3.0 out of 5 stars The REAL revision!! 17 May 2013
By Maz
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
Scholarly but interesting. I keep buying these little books when I know that most are too 'highbrow' for me but I love the way in which they are written.
The beginning is a mass of facts and figures that only a true student of the History of Marco Polo would want to know or understand.

Who wouldn't be delighted to find the public domain list of FREE classic literature. This is fantastic. All the titles I've always wanted to read and for free - this is my kind of kindle heaven. I love the way they arrive on your kindle, they're so quick, it's like magic. Thank you public domain!

1.0 out of 5 stars A great example of a bad Kindle book...even for free. 24 April 2009
By Kent Davis - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
Let me start by saying "My bad!" if you came here from my review of the Kindle 2: Amazon's New Wireless Reading Device (Latest Generation).

When I bought my Kindle I was excited to instantly download two free books to start playing with it and I mentioned these in my review. I never opened this one...until now.

Mea culpa.

This is a great example of a bad Kindle book! Like all the free books, it has no linked Table of Contents. But the worst part is that Marco Polo is an incredibly complex tale filled with footnotes, editor's comments, endnotes and foreign languages accumulated over the last 600 years. That makes it impossible to enjoy (and comprehend) in the Kindle format.

I wanted to see this version because I'm now reading an incredibly good new print edition The Travels of Marco Polo: Edited by Peter Harris (Everyman's Library (Cloth)) and wanted to compare.

No comparison. Buy the print edition. You'll love it!

5.0 out of 5 stars Wow you 1-star raters are nuts 6 Jan 2013
By Uh huh. - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
The book is fine. The little nav bar on your kindle tells you where the text starts (location 4498 of 13872, for those too stupid or lazy to figure it out) and all the various prologues and prefaces before that point are just the older books were made, people. Calm down, this ebook is fine and contains a good translation of the original books.

I'd have given this ebook 4/5 stars but upped it by one to offset the bs ratings it's been getting by some very lazy pablum fed readers.

1.0 out of 5 stars This book is a mess 26 April 2011
By Nick - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
When I looked at the previous and only one star review, I thought, man, it *can't* be this bad. Well, it is.

I can handle no table of contents or internal formatting, but this book truly is a disaster. The first 10% of the book is a mess of confusing forewards and notes about Henry Yule and his family. You can't really make out when this book begins and is just a disaster. I got 20% of the way in before I gave up and deleted the book off my Kindle, so I can try to find a properly formatted version, whatever the cost.

Still, I want to read about Marco Polo's travels in my Kindle, and will have to look elsewhere. It's a shame - such a great story needs better than a bad ebook.

5.0 out of 5 stars the long trail 25 Dec 2011
By Amazon Customer - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
This is a very active written book without any fancy trims it stays on track as to the travel and conquest goals and you imagine the country obstacles around the south of France and North Italy then just as it is today without the highways and bridges to help us make the journey over the Alps ... great for history enthusiastic
