Usual LP standard but difficult to navigate on Kindle version
on 17 October 2013
This is ok - but seems to lack some detail usually found in the non-electronic versions of LP Books and is extremely difficult to navigate because the 'real' contents page is someway into the book - the first contents page is just an overview. When you press the contents icon it takes you to that first contents. So you need to remember the 'position number' of the real contents page. Also the search function is terrible - if for example you search 'Boston' it brings up every mention of Boston in the order mentioned rather than the primary section for Boston first. So it is basically unusable.
Overall very disappointed. Bought this because I thought it would be lighter than travelling with a real book, but now I think I'm going to have to buy the real book as well. Maybe if there is a non-kindle electronic version (iBooks version or something) that would be better. I'm using it through Kindle for iPad and it's only the second time I've downloaded a book through the Kindle app so maybe these are problems endemic to that platform - the navigational system seems better suited to fictional books.
