Product Description

The color Kindle edition of The Atlantic is now available on the Kindle Reading App for your iPad, iPhone and Android devices. Download issues at no extra cost from Archived Items.

For more than 150 years, The Atlantic has been the premier magazine for coverage and analysis of current events, international affairs, and culture. A great deal has changed since Ralph Waldo Emerson, Oliver Wendell Holmes, Henry Wadsworth Longfellow, James Russell Lowell, and Harriet Beecher Stowe planned the first issue in 1857. But since its inception, The Atlantic has given voice to some of the most provocative ideas of its time, from Henry David Thoreau's blunt naturalism to Martin Luther King's calls for justice. Today, The Atlantic's readership numbers 1.5 million, and the magazine maintains an unwavering commitment to publishing authors whose ideas help move society forward.

The Kindle edition of The Atlantic contains most articles and some images found in the print edition. For your convenience, issues are auto-delivered wirelessly to your reading device at the same time subscribers receive paper versions in their mailboxes.

In this modern era when so many "journalists" simply regurgitate sound bites, The Atlantic is a throw back to a time when serious issues were treated in a serious manner. I find it refreshing to find issues examined in detail and read journalists who develop a proper argument.

Great magazine. Original. Impossible not to see illuminating new perspectives after reading. A problem I've noticed is that on paperwhite, it doesn't display names of the writers. If that could be sorted, it would reap greater rewards. (Read on kindle paperwhite)

The long form stories in The Atlantic put UK publications to shame. They are very readable, well researched and less gushing (or cynical) than many UK magazines

If you are looking for something between the British/American political punditry magazines and the more higher brow literary reviews, this is perfect.

HASH(0x91db9c18) out of 5 stars Bad License Agreements 19 April 2012
By rptdc - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition
I just subscribed to my first Kindle magazine subscription (the Atlantic monthly). This is more of Amazon/Kindle issue however should be made known to anyone purchasing Kindle magazine subscriptions. Kindle magazine subscriptions can only be read on one device or software installation. This means if you select it to be read on your Kindle device you may not read it on your PC, Mac, iBook, iPhone or any other electronic device. This significantly reduces the versatility in reading your purchased material.

I'm sure I will be criticized for providing a negative review in the Atlantic magazine product area, but please note I did give the magazine review four stars

HASH(0x91db9c6c) out of 5 stars Better now 26 Nov. 2010
By Amazon Customer - Published on Amazon.com

The illustrations are now included in the Kindle edition, and they've stopped cutting the questions out of Goldberg's advice column, so now the Atlantic is really worth the price.

HASH(0x91f240c0) out of 5 stars All The Text, None Of The Illustrations 23 Dec. 2007
By Brandon Ross - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition
I love The Atlantic, so I was ecstatic when I saw it on the Kindle list.

Overall, I'm disappointed. All the text is there, but no illustrations, graphics, or charts. One of my favorite sections is Primary Sources, filled with interesting charts and maps. For some reason, NONE of these make it to the Kindle. Nothing but text. I guess it sounds immature to say, "where are all the pictures!?" But I certainly miss them, and the content is not the same without them.

But again, it is nice to have some form of The Atlantic available. I hope the illustrations are eventually included.

HASH(0x91d7609c) out of 5 stars Sloppy conversion mars reading enjoyment 12 Jan. 2011
By Ms. Parky - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition
I was a print subscriber for ~20 years and have subscribed to the Kindle version since 1/11. Here's an updated (downgraded) review of the Kindle product, based on an email I sent to The Atlantic.

The Kindle edition of this excellent magazine is marred by numerous conversion errors. For example, here are the errors I detected in a single read through just one of the articles (William Powers' dispatch on body surfing in Liberia) in the July/August 2012 issue:

The subtitle for this article was mispunctuated and miscapitalized, with a period rather than a comma after the first clause. Elsewhere in the article, "one" was substituted where "once" was clearly intended. A whole line of text was missing: these sentences "The first gigantic wave slammed me into a sandbar. I limped back to the beach and lay on my back in the sand" appeared as "The first gigantic limped back to the beach and lay on my back in the sand" on my Kindle. That's a lot of mistakes to catch in a casual perusal of only 1085 words, and it marred the experience of reading a well-written, intriguing dispatch.

There are many other, similar errors in this current issue, along with most other Kindle editions of The Atlantic. I don't think it's too much to expect that Amazon's document conversions be checked for accuracy before being released to paying subscribers. Checking for lost text ("wave slammed me into a sandbar. I") by comparing the number of words in an article before and after conversion requires only the most rudimentary code. Selling such a flawed product is not fair to your authors or to the reputation of The Atlantic, and makes me fear that Amazon's growing dominance in the eBook market will further erode editorial standards everywhere.

At $2.39/issue, I'm paying as much for the truncated electronic version of the magazine as I used to pay (~1980-1999) for the throroughly edited, complete print edition, which, of course, came out 12 times/year. This is one industry that progress is not improving

HASH(0x91d76180) out of 5 stars Incomplete? 14 Sept. 2008
By Catherine Michael - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition
Since I don't get the paper edition anymore, I've been wondering how complete the Kindle edition is. I didn't really expect graphics, since most other Kindle periodicals don't have them or leave most of them out, but I was shocked when the latest issue of Atlantic in the Kindle edition had a list of the contents of the Election Special, but not the Special itself. Bummer.
