unknown� a savagely primitive place where every man had to kill every other man - or live as a slave.



The inhabitants lived in the early Bronze Age one minute, and in the early Machine Age the next. Technology had degenerated into a number of mysteries jealously guarded by separate brotherhoods.



But Jason dinAlt was a gambler. He realised that if he was ever going to get a winning hand in this game, the brotherhoods would need a shuffle�

4.0 out of 5 stars Fixed! 12 Oct. 2011
By Dean

This was my original review "This Kindle version has been released with a load of other great classic sci-fi books and while the story is great this book itself is terrible, every page is littered with poor typos that look like the conversion was done by OCR and nobody bothered to check. Strangely the other 4 books I have read released by Gateway (Gollancz/Orion) at the same are fine, but something went horribly wrong on this one! If they fix it then this book is worth a read, great characterisation and a plot that flows along very nicely."

I am really happy to report that Gateway SF took down that version, fixed the typos and have now replaced it. Sadly Harry Harrison recently passed away but at least now you can get all three Deathworld books for the Kindle and hopefully enjoy them as much as I did!

4.0 out of 5 stars which is always a good thing. 8 Nov. 2014

First read this book twenty-five or so years ago. You should read Deathworld first to make sense of it, but then it's a cracking read. Reasonably fast paced yarn, with content that doesn't suffer too much from the early publication date (except cutting course "tapes" for hyperspace jumps).
Not as tongue-in-cheek as the Stainless Steel Rat series, but an enjoyable read with a few morality overtones.
Not too many text-conversion errors either, which is always a good thing.

2.0 out of 5 stars Great story but poor kindle edition 20 Oct. 2011
Verified Purchase
I agree with the previous reviewer.
This is a great story, part of the Deathworld trilogy that I originally read sometime in the late 70s or early 80s.
It's a really poor kindle edition though, full of typos and poor punctuation.
Very disappointing.

3.0 out of 5 stars Great Series, this version plagued by needless errors 25 Dec. 2011
By Amazon Customer - Published on Amazon.com

This is a review of the Kindle version by SF Gateway. The books in the series are amazing. The lack of even basic editing of the scanned work presented here is deplorable.

I have lost count of the number of times I have read and re-read the three books in this amazing series since I was kid. This volume is essentially a solo adventure pitting DinAlt against a world with little but his guile, am education, and tenacity to save him. Fast-paced, with a fun balance of ethics and antics, Harrison's form was near its peak in this series. The series rates a 5.

This edition of the work by SF Gateway is terrible however, with no possible effort at even a basic editing pass after an OCR scan of the original. Reduced the rating of this amazing series to a 3 to serve as a caution for potential buyers. Harrison, and this series, not to mention simple pride in one's work and product demand better.

3.0 out of 5 stars A great story spoiled by an inept kindle conversion 6 Oct. 2011
By Tassmith - Published on Amazon.com

I was delighted to find the last two Deathworld novels in Harry Harrisons' great trilogy now available for the Kindle.
Returning to these stories, after first reading them more then twenty years ago, I found them to be as much fun as I remembered.
However, the experience was almost ruined by the number and frequency of typos in converting the text to digital format.
I have no idea how this process works, but to pay $8 (far more then a good second hand printed copy costs) and end up with this mess left me feeling disappointed.
