Kindle version: Super content marred by poor quality presentation
12 January 2014
It is a shame to mark this as only 2 stars and I suspect if I had bought the paper version of the book I wouldn't have felt so disappointed by it. The story of Mandela's life is depicted in a way which makes it suitable and engaging for children. However, the extremely poor quality of the text on the Kindle meant that almost every page had large parts of the text which were unreadable due to words not being laid out correctly on the page. On some pages parts of one side of the text were imposed over the top of the other side of the page and it proved impossible to work out what was actually written on either. On other pages there were words missing, as if the whole Kindle book was merely a scanned copy of the original and nobody had even checked whether the whole page was visible on the finished version. Incredibly poor editing (or lack of) - I suggest anyone who wishes to buy this book gets a hard copy to avoid similar disappointment.
