Product Description

The color Kindle edition of The Atlantic is now available on the Kindle Reading App for your iPad, iPhone and Android devices. Download issues at no extra cost from Archived Items.

For more than 150 years, The Atlantic has been the premier magazine for coverage and analysis of current events, international affairs, and culture. A great deal has changed since Ralph Waldo Emerson, Oliver Wendell Holmes, Henry Wadsworth Longfellow, James Russell Lowell, and Harriet Beecher Stowe planned the first issue in 1857. But since its inception, The Atlantic has given voice to some of the most provocative ideas of its time, from Henry David Thoreau's blunt naturalism to Martin Luther King's calls for justice. Today, The Atlantic's readership numbers 1.5 million, and the magazine maintains an unwavering commitment to publishing authors whose ideas help move society forward.

The Kindle edition of The Atlantic contains most articles and some images found in the print edition. For your convenience, issues are auto-delivered wirelessly to your reading device at the same time subscribers receive paper versions in their mailboxes.

4.0 out of 5 stars Great example of US Journalism 18 Sept. 2012
By John
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
The long form stories in The Atlantic put UK publications to shame. They are very readable, well researched and less gushing (or cynical) than many UK magazines

5.0 out of 5 stars Great publication, wide-ranging topics. 30 Mar. 2013
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
If you are looking for something between the British/American political punditry magazines and the more higher brow literary reviews, this is perfect.

4.0 out of 5 stars Read this. 10 Mar. 2014
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
Great magazine. Original. Impossible not to see illuminating new perspectives after reading. A problem I've noticed is that on paperwhite, it doesn't display names of the writers. If that could be sorted, it would reap greater rewards. (Read on kindle paperwhite)

4.0 out of 5 stars Better now 26 Nov. 2010
By Amazon Customer - Published on
Format:Kindle Edition
The illustrations are now included in the Kindle edition, and they've stopped cutting the questions out of Goldberg's advice column, so now the Atlantic is really worth the price.

4.0 out of 5 stars Bad License Agreements 19 April 2012
By Amazon Customer - Published on
Format:Kindle Edition
I just subscribed to my first Kindle magazine subscription (the Atlantic monthly). This is more of Amazon/Kindle issue however should be made known to anyone purchasing Kindle magazine subscriptions. Kindle magazine subscriptions can only be read on one device or software installation. This means if you select it to be read on your Kindle device you may not read it on your PC, Mac, iBook, iPhone or any other electronic device. This significantly reduces the versatility in reading your purchased material.

I'm sure I will be criticized for providing a negative review in the Atlantic magazine product area, but please note I did give the magazine review four stars

3.0 out of 5 stars All The Text, None Of The Illustrations 23 Dec. 2007
By Brandon Ross - Published on
Format:Kindle Edition
I love The Atlantic, so I was ecstatic when I saw it on the Kindle list.

Overall, I'm disappointed. All the text is there, but no illustrations, graphics, or charts. One of my favorite sections is Primary Sources, filled with interesting charts and maps. For some reason, NONE of these make it to the Kindle. Nothing but text. I guess it sounds immature to say, "where are all the pictures!?" But I certainly miss them, and the content is not the same without them.

But again, it is nice to have some form of The Atlantic available. I hope the illustrations are eventually included.

3.0 out of 5 stars Incomplete? 14 Sept. 2008
By Catherine Michael - Published on
Format:Kindle Edition
Since I don't get the paper edition anymore, I've been wondering how complete the Kindle edition is. I didn't really expect graphics, since most other Kindle periodicals don't have them or leave most of them out, but I was shocked when the latest issue of Atlantic in the Kindle edition had a list of the contents of the Election Special, but not the Special itself. Bummer.

3.0 out of 5 stars Great Magazine, but incomplete 2 Mar. 2009
By Tyler Hass - Published on
Format:Kindle Edition
As much as I like the Atlantic, the Kindle version pales in comparison to the physical magazine. There is no reason photos, graphs and other visual elements should be left out.
I also dislike the index, which is just a listing of sections. I would much rather have a link to each individual article and a description of what the article is about. Nowhere is there a brief description of the contents of each article and the titles aren't always descriptive. Clever maybe, but not descriptive. So, I end up reading a paragraph or two before I decide whether or not it's something that I'm interested in reading. Occasionally this means I expose myself to something I might have skipped over, but I would still prefer to have some better cues.
The cost is low for the Kindle edition, but I would rather pay extra for the full experience.
