Kindle edition still dodgy,
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Scoop: A Novel About Journalists (Penguin Modern Classics) (Kindle Edition)
I was very pleased to find SCOOP available in Kindle once again, as I had to re-read it for a book club event and my old Penguin paperback had of course gone yellow and fallen to pieces. The Kindle edition was unavailable, due, apparently to 'technical issues' with the text. Its reappearance alas does not mean that these issues have been entirely resolved. Throughout the novel (I have so far read about 27% of it) the letters 'th' have been mis-transcribed as 'di'. Thus (dius) 'their' becomes 'diir', 'those' 'diose', 'together' 'togedier' and most amusingly, 'the', 'die'. You might put up with diis when die e-version was put togedier by endiusiasts and cost nodiing, but not when you've just paid Penguin dirough die nose, diank you very much.
