I bought this to read on my kindle as the formatting is fantastic, much much more readable than ordinary text. I deduct a star though because of how difficult it was to get my kindle to recognise this book as Chinese. I have installed a chinese dictionary but because the metadata of this book claimed it was only in English, my Kindle would not lookup the Chinese characters.
To anyone else interested in being able to lookup chinese definitions here is what you need to do:
1. Install Calibre on your computer. This is free software to help manage ebooks and quite useful to have anyway.
2. Add the book into your Calibre library. If you have already downloaded the book to your Kindle like I did, you can plug in your kindle, and when Calibre detects this you can select the correct book and add to library from the right click menu.
3. Now select the library button on the ribbon and then select the book and click the edit metadata button on the ribbon.
4. Change the language to Chinese.
5. Then send the book (back) to the Kindle. You can select the book and click send to device from the right click menu.
(This will make a new copy of the book - you may want to delete the original after you test that the new one works properly)
(Note: This is all perfectly legal. The DRM remains intact, the metadata just tells the Kindle which dictionary to use.
If you have a chinese dictionary you should now be able to select a word and see its definition. I use the free CC-CEDICT dictionary which is Chinese-English. If you do use a free dictionary, note that you should copy the .mobi file into a dictionaries folder and that should be inside the documents folder. If you have installed the dictionary correctly it should be in the list under Menu > Settings > Dictionaries.
