1.0 out of 5 stars Misprinting Madness, April 14, 2011

Verified Purchase(What's this?)
This review is from: Miles, Mutants and Microbes (Vorkosigan Saga) (Mass Market Paperback)
Normally I'm a big fan of Amazon.com when it comes to making purchases of almost any kind: they're reliable, fast, and the products that they deliver are generally in perfect shape when they arrive. I'm sad to say that this was a major exception to the rule: I purchased the mass market paperback edition of Miles, Mutants, and Microbes as a gift for a friend, only to have her discover as she began reading that it featured a massive misprint that put the second half of the final story right in the middle of the first, completely removing the last half of said first story and the beginning of the second, and printing the final story again in its entirety at the end. Worse still, this appears to be a problem not with one book, but with that whole printing run: I had that first copy returned and replaced, and the next copy had the exact same misprinting issue. The mass market paperback is NOT the edition you want if you're interested in reading this book. The next time I try to buy this book, I'm going to see if the hardcover is free of these issues.
