Update to my previous 3-star rating (posted anonymously by mistake):
I'm about a quarter of the way through the book, and after a half-dozen obvious errors in the text, and more passages that look doubtful, I give up on this e-book. I'll look for a print edition. (Not the recent Modern Library edition though--their edition of Gibbon was worse than this e-book, though they've done good work on other books.)
It's a shame, because I'm really enjoying the book. Sterne's approach is odd, but quite successful so far. Any given page looks interminable, but every few pages the cumulative effect is that I laugh out loud. And as far as its place in literary history goes, it's so seminal the stuff is oozing out all over.
Other problems noted in previous review:
Title doesn't show correctly on my Nook. Book is DRM'd, so this can't be easily fixed.
