1.0 out of 5 stars Do not buy on kindle 3 Nov 2011
Format:Kindle Edition
We downloaded this guide on to our kindle for a five week trip around Indonesia. The kindle version is appallingly bad to use to the point where it began to ruin our trip. It is incredibly difficult to negotiate around, the maps are unreadable with the legends ending up on different pages so you had to keep scrolling backwards and forwards to see what the numbers were referring to. The links within the pages to other areas in the book generally took you somewhere completely different to where it should have been and there is no ability to flick from the map pages to say the eating or sleeping descriptions making it difficult to read about somewhere you wanted to go and then find it on the map. It is basically just the book PDFed onto the kindle with no added features to make it usable, considering that when you normally use a guide book you spend most of your time flicking through referring to several pages at once. I thought the ability to book mark would help but unfortunately when bookmarking there is no way you can name the bookmarks and this makes it very difficult to know which of the many bookmarks you have relate to what you are looking for.
Having now used other media on the kindle like the guardian newspaper I now realise how possible it is to make non linear reading material usable on the kindle and only highlights how incredibly lazy lonely planet have been in transferring their paper guides into a kindle format. This is a huge shame because the ability to have all our guide books on the kindle for travelling was one of the main reasons we bought it because how amazing it would be not to have to carry all that extra weight.

2.0 out of 5 stars Tricky on a kindle 12 Mar 2012
Format:Kindle Edition
As always informative but kindle issue bit tricky with maps and flicking from page to page. Also not the best book for real opinions on places. Not the best lonely planet book by a mile.

5.0 out of 5 stars Great value! 12 May 2012
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
A very comprehensive and updated guide for Indonesia. A very simple guide to take you through the vast area.
I purchased this book for the Sumatra section and have more that enough to plan out a road trip!

3.0 out of 5 stars Book is good, don't buy it on kindle though! 17 Jun 2013
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
If you were thinking of saving space in your bag by buying this on kindle, don't bother! It is so UN-user-friendly. If you are used to the lonely planet style and want to flick between pages and use the maps it is just impossible! Wish I'd spent my money on the actual book instead...

3.0 out of 5 stars Not as up to date as it could be 28 Feb 2013
By Nimski
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
Recently visited java, Lombok, Gillii and Bali. This guide was OK but often outdated especially when it came to the reviews of hotels and bars. It also had some misinformation on travel arrangements. So whilst ok I ended up making more use of the Internet.

5.0 out of 5 stars A Life Saver! 17 Feb 2013
By N.Rosie
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
This guide is incredibly useful if travelling to Indonesia. I met some other people whilst there who had a guide but it wasn't 'Lonely Planet' and they struggled to find certain places that the guide had mentioned. This Lonely Planet guide is incredibly accurate and very helpful.

This book is good. It contains lots of infotmation about the different islands of Indonesia but, on the other side, this information is too many general.
