Ive downloaded this version before and did not like it at all. There is nothing worse than buying 2 versions of the complete works of Shakespeare, finding each one equally unreadable, and then not being able to get your money back.


Here is an example of the type of formatting problems to expect in the version you linked:

Good my friends, If you have beard your general talk of Rome, and of his
Friends there,
It is lots to blanks,
My name hath touch'd your ears it is Menenius

versus

Good my friends,
If you have heard your general talk of Rome.
And of his friends there, it is lots to blanks,
My name hath touch'd your ears it is Menenius

if examples like this were few and far between, it wouldnt be a problem to sort it out...but when the entire rhythm of the play is disrupted, it gets pretty annoying.
