2.0 out of 5 stars A Kindle Balloon, 17 Feb. 2011
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: The Moon's a Balloon (Kindle Edition)
This, as widely described, is a very engaging, very human biography. The book is fully reviewed elsewhere. This is a review of the Kindle version, and how disappointing that the publishers are prepared to put forward an edition for which they would be disowned by their mothers, had it been published on paper. The proof reading is terrible, inexcusable. Footnotes appear at the end of each chapter but you cannot flick to them and back to text. It's very sloppy. I'm not saying don't read it - please do, it's great, but buy the paperback (cheaper, of course, because of VAT), or be prepared to be very, very tolerant. I find reading a Kindle very easy and enjoyable, but I resent paying top wack for sloppiness. I feel insulted.
