Kindle readers are fuming after an e-book malfunction on the new Neal Stephenson book “Reamde.”

Earlier this week Amazon wirelessly replaced the eBook version of "Reamde" because readers had complained about typos and errors in the original version.

But even more upsetting to some readers was the fact that, after the book was replaced, an e-mail went out advising that "Missing Content that have [sic] been corrected” - but without explaining what or where the missing content was. In addition, the act of replacement wiped out any highlights, bookmarks, or notes that readers had already made.

Some users vented their frustrations on the page for the “Reamde” e-book on Amazon's website, including one user who goes by fisherKing and lists his or her location as Brooklyn, New York.
