in England, an imposter lays claim to the young man's inheritance.

1.0 out of 5 stars It can't be read - don't waste your time 11 Feb 2014

Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
I agree with the previous reviewer. This version comes in a tiny font on a grey background and is impossible to read. The size of the font cannot be changed. I wish I had read the comments first. Ask Amazon for a refund.

4.0 out of 5 stars Good enjoyable read 23 July 2013

Really interesting and enjoyable read. Bear in mind the style is genuinely old fashioned as it was written in the late 19th century.

1.0 out of 5 stars Unreadable DO NOT BUY 23 April 2013
By Pamanti
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
Having read the reviews on the free version and the problems some people had,I opted to pay for a better version. BIG MISTAKE! This is unreadable. It has come as minute white print on a dark background, and the size cannot be changed. I've downloaded the sample to check it wasn't a download error and it is exactly the same.

4.0 out of 5 stars Convict Story in Australia 12 Oct 2012
By Chucky - Published on
For the Term of his Natural Life shows the harshness (and unfairness) of convict life in Australia. It's a tragic story, but that's the way of our Australian history.
