"CAUTION. Proceed if you dare."

June 19, 2012  |  By HarrysonFjord

 |  Version: FBReader 0.12.10

Pros

NONE. Please see below.

Cons

Installer has no opt-out for the A/V tool AND a browser search add-on, closing the window will install them anyway.
Configured the path to my hard disk EBook folder. After closing app and reopening, it created IT'S OWN FOLDER in C:\EBOOKS.
Program immediately crashed upon opening epub file.
Uninstaller only deletes it's executable, leaving behind all other associated files/folders and shortcuts to make life more unbearable.

Summary

This must have been a pre-school project for the pimply-faced developer. AVOID!

"Light, fast, best formatting, customizable - Windows"

April 08, 2011  |  By cfredc

 |  Version: FBReader 0.12.10

Pros

Click the gear and a world of easy customability opens - fonts, colors, margins, etc.
Formatting shows more of what's in the epub than the more popular ereaders.
You can customize keystrokes to make the Spacebar cause PageDown.

Cons

All that great formatting is not transferred when you Select and Ctrl-C - too bad, but won't matter to most users.
It would be nice to have a two-page view.
No way to highlight or annotate text.

Summary

Set up so that when you click an epub in Windows Explorer, it opens in FBReader.

"Good E-Book Reader"

July 27, 2010  |  By cycle_mycle

 |  Version: FBReader 0.12.10

Pros

It's clean and has decent speed loading, reads many formats, easy to use.

Cons

I haven't experienced any thing other than good from using this software. I've tried other readers too, and so far FBReader is tops.

Summary

I like the looks, it's not a cheap looking software, I believe care has gone into its development. I also like the fact that it loads quickly and doesn't use a lot of resources. All in all I highly recommend this software.
