Review for Kindle edition of Kim: B003K1590M:
No cover. No Italics. Curly quotes. Dashes are Dashes for the most part, but oddly spaced - often a space only on one side of the dash. Blue text! Paragraphs are wrapped nicely, and first line indented. First paragraph in a chapter is also indented, but does at least start with some emphasis of the first word. But some paragraphs are not indented just on the first line, but on all lines of the paragraph - very peculiar. And some of the paragraph breaks are incorrect.
No Table of contents in Menu, but hyperlinked TOC is in the text at the start of the book - with page numbers!
This version isn't based on the same text as so many of the other versions of Kim on Amazon, but seems to be a new electronic version of a text somewhere between the 1901 text and the 1937 text. It has only a few typos and has British spelling.
An interesting version - but possibly only to me, with my close interest in the text.
As a reading edition it's not good. The relatively good text is let down by poor formatting throughout, and all the italics in the text are lost.
There are better, cheaper editions available.
