Kindle version still has major problems...
on 9 November 2012
This review only concerns the Kindle formatting of the book - not the book itself. Their are still major problems with the Kindle edition. It renders on your Kindle with no chapter breaks at all, it's just one long stream of consciousness. This is fine up to a point but then even the paragraph breaks seem to peter out and it's just one long unending block of text right up until your Kindle reports 94 per cent read - then, for the first time what seems to be a chapter break occurs!
Page over and continue reading and it's obvious that there's a big chunk of missing text. I won't go into detail as it would be a real spoiler but suffice it to say that one second the central character discovers someone close to him is in peril and then suddenly the story rambles on with the crisis obviously having been resolved without another mention! I was in Waterstones the other day, checked the paper book on the shelf and sure enough there is a huge chunk of missing text...
I emailed Amazon with zero response. Other, older reviews suggested the issue had been sorted out (they also mention big chunks of repetition) so I did as they suggested, deleted my copy off my kindle and downloaded it again (you don't get charged a second time) but the issue remains exactly the same!
Come on Amazon, use your influence with the publishers and get this sorted out. Happens all too often with Kindle downloads. Lazy, lazy conversions from the printed page! Kindle users are not second class customers!
