No longer clueless
on September 16, 2011
Am I utterly clueless? I assumed that the Kennedy interviews on tape would be what I would hear. Instead, a disembodied voice, sounding very digitally generated, is reading the words Jackie has spoken on tape..Why aren't I listening to the original tapes? It is a stunning let down. I would happily have paid more for the goods.
I have called Kindle and they were quick to cancel my Kindle edition of this book. I found that the only way to get the original tapes was to buy the hard copy, which at about $33 is a good deal. However, one reason i treasure my Kindle so much is because at 82, I almost always need to enlarge the print and I am sure the hard copy will be too difficult to read. But, I WILL have the tapes, the originals, so that's a trade-off I'm willing to make.
In this age of high tech, I do not understand why Kindle isn't able to do this directly, with no hard copy involved, with, of course, an increase in the Kindle price. So, in spite of the excellent service I received, and as much as i would like to, i can't improve on the three star rating I gave this Kindle book in the first place. It simply falls short, for whatever reason.
All this being said, Kindle does get points for their customer service. They are almost up there with Apple, the one by which all others are measured.
