    Free, but not quality

    A very poor quality rendering of a really delightful telling of the Edda. The OCR system routinely mis-translated characters and generally shattered the layout of woodcuts throughout the text.

    This version should be corrected, or, pulled from distribution by Barnes & Noble -- it damages their brand to offer such material... even when free.
