1.0 out of 5 stars Unacceptable, Amazon., February 3, 2011
This review is from: King Henry IV Part 2 (Samizdat Edition with Active Table of Contents and Line Numbers) (Kindle Edition)
This is a review of the so-called *Kindle edition* of Henry IV.2. I was directed to this edition by clicking on the Kindle link on the Folger paperback edition but this is certainly *not* a Kindle version of the Folger edition. Amazon - when I click for the Kindle edition, I want a Kindle edition of *that book*, not a *similar* book with the same title. I want (and will pay for) Folger's typesetting, editing, front matter and text notes - none of which are included here. In addition the typography of this electronic version is the worst I've ever seen. Every Kindle owner is used to occasional layout and typograhic quirks but this is literally unreadable. The font switches between Times Roman and Courier seemingly at random. Anyone who *is* looking for an ebook of Henry IV.2 would be better served with one of the many free versions on the web. Please fix this, Amazon. Do not serve this up as a "Kindle edition" of a book that is not. Better yet, drop this piece of ill-formated trash from you store entirely.

Sadly, this is what you have to deal with when shopping for public domain works, in print or electronic versions--a few excellent editions from reputable publishers buried in a list of on-demand printings of texts pulled from the Internet with no human oversight. It's important to know that you can call Amazon customer service and ask them to refund a Kindle purchase because it's unreadable.
