The program is not bad but the price is atrocious.

Interface not completely intuitive. I don't like the text going directly to the edge of the screen (can't seem to change this). Text-to-speech?
In Microsoft's Reader all I have to do is double-click the LIT file and the ebook opens up. With this I have to open the file, then make sure to change the "codepage" if it's not on the right one, then I have to IMPORT the file, then I have to go to the list of imported files and open the file. Come on, I should just have to open a LIT file in one step. I don't want to convert the file and have another copy. Also, it doesn't display any cover page jpg's. It's not that complicated, especially for a program that costs this much.

I like the text interface but I can't justify the cost of this program when I can find free programs that are even better in many respects.

Program crashes a way too often. Can't read the ebooks whitch I converted on the same computer with an earlier version of the ICE Book Reader... says: buy a full version. Takes too many computer resources.
And... last but not least - quite similar program - Rudenko Book Reader is freeware.

Despite reasonable efforts, I was unable to get a .lit book to open with a white background. I don't understand why this program doesn't have a white background anyway.. I mean, books are white, paper is white, why shouldn't an ebook be white? Support for ebooks is extremely crude. Interface is crude and non-intutive. This program has a LONG way to go before I'd consider using it on a regular basis.

This program does do what it says, but I have found it quite useless. The scrolling feature is not as smooth as I'd like it to be, and it also does not handle spacing in many documents well at all. Often documents will come out displayed without carridge returns, perhaps there is an option to fix this, but I could not find it. Personally, I feel that with the invention of the mouse scroll wheel, we don't need smooth scrolling book readers. But of course, until they actually fix this program's problems, the ratings will unfortunately stay in the 1-2 star range
