3.0 out of 5 stars Good for free, but had I paid..., 28 April 2011
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: The Adventures of Sherlock Holmes (Kindle Edition)
I love Sherlock Holmes, so a free edition on my Kindle seemed too good to be true.

Sadly there were formatting issues that ruined my enjoyment.

The British pound sign (£) for example, did not survive the conversion and was replaced by meaningless characters and values and given this happened frequently it ruined the flow of Conan Doyle's writing.

Yes, it's free. But it's a Kindle version of a published classic that has stood the test of time. It's demeaning to see classics reproduced in shoddy fashion like this.

I agree with the comments here. It is very distracting to see all the gobbledy gook instead of a simple £ sign

I totally agree. I came here to post something similar and see that others have been bothered by this too.

Thought it may have been a corrupted download. Obviously not!.
