No link to the table of contents.
No notes or links to any within the text, which is rubbish as unless you have an encyclopaedic knowledge of the Regency period and its politics, classical mythology and Shakespeare (amongst other pools of learning) you will need to read this with access to the internet to decipher what you do not quite understand. Which will be a fair amount given that this is a 200 year old work. How can you be expected to read Don Juan without some guiding notes? - (October 2015, I found the notes at the end of the document but without a link to them within the body of the text means that to read them on a Kindle is one of the biggest pains I have ever come across. Unless of course you buy two Kindles and have the notes open on the other one, which ain't gonna happen really)
Byron's Don Juan is a great work of art and this particular edition by Penguin for Kindle appears to be a hastily cobbled together affair to make a few shekels. This is a shoddy presentation which should be given away for free.
The only saving grace is the introduction.
AVOID AT ALL COSTS!
This is the second Penguin classics transfer to Kindle that I have wasted my money on (the other being John Keats complete poems)
Save your money and get a free copy from Project Gutenberg.
The other students in my course who'd bought the same edition also had the problem, so it isn't just an issue of my copy. I can't identify this printing error anywhere in the main parts of the poem, and it did seem coherent, so for now I'll just hope I didn't miss out on anything else.
The larger pages are a real benefit to reading comfort, but the leaving out bits is really sort of worrying.
I would have liked notes to help me better understand the text. However the price was quite good.
However I am now feeling like I want to buy the York notes to better understand the book and I could have avoided that if it just had notes!
