This means that for reference purposes it's near enough useless: clicking through 400-odd pages on a Kindle with each page updating is far from practical, and the search function does not discriminate between chapter titles or text.
OK, at 77p purchasing this book wasn't the most terrible mistake I've ever made purchase-wise, but it was really annoying nonetheless, and was 77p I could have spent on chocolate.
On this page there is also advertised an ebook with a cover that proclaims "Chapman's Homer" but which according to the blurb is another modern translation by Griffiths.
Does Amazon really not grasp the idea that the same book can exist in different translations? And that it might be important to let the reader know which one they are actually selling?

Only a third of the way through the Illiad and I've skipped at least a third of that, hope the Odyssey is more entertaining.Published on 27 April 2013 by LimerickLes
Only 3 stars as it is the poetic version as opposed the penguin classics standard English language version. Still a great read.Published on 1 Dec. 2012 by Skyweaver
Very poor description of this book, wanted a story version, but got a poetry version, not made clear in listing, and not worth sending back, what a waste of money.Published on 26 July 2012 by srednim
The quality of recording, the brilliance of the acting and the delight of the translation and editing make this an excellent product. Read morePublished on 1 May 2012 by Annett
