Why I gave up reading this e book
on 31 March 2011
I have sent the message below to Kindle support and I place it here to warn potential buyers, this e book costs £8.99, I am Manchester born and know the buildings and thoroughfares intimately, I would recommend this book but not the Kindle edition. I was enjoying reading the details of history and architecture, I was so disappointed with the book's disorganised layout. Believe me fellow bibliophiles it cannot be read in it's present format.
This e book is unreadable I have persevered and read 12% but I have had to give up. The problem is the book, through no fault of the author, is out of sync and literally all over the place. Reading an interesting and informative account of the Peterloo massacre, half way through it ends abruptly, mid an unfinished sentence and then continues with another unconnected subject itself halfway through and thus intelligible, several page turns later it returns to Peterloo by completing the unfinished sentence and carries on. This does not happen once or twice but several times up to the point where I could not continue. I could enjoy this book, so I want a refund and I will purchase the printed version. I repeat it is not possible to read this Kindle book it is as if the book were cut into random pieces thrown in the air and reassembled regardless of page or content.
