1.0 out of 5 stars Full of typos, not worth a penny, let alone £6.99., 19 Mar 2011
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: The Pursuit of Love (Kindle Edition)
This brilliant book has been so carelessly converted to etext that the Kindle version is full of errors and will make you weep with frustration as you try to discern Mitford's prose through a haze of typos. This ebook is not of marketable quality and is definitely not worth paying£6.99 for. I suggest we should stick to old-fashioned paper books for now, until this has been sorted out.

I have to agree - a wonderful book spoiled by at least one mistake on every page. For me, returning to paper is less attractive as I like the large print on the Kindle. However, it certainly spoiled my enjoyment too!

I, too, have been exasperated by ill-edited character-recognition scans presented as kindle novels.
