Ridiculous waste of money
on June 23, 2011
(original rating: 1 star) I ordered this thinking it would be a fun exercise w/my Spanish classes. I love the novel Don Quijote, but it's simply too difficult for high school students. This seemed like a fantastic way to bridge the gap, and I thought it might even encourage some of them to read the novel (in English).
Ha - I couldn't read it on my Kindle 3, but I didn't worry too much about it. I just sent it to my PC so it would be bigger. I'd be using it via PC for class anyway. WRONG! It is still completely illegible. Even using full screen and one page (it defaults to two), the squares are so tiny that the writing is not even readable. There is no way to increase font size because it is a comic book.
Thank goodness I didn't spend more than $1 on this, but I am just thoroughly disappointed!
Edited to add: (new rating 3 stars) I have heard from both Amazon and Mr. Garcia, and a favorable outcome has been reached. I very much appreciate their help in fixing the problem! While the book is still not workable as a Kindle edition, Mr. Garcia has made it available in a PDF that does work on my PC. Thank you very much!
