Fantastic series, buuuut... Kindle?,
This review is from: The Eye of the World (The Wheel of Time) (Kindle Edition)
I am a long time Jordan-ophile, I started it in the middle of high school, and have loved it since (I'm now a 3rd year uni student); it gets better with every read through, as there are just layers and layers to this, I've introduced this series to many people, and the vast majority are grateful for it. I made the jump to Amazon Kindle, and thought that my first book should be the first WoT book, as my copy fell apart from being read too much. Sadly it appears that every page has been photographed, and run through a text recognition program, and converted to Kindle. Unfortunately, this is not a perfect process, as words which are shaped alike can be confused, e.g. "stones" and "stories", meaning that you are sometimes left wondering what the hell its trying to say, and why noone at Amazon proof read the book. This therefore slows the flow of the book, which is sad, as you can really just sink into it. Other than that, would heartily recommend. Heres to hopimg the rest of Kindle isnt like this!

I'm glad i'm not the only person that noticed this. Thom is frequently converted to Thorn and some passages just make no sense at all. (BTW i have the paperback version as well as the kindle version)
Just to point out they have now removed the wheel of time from the kindle store. I hope they send me a replacement when they have finished rewriting it.
