1.0 out of 5 stars No figures !! 8 May 2012
By Reculet
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
Darwin makes frequent and important reference to figures (78 of them) in order to illustrate the significance of his arguments. The complete absence of figures in this 'free' version makes the book more or less impossible to read in the way intended by its author. My 1-star mark is directed at Amazon for publishing the book in this useless state rather than at Darwin's writing!

3.0 out of 5 stars A book to dip in 22 Mar. 2013
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
The style is a little off putting but for a little dip into the past it is a good read but I do find that I can only read ten or so pages at a time.

One can hardly award fewer than maximum stars for this title, or rather to amazon for offering it on kindle for universal reading. Its importance for us all is immense and I have chosen it just to educate myself, though as a Christian I shan't read it uncritically, and may find that I disagree with some of its conclusions.

1.0 out of 5 stars Laughably poor edition of a classic 21 July 2015
By Plod
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
This book has a disclaimer in the front claiming that this is a work of fiction. The text then has random numbers in it? I bought the Wordsworth edition for half the price which is far better.
