1.0 out of 5 stars Kindle Specific Comments, 28 May 2011
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Priestess of the White: Book 1 of the Age of the Five (Age of the Five Trilogy) (Kindle Edition)
Disclaimer: I'm reviewing the Kindle edition of the book here, and not the content of the book itself.

DO NOT buy this on Kindle. The formatting (or lack thereof) is atrocious. Admittedly, I should have tried a sample first, but knowing the author's work I didn't think that would be necessary. It is. There is NO indentation for speech of new paragraphs. There are no spaces betweens sections. Effectively, the text is just one long and continuous mess.

Given that Amazon don't seem to push updates to Kindle purchases, I guess the only way to see if the formatting is fixed in future is to periodically try a sample. In the meantime, stay clear.

It is. I bought the trilogy for my Kindle a couple of weeks ago and had no problems whatsoever regarding formatting/layout.
