I searched though the forum and didn't see this particular problem.

I was searching for a book on my Home page and my Kindle completely froze, I had to do a hard reset to get it to do anything, and even then it took doing it twice for it to work.

The weird thing is I've done searches for other books- no problem, it took a long time, but it didn't freeze. But with this book I've tried it 3 times and it happens every time.

Is there a solution to this problem?

Edit: The name of the book is Something Wicked.

The book is obviously evil. Actually I've never heard of that. Very strange.

Have you tried deleting and re-downloading it? The file may be corrupted or the book may have been badly formatted.

I had the same problem while indexing a book. Deleted it with Calibre and converted it mobi to mobi. (or with another than Calibre). If it's an Amazonbook ; delete it from the Kindle and call Amazon.

Yes I had a book that just caused problems every time I tried to read it - it was a freebie so no big deal. I ended up deleting it from the device and haven't had the problem with anything else since. Amazon will refund you I'm sure if you bought the book from them and you can't get it to work.
