Review: Death from the Skies!

Arachne Jericho has reviewed Death from the Skies! by Philip Plait on Tor.com. This is the 1st review I have seen that includes both the paper book and the Kindle edition. The Kindle specific part is mostly about layout, which is a problem with many ebooks and reviewing such issues may get the publishers to make improvements. Based on the review, this is a better than average transfer to an ebook. The Kindle version is currently unavailable (in for repairs).

There are also Adobe, LIT, MOBI and eReader versions (but MOBI is only available from OverDrive, not from MobiPocket).

It's also available for the Sony Reader.

it would be nice if the Sony, MS Reader, & eReader editions were also reviewed. There's more to eBook readers then just the Kindle.

There is nothing stopping you from writing a review and adding it to the comments.

Are you going to give me the money to purchase this eBook in every possible format? That also means that in order to get a Kindle edition you'll also have to get me a Kindle as well.

You were criticising the original reviewer for not doing precisely that very thing, Jon . Naturally one can only review what one has access to.
