Numbers must bewilder the author
on December 6, 2011
Good story, well paced. However, I found the lack of research when it comes to numbers very annoying. A 12 story hotel/casino of 49,000 sq ft (p. 86, loc. 1540)? With 25,000 employees (loc. 1520)? Another hotel described as having 2,000 rooms in 100,000 sq ft (loc. 1952)? A little common sense, please - that's 50 sq ft per room with no hallways, lobby or anything! Must be like the TARDIS - bigger on the inside. A very picky complaint, true, but the serious lack of association with reality is a sign of sloppiness. That said, it's well worth the 99 cents if you skip the dimensional silliness.
