Page 303, he sells five bars of gold to Hassan. Hassan gives him $122,000, which would have been the right amount if he had sold ten gold bars. Sloppy editing and it was an error that referenced data on the same page.
It maybe true but at the same time,this also gives the impression that Malcomn is indeed an unreliable narrator and that whatever he states in the story should not be considered as 100% credible and accurate.It was more about the characterization of Malcomn's narration rather than editing.
Just finished the book, which I enjoyed. But, I couldn't figure how the math worked on the gold sale either. Went back several times. How could they miss this. What am I missing. 5 bars @ 10 ounces each, 50 ounces, discounted price $1,220/oz (page 299). Can only be $ 61,000, not $122,000 ( page 303). Book gets a little loopy at the end.
