I did a 14-day free trial of The Guardian and was riveted to nearly all the articles. As an American, I enjoy reading news from a foreign perspective. Unlike so many of the UK papers, The Guardian is fair and mostly unbiased, but it does have a liberal sensibility, but that is refreshing when so many of the UK papers are homophobic and obsessed with religion and the C of E. A recent essay on the Falkland Islands conflict was one of the best things I have read lately about why Britain still defends the tiny South Atlantic archipelago. Most articles give both sides of the story: Tory and Labour. You will not find much Royal Family gossip or glitzy show-biz coverage (there's plenty of that in the Fleet Street tabloids), but the Guardian's news coverage, editorials and reporting are all top-notch. The Guardian is what the New York Times used to be 20 years ago: intelligent, informed, and enlightening. This is Britain's best and brightest newspaper. I just wish I could afford to subscribe regularly.

I, too, was excited when I read that there was a Kindle edition of the Guardian and I snapped it up.It was fantastic; a great read, but then I read the reviews on the UK amazon page saying things like "lots of photographs" , "as good as the printed version" while meanwhile I'm staring at just text. As I said, it's a great read, but the experiece would be considerably enhanced if we got the same fully formatted edition here in Spain.

I'd been waiting a long time for The Guardian and The Observer to be available. That time has been very well spent producing superb versions of the papers for Kindle. It's wonderful to switch on the Kindle and have the papers waiting, and the reading experience is as good as the printed version. Lots of photographs also included, and all at a very good price. I can find no faults, it's all been brilliantly done. Very highly recommended. Thank you so much for putting the papers on Kindle.

I have used The Guardian as a prime source of European and UK news for over 40 years here in Australia. I used to have air mail copies sent then have used their home page as a news source. Excited when I got a KINDLE for Christmas and have subscribed to the 14 day trial. Its a good condensation of the paper and I am enjoying it. However the cost is so EXPENSIVE at $18.00 a month.

Its not the full paper and I understand this but I will want a lot more for my money than I getting now in the form of content. I can have the actual newspaper delivered (via Australia Post) for $235.00 a year and the KINDLE edition is $216.00 a year....!!! Not very good value at all.

I get more from the web site at no cost.

FIVE STARS for quality content (what little there is)

ONE STAR for value!!!

I subscribed to this half expecting it to be full of British celebrity gossip about celebrities whose names I don't even know. Instead I was pleasantly surprised by the quality of the writing, and the depth of some of the reporting. (If you are looking for articles that are two paragraphs and out, don't bother with the Guardian.)

I am an American but I presently get my news from the Guardian and the Financial Times, both British papers. Both are written at a higher level of intelligence than any American paper I know about (including the New York Times, which I have dropped).

It all goes back to wanting to know what is REALLY going on. I find this publication (I read the Sunday edition), an opportunity to know what is
going on in the UK and Europe through an English language newspaper that does not appear to be connected to U.S. newspapers. It is
very informative, and gives me an 'outsider's view' of what is going on, both at home and abroad.

One of the Best Newspapers in the world today - the quest for a truthful unbiased reporting on news that affect the common good of the majority of people affected... either locally.... or nationally is getting impossible to find. The Guardian provides that....... It is sad to go to another country for world news about my own country.

This is a general comment, directed at not just the Guardian/Observer subscription, but pretty much ALL of the similar periodicals available on the Kindle.

Publishers and Amazon take NOTE!

My family are all avid readers, and would be only too happy to be able to subscribe to publications such as this ... on the day that publishers decide to include the FULL edition of the publication, and not some faded look-alike posing as the real thing!

This means, newspapers should have the illustrations (I understand they may not look great on the Kindle, that's okay), the crosswords, the Sudoku and other puzzles. We've had cheap scanners for 30 years, how hard could this be (not to mention that these guys have all this stuff in digital form anyway).

Until that day, you can all watch your print-issue subscriptions die out, and your electronic subscriptions continue to come in at a relative trickle. Solve the problem, and make a whole load of "new" money. This is not complicated!

Amazon, where are you? You have a great outlet for this stuff, now you just need decent content! Who can justify $10 or $20 per month for crappy content?? This is crazy.
