Ok so it was less than a pound for the entire translated copy of the surviving books from Livy's History of Rome.
But as so often with Kindle version of books (sometimes full price versions!!!) it is full of errors.

I have read 20% of the book so far and have bookmarked over 270 (yes 270) errors, caused by lack of spaces between words. This means there is gobbledegook on virtually every page, frequently several errors in the same paragraph.
These could have been found by the simple application of a spell-checker.

Sooner or later Amazon is going to have to apply some of its undoubted clout to so called publishers, and refuse to put error strewn material out there for their readers.
I am a fan of Amazon, but am becoming annoyed at their lack of willingness to apply some quality control.

A cheap item, that does not work, is the most expensive thing you can buy.
Customers who buy goods that do not work, will go elsewhere.
The high street and the web is full of examples of very big names who ultimately forgot about the quality of the goods they sold, and are now just history.

4.0 out of 5 stars slow 11 Feb 2013

Livy's history is a long read and at times quite slow but it is required reading for any armchair history buff. The reward is knowing and understanding Rome and the era from one of the great source materials and at this price you cant go wrong. If you have the time then dig in as Livy is essential reading

5.0 out of 5 stars For Roman students 30 Mar 2014

One of the great surviving books from ancient times, from one of the great Roman historians - He died in 17AD so don't expect too much from later than that!

Allowing for Livy's bias, this is a useful text in terms of understanding the period covered. Mainly useful for reference in my case.
