Good, but no two-page view
This is a very good edition including annotations and videos for better understanding of the novel. But it seems to be specially designed for iPad. The publisher should optimize the viewing of the book on Mac. This can be simply done by enabling the two-page view, which is currently disabled for no good reason on Mac.
A delightful companion to Austen's masterpiece
