All of the endless discussion about ebooks has probably bored you as much as it has me. I love codici, and I spend enough time staring at a computer screen without doing it for my reading as well.
Another argument against ebooks is the horrific "cover" design that many of them seem to be blighted by. I know that the fact that an ebook is a non-physical object means that there's no need to concentrate on the packaging, but for fuck's sake, have you seen some of these things?
Some believe Ford Madox Ford's original title was 'The Saddest Story'. In fact, it was 'The Good, but Short and Fat Soldier'. And I love the way they couldn't even be bothered including the author's surname.
Hey, there's a room, there's a view. What more do you fucking well want?
Plot Summary: A wrongful trial; an escape to riches; vengeance; redemption; some wet leaves.
Possibly one of the ugliest 'covers' ever. You've got to love the font that makes it look like a cheap-arse DVD rather than an OVID.
Fortunately, volume two uses the same cover. And if there's one thing readers of ebooks really need, it's having big books broken up into parts. After all, those Kindles only hold 7 pages.
Not quite the vibe Gorky was going for, I suspect. But cheap-arse clipart is never inappropriate!
