Not what it says it is, 29 Feb 2012
This review relates to the Kindle version of Jason and the Golden Fleece: I say this in case anyone is unaware of Amazon's bad habit of aggregating the reviews for all versions of a book, and sometimes for different translations. This is unhelpful if you are interested in finding the best translation or in how well a book has been digitised for Kindle. This particular case is more serious, as it specifically claims to be the Oxford World's Classics version translated by Richard Hunter, but it is NOT. Neither the translator nor OUP are mentioned, the introduction is quite different, and judging by the content it is a very much older translation, probably out of copyright. I realised in time to have it removed for a refund, but buyer beware! It appears that the real Oxford World's Classics version is not available on Kindle.
