I was curious about that myself - I have the paperback version and read it prior to the Kindle, and just noticed that the scene where Jamie beats Claire after she runs away is cut short in the Kindle version. Did they get complaints? I am really annoyed about it and am tempted to return the Kindle version and go back to the book.
I would like to hear from Kindle's leadership. Can the paying comsumer be assured that kindle products are unabridged from the paper version of ANY book. If there is any abridged literature being sold, wouldn't that be misrepresentation of the product? I am concerned that with the decline of bookstores and the printed word, we are being sold an ferior product in the Kindle versions of books.
i think it is. i feel cheated. i'm sure of it. i know when i read the paperback years ago, the ending made me start the book over immediately, the kindle version didn't end the same way, and leaves you wondering what the heck when dragonfly in amber starts
I read this discussion hours ago...and was beyond annoyed to think I just ordered a slightly censored Kindle version.
I am very relieved and delighted to tell you that my Kindle version of Outlander is NOT abbreviated in any way (at least regarding chapter 22) which is the chapter Jamie beats Claire. (please believe me. I checked the entire chapter word for word with my Outlander book).
There are 3 possibilities going on. #1. A very small group of people made such an huge issue out of the beating... (because they did not understand it)... that people started thinking "the beating" was far more severe than it was actually written in the story.... or.... #2. Some people got a defective Kindle download, and should ask for an exchange... or... #3. if you ordered an "Audio Version"..... Audio versions are always slightly abbreviated, unless they specifically say: Unabridged.
The kindle version says that it contains actual page numbers and I noticed while reading that I was on page 280 of 550. I'm confused. Isn't the look close to 900 pages long? Can anyone explain the discrepancy?
