Great books but Kindle version is full of errors.,
This review is from: A Game of Thrones: The Story Continues Books 1-4: A Game of Thrones, A Clash of Kings, A Storm of Swords, A Feast for Crows (A Song of Ice and Fire) (Kindle Edition)
I'm loving the books (although only about halfway through) but with the £19.99 kindle version I've found, as at least one other person has said, lots of typos and mistakes. Mainly there are missed out full stops, but there are also lots of wrong words being left in which means sentences make no sense. Whoever proofread this seems to have just run it through a spellchecker and not actually stopped to check if the words are correct.
I wouldn't say don't buy it on a kindle - the books are so huge it's a lot easier in this format and £19.99 isn't a bad price (although at the moment you can buy all of the paperbacks for about the same amount, even less), but it concerns me that kindle books may mean lesser-quality books. Just because you are buying something in a digital format and it arrives quick and easy it doesn't mean less effort should have been put into creating the product in the first place.

It's not only the kindle books that are full of typos. I have the paperback version of the books and it's appalling how many typos and wrong words left that mean sentences make no sense are left. Missed full stops, missed inverted commas, two words stuck together with no space, grammar mistakes... Has no one reviewed these books? None of the ones I've bought are first edition, so I don't understand why these mistakes are still there.
