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 --This text refers to an alternate Paperback edition.

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.

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.

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.

I purchased this book as a gift for a friend for whom the subject matter greatly interested him. He told me, when prompted, that he gave the book 5 Stars and throughly enjoyed it. It would be a welcome addition to his collection.
Hence this review is 3rd party or hearsay. Not having read this book myself and thus cannot give a personal review. Sorry.

The layout of the text is horrendous. I mean... this is Jacobean drama, yet all the lines are written as if in continuous paragraphs. Every character name is abbreviated and not set apart clearly from their lines. The scenes are not clearly differentiated either. The font is far too small. All in all very difficult to read. This edition is, in a word, horrendous.
