So, when I saw it available on Kindle, I thought it would be good to have this version as well (protect the original, easy to carry, all those reasons for which we buy Kindles..).
The book is just as good, if I were to just buy one book on Arras, this would still be it.
But come on Amazon, if you are converting books to Kindle, do it properly, there are a lot of mistakes in copying it over..a lot. Including for a chapter title, "Orce" rather than "Force".
If it wasn't for these, I would give it 5 stars....
