I have a couple of deluxe-edition Bibles given to me as confirmation gifts that see little use. As a compulsive underliner and annotator, I just can't bring myself to vandalize a leather-bound Bible with gilded parchment pages. This "pulp fiction" production of the King James translation, on the other hand, is just the ticket to guilt-free consumption for those of us who take "active" reading to the extreme. It's cheap, disposable and easily replaceable; it adds very little weight, takes even less space in my book bag. As for the translation, the King James is the only way to go for those of us take literature seriously and prize metaphor as the analog for apprehension of the non-verbal. For "accuracy" of translation, I'm still partial to the Revised Standard (New Revised, if need be) but have yet to find a working man's copy as serviceable as this one. (Warning: the print is quite petite.)

A bible is a bible except:

1. The letter size is so tiny (Times Roman 6 or 7 points) that you need a reading glasses. My other bible bought at amazon was in giant letter size, 16 points. So obviously you should check the letter size first before placing an order.

2. In paperback form; the pages are easy to tear.
If you want to buy it for someone else like a convert, I would recommend a more *readable* and durable copy.

3. The delivery time was decent; the book condition was new as in seller's comments.

Pros:
Only one: Price is reasonable.
Cons:
The smallest print of any larger Bible that I have ever seen.
Print too small to read!
The old saying "You get what you pay for!" is so true. Why waste your money on a small print large Bible? Spend a couple more dollars for a larger print Bible.

It's a good book for a nice price. I can keep this edition stowed in my car for a rainy day, and keep my nicer bible safe inside.

The language is rather lovely, and poetic, although portions of the book do appear to resort to excessive synopsis. The third and fourth chapters, in particular, are guilty of this, with the third being a drab list of rules and regulations presented without elaboration, in a sort of authorial filibuster, and the fourth being a litany of tedious revenge fantasies. Some of the later chapters are quite interesting, and there's a lovely romantic interlude, but the tendency towards authorial filibuster doesn't completely disappear.

Also, the main character is a bit inconsistent, sometimes appearing kind and loving, while other times wrathful and vengeful. This dichotomy could be an interesting plot device, but alas the book never goes into detail about why the disparity exists. We are simply left to wonder at it, or just figure "that's how it is". Frustrating.

The book does suffer a bit from uneven editing, as well. For instance, there's a fascinating tale about a golden bull statue, which is unaccountably buried in between two tedious and nearly identical descriptions of carpentry. What's the deal? I admit that editing such a large work can be trying, but surely such duplication should be easy to avoid!

Overall, though, it's not bad. I am rather disappointed that the publishers chose to bundle the inferior and hackneyed sequel with the groundbreaking and innovative original, however. Really, if the sequel can't stand on its own merits, why include it at all?
