Additionally, near the end of the book, the page color switches from white with black text to black with white and sometimes red, and even sometimes green text. This may hinder readers who require white-on-black printing to be able to read the text. I have neither vision nor reading disabilities, but even I struggled to read the green-on-black text with ease. It is only a few pages, but no one wants to have to stop reading right at the climax due to poor color choices.
All things considered, I would recommend this edition highly to those who are revisiting the book, but I advise against it for first-time readers due to the often disorienting text and colors.
