I've read the entire Wild Cards series, and I was glad I was finally able to get my hands on this hard-to-find volume from the Kindle store. But although I love the stories and characters beyond description, the ebook version of DD5 is turning out to be very disappointing. Though the book started out well, about a quarter of the way into the book the signs of bad transcription from print to electronic begins to really show through: Missing section breaks; misspelled words ("o"s becoming "a"s); the kind of thing that turns up when a book is scanned for an electronic file and no one puts in an effort to proof it. And at times, the frequency of errors begins to distract from the reading experience. Editors and publishers, you really need to get your acts together and do better on this.
If you can ignore the obvious transcription errors, however, you're in for a great romp of a story. As usual with the Wild Cards series, being able to remember the now-immense cast of characters really helps to get the full impact of the story and the many character interactions, and to understand why this alternate-reality universe is the way it is. But the stories are written well enough that you can follow the stories without all that baggage, and still enjoy an exciting, funny, adventurous, sexy ride.
