A disappointment. Although with a nice introduction by Susan Cooper, the text is completely missing all its italics. Otherwise, it's quite well formatted, and the text seems very clean - it even has the correct u with macron character. There don't seem to be any extras except for the introduction - no annotations, no illustrations. This would be a good plain (if overpriced) edition, if it wasn't for the missing italics.
It it had the Italics, I'd have given this edition three stars for the nice formatting and clean text.
If you're looking for a Kindle edition of Kim, don't just search for "Kim". That only finds a few of the many editions. Search for "Kim Kipling" (without the quotes) to find the many editions available. And also look for my review "Kindle Edition Choice is critical" for a review of all the available UK editions as of January 2012. I can't give a live link to the mass review here, but its web address is: http://www.amazon.co.uk/review/R352D63HO69Y03/
