3.0 out of 5 stars Great book, but Kindle edition costs more and is full of errors, 6 April 2011
This review is from: Excalibur: A Novel of Arthur (The Warlord Chronicles Book 3) (Kindle Edition)
It's a great book, and would certainly get 5 stars from me if I had the paperback version. However, I am somewhat annoyed at the poor quality of the Kindle edition, and to make matters worse, at time of writing it's nearly 40% more expensive than the physical paperback! Admittedly there is no VAT on the paperback, but it's still inexcusable.

The Kindle edition has been sloppily produced via some optical character recognition software, and clearly has never passed under the eyes of a human before being released. Don't get me wrong, it's readable, but there are enough errors to break you from the flow of the story quite often. Errors like "AH" instead of "All", etc, as well as bizarre hyphenation where the physical book has words that cross the boundary between two lines.

So... a brilliant 5-star book, but for paying 40% more for an inferior version littered with errors that could be easily corrected by the publishers at minimal expense, I only give it 3 stars. I'm yet to come across a more poorly produced Kindle edition of a book.
