2.0 out of 5 stars Reading this became laborious!!!!, February 6, 2014
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
This review is from: Invisible Killer: The Monster Behind the Mask (Paperback)
Where to begin? Editing.......or lack of. I have never seen a book that was published with so many errors. Not just in spelling but the redundancy and disjointed writing. I would read a page and try to understand what the scenario would be and off to another line of thought the writer would bound. Then a few pages letter the subject would be repeated and maybe a few more tidbits. This should have happened once but happened many times to the point I sighed and groaned in frustration! I really skimmed the last 1/3 or more of the book and still dont understand WHY her diary was photocopied and entered at all!

I am very very disappointed and never would have recognized I knew anything about editing until what not to do was demonstrated.
