Badly formatted2By shanghaijimWhen deciding which version of a classic book in the public domain to choose, you often have to decide between free and badly formatted or paying for niceties like indented paragraphs and curly quotes. Many of us used to the Internet will just accept blank lines between paragraphs instead of first line indents, and don't care for proper open and close quotation marks. But when you're reading a book, these things start to matter, because they make the journey of your eye over the text easier and more pleasurable. And then there's having clear separation between chapters, not having one chapter run into the next with only a barely emphasized heading to mark them. I've seen free editions of classics with formatting that isn't painful to the eye. This edition of Huck Finn is not one of them. If you can spare four dollars, buy the Tor edition.
