That said, the Kindle edition is an embarassment. The publisher rushed a part-time intern into a room with a scanner and an OCR program and made sure they clocked out on time. Maybe they should have thought about proof reading? Italicized words appear randomly throughhout the text, obviously not intentionally. Perhaps that's supposed to be a tribute to the author's first name? But the words that are simply mis-recognized by the OCR software are the worst: "faces" becomes "feces" tipping us off to the standard of quality the publisher had in mind for this edition. Come on you cheap bastards, just hire someone to proofread it before you throw it out there as a Kindle edition.
Since then, I've purchased and finished the entire book and loved it. I've recommended it to anyone who I think might enjoy it. While it is a deep read, with short chapters inspiring torrents of thought and discussion, I wouldn't caution anyone away from Calvino.
I love this book, it's become a constant travel companion, and I look forward to reading it again.
