You can try the good old ebook reader bundled with Calibre. It's a multiplatform software, so it's available for other systems too, not just for Windows. Besides being a great application (Calibre itself is the swiss army knife for all things related to ebooks), it's also free and open-source.

Amazon and Apple have their own DRM schemes and you won't be able to create an ereader that opens books from their stores.

Have you tried using Calibre as an ebook reading app. It works well in many different environments and accepts many ebook formats. I buy lots of books in epub, from Kobo and others, and I never had any problem reading them with Calibre (though I prefer my small Kobo ebook reader). Trying it would at least check whether there is a problem with the ebook. ...

You don't mention what device you are using, but on a Galaxy Note 10.1 or higher you can use the split window function to run two different epub readers and compare them side to side if that is your objective.
