I did notice and am wondering what can be done about it. I thought it was strange the font was so large at first but figured since the books are more for youth, it mimicked the book's actual paper layout. At location 3051-60 There was a drastic change and it is making me angry. I feel that Amazon should fix the file and replace the files to those of us who have bought them.
Here is my solution. If the size is not to your liking and you are reading on a Kindle, click the Aa (located to the right of the space bar). It will open up the font options and you can make the size smaller or larger. I didn't know about this until I finished the Hunger Games. Hope this helps until Amazon gets the publisher to fix this.
Has anyone else had problems with whole pages just being blank. I ran into this multiple times in all 3 books of the trilogy. I was able to get the story even without them but it was very annoying especially in the last book when so much was going on.
I had the same issue. I just adjusted the font size as I was reading. I also reported it as a formatting issue by clicking the link at the bottom of the product page. If others do that as well, maybe an updated version will come out. If so, Amazon will email owners with instructions on how to download the newest version (for those who are unaware).
Font size seems like it's 2 sizes too big on my Kindle 3. Paging backwards randomly makes the font change to standard size. I can't believe Amazon let me buy an ebook that has been broken since July 2011. Luckily, Amazon lets you return a kindle book within 7 days of purchase.
I was informed by customer service that a request was given to the publisher for fixing. That those people who had purchased it with the errors would be contacted for the updated version to be downloaded. I have not yet been contacted by anyone. My best guess is it had not been fixed yet.
@ Monkey's mom, I am still trying to decide if it is worth it. I get mixed comments. Some have problems and some seem to not have any. The price has gone up to 18 vs 13 though! Any advice Amazon? Are you going to get the problem fixed?
The sample of the triolo does the same font issue. Even after adjusting the font size to the smallest when I normally read on the 3rd or 4th size if finally felt right. After just going from page to page it would change again. Ill her this after I read a few other books but will advlod this version unless its fixes.
Can't believe that you did not know about this. That's why you get a manual and all that. However, that is really beside the point. The key is that one should not be chasing the Aa button at all. We spent our money expecting that the "Kindle / Publisher" people deliver a professional product. I imagine that the nook version also vacuums.
I don't know when it came out, but CS just told me this book has been updated. You can go to http://amazon.com/manageyourkindle to get it. Just change the "View" filter at the top of the page from "All Items" to show only the books that have updates available and from there you can download the new version.
On the plus side, the magical font size problem seems to be fixed and each chapter header now includes the little graphics from the print edition. On the down side, the entire ebook is now double spaced much like the print edition, which looks pretty goofy on a kindle and means you'll need to advance the page roughly every 7 seconds. Sometimes you just can't win.
