Don't buy this for a Kindle!
on 28 February 2011
Note that this review is for the Kindle version ONLY, and relates only to the format. I've no opinion as to the merits of the translation, or the level of language required, because I'm about to commit the unforgivable sin of posting a review before reading the book.
The point of having a parallel text is surely so that you can cover up one page, and try as hard or as little as you feel like to understand the original before taking a look at the translation.
That's not possible with a Kindle edition - the English version follows at the end of the entire German text in each case, so you'll have to bookmark it in several places as you go along and skip backwards and forwards.
Maybe it's my fault - after all, how did I expect they were going to render parallel columns? - but feeling stupid doesn't make feeling disappointed any better.
