Serious Problem With Kindle Edition
on April 21, 2010
I am giving this book five stars though I have not finished it. It is clearly an excellent book.
However, the Kindle edition has a terrible problem. It is entirely in italics.
I have not had this problem with any other book.
It is not ALWAYS entirely in italics. If I go to certain chapters and then come away from them, suddenly the book is NOT all in italics.
I think this is probably the result of faulty display coding of some kind.
In any case, I have not been able to control this phenomenon, so that the book is USUALLY all in italics. Imagine reading page after page, all in italics. It strains your eyes far more than, say, reading on a non-Kindle computer.
I have tried this, by the way, on Kindle for PC as well as on my Kindle 2 and the same phenomenon exists, so it clearly has nothing to do with my Kindle 2.
I am contacting Amazon customer service about this, but I think it's only fair to alert fellow readers to the problem.
