I keep reading it as "Kindle Kloud Reader". Gah.

Anyway. Read a couple of chapters this afternoon. It works pretty well, overall.

As noted elsewhere by many others, there's no page-turn animation. I know it's possible to do such a thing in a HTML5 application on the iPad, the booki.sh reader does a nice fast sliding animation -- it slides the new page in over the old.

This takes a little getting-used-to, it's surprising how much one's brain is wired to expect something more than an instant screen redraw with the new text appearing immediately.

The one criticism I will make of it as it stands is that the offline mode does not appear to work, or at least it doesn't for me. It tries to cache the application, there's a little message at the bottom of the Library screen indicating that it is trying to do so, which is eventually replaced with an error.

If that can be made to work reliably, then they'll be well on their way to having a quite usable alternative to the native application, should Apple try to play silly-buggers later.
