Arles not Aries,
This review is from: The Yellow House: Van Gogh, Gauguin, and Nine Turbulent Weeks in Arles (Kindle Edition)
This is not a great choice for the Kindle as much of the narrative of the lives of Gauguin and Van Gogh relates to the paintings they did together and the poor quality of the Kindle versions of these really detracts from Martin Gayford's wonderful research. It would be nice if you had a web link to colour photos of the paintings and at least one could refer to them on line. The illustrations are only captioned in list of illustrations on the contents page and again, this is really annoying as it is not easy to zoom back and forth between pages like you can in a book.
The second problem with this Kindle edition is that the name of the location of the Yellow House, 'Arles', is spelt correctly only 140 times of the 250 times it is mentioned. In 110 cases it is spelt 'Aries'. Somehow when the book was scanned in the l became i and a spell checker didn't pick up the mistake which is really irritating and I would think, really simple to fix.
This is one book that is definitely a book - not a kindle.
