I switched over this to epub from my very own mobi bought from amazon. i feel the epub even reads a little bit higher.
If i may locate the individual that did the conversion to publication in this, i might like to ship them to the subject material. Such lazy paintings! Many typos, and undesirable ones at that. tousled hyperlinks and footnotes. I must have obtained the print edition.
It is a smart ebook although when you can stand those flaws. Very darkish, very funny.
