Not good enough, Mr Kindle,
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Fair Stood the Wind for France (Penguin Modern Classics) (Kindle Edition)
I really enjoyed this novel. On a European train journey, I was actually wishing the journey was even longer to try and finish the book! Splendid evocation of Occupied and Vichy France. Nice balance between the British pilot's belief in his own 'immortality' and the absolute pious faith of Francoise the young besotted farm-girl.
In contrast to some other reviewers, the ending was moving and it's abruptness added impact - no further spoiler comments from me.
So why the two star rating? This review is of a product and that product is the Kindle version. It really is not good enough for Kindle to continue to produce a product littered with typos and transposition errors. Furthermore, the kindle version actually cost more than a hard copy. How can that be justified?
There was no other content than the bare text to justify the extra cost. Why are we being asked to pay more for an inferior product?
I strongly urge you to read this novel but buy the book NOT the Kindle version.
