    Garbled crap

    Unreadable due to the poorly scanned nature of this book. Lots of odd special characters embedded through out the text. Don't even bother downloading this.

    bad digital conversion

    I was looking forward to reading Gibbons. I downloaded two books (the only two I could find) of the series. Often, with the free books, it depends on how the digital conversion process was done whether the book makes sense. In this case, there were too many nonsense letters and words throughout the text. It made it difficult to follow. I put one book in my archive to save space, the other I am still decoding.

    An excellent edition.

    Although it's best to read Gibbon entire this abridgment is the next best thing for the busy student or the lazy reader. Because so much new information about the formation of Islam and events from Byzantine history have been discovered in the two hundred years since Gibbon wrote his masterwork not much is missed anyway from the later half of the book. A pleasure.

    Distortion

    I have just read this book and have come to the conclusion that Gibbon was, without doubt, one of the most anti-catholic authors in history. His prominence as a so-called neutral observer of historical events can only be attributed to the England of his time-ready-made to adopt an anti-papist tone. His name provided legitimacy to all those generations who shared that view. It is of zero solace to me that a continuing number of apologists merely state he just got it wrong, which he did. What a deformed intellect.

    Excellent, authoritative read

    Had it been unabridged, I would have given it five stars. But, still, the best single work in my 60+ collection. Lots of lessons for us (meaning Americans) today...
