Doesn't work with my HP3630. Amazon says it does.

5.0 out of 5 stars Recommended Kindle edition, 2 Jan. 2016
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Probably the best option for Kindle users. This is the classic Louise and Aylmer Maude translation - the same as in my Everyman hardback. It seems to avoid the typographic and layout problems that are annoying in so many Kindle books. I notice that it has 'enhanced typesetting'. Perhaps that is the reason. My only complaint is that there are no maps. That's a big advantage of the Everyman print edition, though maps are always illegible in Kindle editions. This Collins version doesn't have Everyman's handy dates lists either, but the essential character list is included.

Compulsive. Hard to put down. The text flows so smoothly and naturally, that it's hard to believe it took eight years to write.

1.0 out of 5 stars Poorly transcribed for KIndle, 23 April 2015
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
It's an excellent book, but the Kindle transcription is very poor. There are hundreds of misprints and the introduction is formatted so that it can only be read at a single small font size.

5.0 out of 5 stars Brilliant!, 3 April 2015

This review is from: The Miniaturist (Kindle Edition)
Utterly gripping. Vivid characters. A sort of cross between Girl with a Pearl Earring and Jane Eyre.

2.0 out of 5 stars Amazon's description misrepresents this autobiography, 28 Mar. 2015
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
If your main interest is the Bosnian war, then this book isn't for you. If on the other hand you are fascinated by Martin Bell and feel the need to find out more about him and his television colleagues, then this book is ideal.

2.0 out of 5 stars Text looks really good. Even so, 6 Jan. 2015
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Text looks really good. Even so, it's a disappointment. I've tried all kinds of setting variations for the lighting but it always gives me eye strain - something my old basic Kindle never did.

5.0 out of 5 stars great film, 16 Dec. 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Two Days, One Night (Amazon Video)
An apparently simple story, beautifully told - keeps you thinking about it days afterwards.
