Fantastic Story! Sept. 2 2013
By Adam Hobbins - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase
One of Shakespeare's greatest! The only flaw is a lack of a list of characters in this version as they can sometimes be difficult to keep track of.

A very bad digital edition of a great play. Dec 14 2014
By R. Mumma - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase
This is one of the poorest cheap Kindle editions of a Shakespeare play I've downloaded. The optical character recognition software that was used changed "full" to "fun" in a couple of places, "head" to "bead," and similar glaring errors. Shakespeare's language doesn't need these added complications; I feel especially sorry for any reader who might be approaching this great play for the first time with this substandard edition.
Formatted by a blind monkey June 30 2014
By Prospero Tempest - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
The formatting of this book is maddening. It's like it was cut and pasted from one incompatible program to another and then never proofed before printing. Text abruptly cuts off for no reason and is continued on next line. Also, stage directions are not bracketed or separated from text in any discernible way.

Observe this example from page 5:

BOATSWAIN: None that I more love than
myself. You are
counsellor. if you can command these elements
to
silence, and work the peace of the present, we
will not
hand a rope more. Use your authority; if you
cannot, give
thanks you have liv'd so long, and make yourself
ready
in your cabin for the mischance of the hour, if it
so
hap.-Cheerly, good hearts!-Out of our way, I say.
Exit

I mean, what the hell was that? I will probably use this book to start fires. I hope the editor gets shot.

Amazon automatically edits out the awkward spaces, so you can't even get the full picture of just how horribly bad this book is.
Nice Version Feb. 25 2014
By LA - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase
This is not my favorite Shakespeare play, but this version was nice and easy to read. Interestingly, this is possibly Shakespeare's only reference to the New World as he may have been inspired by the Sea Venture, a ship that crashed on Bermuda while heading to the New World. Look it up.
Shakespear's Last Play March 11 2013
By Dorothy Jones - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase
I think it is one of his best. Much of the story implies a farewell as Shakespeare planned to end his theatrical career. That aside, my favorite plays by Shakespeare are the "mystical" ones including Midsummer Night's Dream. His imagination is as alive and bright is this last play as any other.
