Great book let down by poor formatting
on 20 February 2014
Planets is a whistle-stop tour of the planets of the solar system. Dava Sobel's prose is a pleasure to read. The narratives she spins for each planet, while sometimes a bit silly, are always compelling.
The Kindle edition of this book, however, is poorly converted. Quotations are badly formatted and the illustrations are completely missing. If you want to read this book and enjoy it as it was meant to be read, buy the print edition.
(The print edition, which I bought when I have up in the Kindle edition, deserves four stars.)
