Fake "leather", tiny font annoying to the eys, major rip-off!
am 22. Juni 2016
I was very much looking forward to the arrival of this so called "ultimate collector’s item for fans", "gorgeous boxed set" of the "hand-holdable leather-cloth-bound editions of the first five novels" - only to be majorly disappointed! I felt ripped-off to be more exact. First of all, the books are not bound in leather or even leather-like cloth, but some flimsy, rubbery material that feels awful and fragile to the touch. Secondly, if calling the size of these books "hand-holdable" is a cheeky way to excuse their tiny size, then this is one of best marketing gimmicks I have fallen for in a long time! Make no mistake these books are so small that the thin paper and tiny font makes them incredibly difficult to read - more like a poor quality newspaper but probably printed in an even smaller and more tightly packed font of the print used by most newspapers. This is a joke of a "georgeous box set" that only real hardened fans of the author might accept and only then because it might look OK on your smallest size book shelf (one where you keep books smaller than the standard mini paperback sold at airports for last minute purchase. And only if you already have bought and read a proper sized paperback or hardback version of each of these poor quality "georgeous" books. There is no way you would want to make your eyes suffer the horror of reading these five volumes. This is NOT a collectible gift item. I would be ashamed to give this to anyone I care about, and will be returning it prompty. Definitely not worth the price and not worth the space on my bookshelves! A major, cheap, Chinese made, rip-off! Shame on you, Amazon, for allowing such misleading description of these books as i have quoted above.
