3.0 out of 5 stars Good story but..., August 18, 2011
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
This review is from: Far Away Home (Kindle Edition)
I loved this story. The author's characters are well fleshed-out. However, I found that the errors made me crazy. Maybe it is just the kindle version that needs some additional editing, but having errors like, pronouns misused, naming people incorrectly, and lack of punctuation just bothers me. I found I had to re-read parts to figure out what the heck was going on. I did enjoy the book if my grousing doesn't turn anyone off!

That's usually due to the transcription to Kindle. I see it all the time.

It is a pain when reading through a book and having to call out "typo" at the best of times and wondering how someone could have missed the error. However, I know that the transcription of these books can cause some problems so, as a new Kindle user, I figure I can live with it. I love my Kindle! :-)

Yes I find errors to be annoying at times when reading but I try to not let it take away from my enjoyment of a book. I find the human brain quite capable of reading and completely comprehending most of the errors we come across in these books. Therefore, unless it is truly horrendous writing I am willing to give an author my comments based on story-line. I do however, agree that more attention needs to be paid to detail and editing.

Soon after I posted this review, I received a new digital copy of the story. The errors had bothered others and someone was tasked with fixing the electronic version. I liked the story enough that now that it is corrected, I just might read it again! I love my Kindle, too!

Your issues are the very ones that drive me up a wall. I should have read this review before I ordered!

thanks for your review. That kind of thing drives me absolutely crazy and makes it difficult for me to focus on the story itself.
