This review is from: The Legend of Zelda and Philosophy: I Link Therefore I Am (Popular Culture and Philosophy) (Paperback)
I was considering buying this book, but when I read the "Look Inside" preview, I became a little wary of it. In the very first chapter, the author incorrectly calls "Outset Island" by the name "Outcast Island". And since it's used repeatedly, I know it's not a typo. If you're going to write a book on the philosophical aspects of a well-loved video game series, you should at least get the names correct. I gave it two stars for poor fact checking and editing, but I'm a huge Zelda fan, so I still may end up buying it anyway, if only to see how many more errors the authors make!

Perhaps the author was making a reference to the philosophy behind Outset Island, intending it to BE an Outcast Island?

Highly unlikely since the author gets the spellings wrong of other places/people in the book as well. Plus the glaring fact that the term "outcast" does not fit Outset Island at all.

Don't write a review unless you have read the book at least half way.
