It's rare to find an excellently formatted public domain Kindle book, but this one is a breath of fresh air. Curly quotes, not inch marks. Curly apostrophes, not foot marks. Justified paragraphs. Everything nicely laid out. A joy to read.

It also has lots of old illustrations, by 4 artists, a welcome feature. Unfortunately, those illustrations are all tiny. I'm reading it on a Paperwhite, but these are so small they must be small on even the lowest resolution ebook reader. Enlarging them only makes them blurry. Note to the publisher: size your pictures for the Kindle DX, and Amazon will automatically and nicely resize them correctly for each Kindle model that it is downloaded to. For examples of how it looks, see my restored Thornton W. Burgess Kindle titles.

With just that one change -- bigger, higher resolution illustrations -- this would be one of the best public domain Kindle titles I've seen. Until then, though, it's still excellent.

This tale of a man and his discovery of his own humanity is timeless. The illustrations are colorful and cheerful in contrast to the darkness if the story. Just delightful.

Stay away. This particular Kindle edition has an error, which you can read in the Kindle preview. I didn't go any further. It reads: "Once upon a time, of all the good days in the year, on Christmas Eve the old Scrooge sat busy in his counting-house... ." "the old Scrooge"? Wrong.
