Top critical review
it's alright, but with some problems.

Being a digital book on a kindle is convinent, however the pages are all roughly medium quality scans. Each "page" of the book in it's "normal" view is a picture of the page that takes up about 60% of the kindle fire's screen when held vertically, when held horisontally the image is less than half the size of the screen. Either way the image is far too small to read without double clicking the page to change to direct image view where you can zoom in and out. Once you've zoomed in enough to be able to read the page you have to constantly move the page around the screen to see the whole page and the pictures of monsters and such are blurry with no real "happy medium" between readable and clear pictures. then you can exit out of the particular page, turn the page and repeat, for every single page in the book, pretty much offsetting all convinence of having a digital book. This leads to a lot of "Rotate the kindle, turn the page, double tap the image, rotate the kindle, read while constantly repositioning the page, exit, and repeat." The kindle can display pdf's fairly well, certainly not as well as it does the standard ebook meant specifically for the kindle, but at least decently. The diablo 3 strategy guide however is more a collection of picture scans than either a pdf or ebook. The guide has a picture of a table of contents, however none of the chapters listed on the toc are links, and while the page numbers are correct, the kindle lists the guide as having 360 "locations". So while the auction house is listed on page 424, the location is actually 340, making the table of contents more of just a rough hint at where to start looking for any particular page, but still requiring a fair ammount of guessing close then flipping pages back and forth untill you actually find the page you wanted. In all it has all of the same content as the printed version for half the price and less than half of the convinence. In the end I usually end up just going online to find answers to any particular questions i have as it is just far easier. All in all i would strongly suggest either passing completely, or paying the extra $10 for the physical book.
