Beware Kindle version: terrible translation and formatting,
This review is from: Siddhartha (Kindle Edition)
This brief review is simply to warn would-be buyers of the Kindle version of Siddhartha. Although only 60 pence it is a waste of time and money.
The translation is amateurish and entirely ruins what is a beautiful and profound book (I have read the Penguin translation in paperback and would give that 4 or 5 star). Moreover, the formatting is terrible - sentences often finish halfway across the Kindle screen. A disappointment as I just got my Kindle and think it is an excellent device, but now am concerned about quality control. In summary, DO NOT BUY this Kindle version!

I am guessing the book has now been update as the Kindle version is now £6.49 and the sample I downloaded didn't seem to have any formatting issues. It also appears to be the official Penguin translation now. Can you confirm this?
