The interface is simple and user-friendly. You can select the navigation method for your convenience and pick the background of the text. Many users prefer to choose the black colored theme with white letters. While there are several options on the menu, they all are signed and were created to make it easier to reach the text and pick the page or chapter you wanted to read.
