3.0 out of 5 stars Kindle or Not?, 2 Sept. 2013
I would prefer to download a Kindle edition for this but it doesn't appear to be one despite there being one on the amazon website...with no price. Just wonder if Amazon could rectify this ambiguity.

1.0 out of 5 stars Misleading, 8 Feb. 2013
Please, Amazon drop the name "Kindle" from this product (and one on the TY range similar to it) since its completely incompatible with all the Kindle devices.

1.0 out of 5 stars Not impressed, 8 Dec. 2012
I've had my Kindle touch since August and can say I'm not that impressed. There's nothing wrong with the technology of the product just the range of items available through Amazon for it; time and again I look to see if I can download a book and yet again its not available.

Also some of the books that are available in a Kindle format are so badly formatted they are virtually illegible (and these are from well known publishers - Oxford University Press, Penguin, etc.). So Amazon please GET YOUR ACT TOGETHER! You've had some form of Kindle available for years now, its high time you dealt with these problems.

1.0 out of 5 stars Problems with Kindle Edition, 8 Dec. 2012
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Obviously there is nothing wrong with the play or this edition. However the Kindle format is useless. It display of the play text is confusing and jumbled with the notes throughout the play (I also had the same problem with a Kindle edition of Coriolanus). Therefore stick with the paperback until Amazon can get its act together and work this one out (N.B. becoming increasingly disillusioned with the Kindle)

2.0 out of 5 stars Too vague in many places, 27 Oct. 2011
While this course imparts a lot of useful vocabulary I found it skimmed over too quickly points of grammar (although there is a brief grammar summary at the end which is why I'm not giving it one star). If you want a course with just as much useful vocabularly, but with a greater emphasis on Gaelic grammar opt for Complete Gaelic.

1.0 out of 5 stars Just not worth buying yet., 20 Dec. 2010
I just don't get why everyone seems to be going nuts over the Kindle. I was considering buying one but as of yet the range of titles on offer just isn't worth the purchase price. Everytime I look to see if a title might be available, no luck. While there's nothing wrong with the technology, the manufacturers really should have struck some firm deals with major publishers before releasing it for sale.
