Ruined by spelling errors, not a faithful reproduction of the original text
on 7 December 2017
At first I was so pleased to download this onto my Kindle for free as it is my favourite book and I've read it hundreds of times -- but unfortunately whoever translated this version to the Amazon Classics Edition did not take care to make sure it was the original text.
For example, Bingley declaring that he doesn't know "a more awful object than Darcy" (in the man's presence!!!) when it should have been "a more aweful object" (a completely different meaning to "awful"), and Mrs Bennet and Kitty mentioning "Pulvis Lodge" rather than "Purvis Lodge". These are just two examples I could think of off the top of my head -- but there were a few other instances where I thought "hold on, I'm pretty sure the original doesn't quite say that." It ruined it for me.
You are better off spending your money on an actual faithful reproduction of the original text, rather than a version which didn't even take the necessary care required to transcribe a famous classic accurately. Perhaps there is a free e-book version of this book that is an accurate version, but if so, this is not it.
