2.0 out of 5 stars Kindle Edition Needs Better Editing. 25 April 2013
By E. Jenkins - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase
Apparently I am cursed. When I discovered there was a new book on Heritage Apples, I got super excited! I couldn't find it available locally, so I decided to try the digital version and purchased the Kindle edition.

Unfortunately, it is missing chunks from its digital pages! There are sentence fragments, misplaced photographs and even words spliced together as though someone accidentally highlighted random things and hit delete... Ugh.

If digital books really want to stand a chance, they need to be just as carefully edited as bound books!

The content of the book seemed pretty decent, but I couldn't get passed my irritation at purchasing a fragmented book (hence the two stars). There are color photos, and examples of apple varieties (though not as many as I'd hoped to find, considering there are over 7,500 recognized apple varieties in existence) and the text is well written when you can understand it. I will likely end up purchasing the bound book, but if I do so I will be ordering it through my local bookstore as a sort of lame, grumpy, self-righteous, rebellion.

If I were to purchase the book bound and whole, I would probably give it four stars due to the beautiful layout, aesthetic and content, but I would withhold that final star due to the limited information on more varieties. The author does mention lots of varieties, but many of them are simply mentioned by name and date, with no information on the fruit/tree itself. I was truly hoping there would be more information on the individual varieties - perhaps a final appendix of variety traits at the end of the book; it seems likely that anyone picking up a book titled "Heritage Apples" in the gardening section is going to be looking for something similar.
4.0 out of 5 stars A really nice read, if you are into apples. 4 Oct. 2014

A really nice read, if you are into apples. A bit of the historical past of apples within US and Canada. As I am from the UK its a slightly different slat on the attitudes towards apples. A good read - thanks from gb-online.co.uk
