I wanted to get the Kindle version of this book so that I didn't have to have another book to sit on my bookshelf. The ebook is in htmlz format not mobi.
What is the big deal you ask?
Do you like to change the font size and font of the book? Because the book is of type .htmlz. The font face is fixed. The font that the book is rendered in is very difficult to read. All of the letters that hang below the base line are rendered very thin or not at all. Imagine trying to read a word where the tail of the 'y' or 'g' isn't displayed! It looks like someone at the publisher ran the book through an OCR machine.
About every 40 to 50th word the first letter is missing, only part of the character is rendered, or the character is split into two. Not sure what is going on here but it looks like the OCR software couldn't make out the 'T' or 'H' and split them into something like '| |'. Kind of tough to figure out that is supposed to be a 'H'.
I am going to ditch the digital version and get a used printed copies to read with my preteen child.
