The Exiles

A good few years ago I read all the Australian books and loved the mix of fiction and true events that were so well written, I learned many things about the founding of Australia.
I decided this year I would love to re read them, and having a kindle, which I find easier to read now, chose them on kindle.
The first book was fine, but having read the second and third books, I began to question the transfer from the written word to kindle, the text had been lazily written without due care and attention and I felt the stories were missing something, but could not remember exactly what!! So, I bought the original book of the Exiles to compare it. Not only was the text different, but with the first book, HALF of it had not been transcribed. The kindle edition stopped at page 248 and there were a further 299 pages left unwritten. Considering the kindle editions are more expensive than the books, I found this unbelievable.
So, I have ordered the books I can and will continue to do so until I have read them all again. It will be interesting to see just how many pages from the other books are not even there on kindle as I have five of them on kindle that I have read , I will ,however, not be buying any more of them on Kindle, that is for sure.
