Product description

Review

John Webster's Charnel house tale... a Jacobean masterpiece... the characters of this flamboyant 17th-century tragedy of wild justice would be entirely recognisable to us today from kiss and tell tabloid stories. --Guardian

The formatting of the play is slightly odd. Many of the main characters names are missed off so the reader isn't always aware that Ludo's real name is Ludovico. This sounds trivial but as the play for bought for A Level English Lit, this is a significant issue. Due to the long names, I can understand this precaution when holding tablets vertically however surely this could at least be altered for Kindles that can be viewed horizontally (Kindle FIre). There are also a few typos.

The play is formatted in an easy to read format and benefits from being able to bookmark and note specific pas sages.

The worst edition of The White Devil ever! Completely incorrect script and wrong characters named, as well as random capitalisation and no line numbers. Generally awful, do not buy.

This is shockingly bad.

I got the printed edition, which is printed and published by Amazon.
They have made no effort whatsoever to produce an actual book, - just simply chosen a pretty cover design and then slapped the text in tiny print down one side of the large format pages.

There is none of the formatting that would help to actually read or study the play.
Completely unreadable and unusable.

This was advertised as 'the pages are clean, intact and the spine remains undamaged' Unfortunately this was not true - at least 20/25 pages had handwritten annotations in black biro, in some case extensively so, covering much of the page. There was also at least one instance of highlighter pen' If I had known there were annotations, I would have bought a different copy.

It's free, I know, but honestly, this is incredibly difficult to follow. The character names are indented with the speech and aren't bold or have a colon or anything, they're just there, in a shortened form (ie: Lodovico would be Lod.) right next to the text without any distinction.

It works I suppose, but I wouldn't recommend this if you're seriously interested in studying the text.
