3.0 out of 5 stars Not a good book to read on a Kindle, December 31, 2009
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
This review is from: Extremely Loud and Incredibly Close: A Novel (Kindle Edition)
My husband found this book to be brilliant after reading the paperback edition. Since I had just purchased my Kindle, I wanted to read it on my Kindle. Unfortunately, due to a large number of illustrations in the book, this is not a good read for a Kindle. I was very happy to be able to look up pages on the paperback to be sure of what I was seeing. The Kindle graphics are not quite up to this book yet. I think I lost a lot of the enjoyment of the book due to this fact.

Really? As most novels do not include pictures/illustrations, I found them pretty unnecessary. I also read this book on a kindle and pretty much flipped through the pictures. I use my imagination for that stuff.

Thank you so much for this info. I am so often disappointed when I download books on my Kindle to find that it's not really a good format for that particular selection.

I read it on my Kindle and loved it. You do not need illustrations when you have a vivid imagination!
