HASH(0x9b88fdec) out of 5 stars Formatted by a blind monkey June 30 2014
By Prospero Tempest - Published on
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
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
in your cabin for the mischance of the hour, if it
hap.-Cheerly, good hearts!-Out of our way, I say.

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.

HASH(0x9b7e2474) out of 5 stars Fantastic Story! Sept. 2 2013

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.

HASH(0x9b6939f0) out of 5 stars A very bad digital edition of a great play. Dec 14 2014
By R. Mumma - Published on
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.

Obviously the play is an A+ one of Shakespeare's best, what I'm rating here as "It's okay" or 3 this version, as it doesn't have the lines numbered in the script as many versions do, so it is difficult to come back to it and find a line, specially if you want to quote something in class, or if you're using this version for any kind of research or as a source. If you're just purchasing it for the sake of reading it … it's a great version…and a cheap one.
HASH(0x9b677aec) out of 5 stars Tempest is good! March 6 2013

Can't go wrong with a free Shakespeare book. The one is simple to read and just has the play if that is what you are looking for. If you like to read what someone else thinks about the play you just read then this may not be for you. If you just enjoy reading a good play then throw it on the Kindle and read a couple times.
