3.0 out of 5 stars The book is great, the Kindle edition a travesty, filled with errors, August 23, 2010
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
This review is from: A Place of Safety: A Chief Inspector Barnaby Novel (Chief Inspector Barnaby Novels Book 6) (Kindle Edition)
I am delighted to discover Caroline Graham. She's a wonderful writer -- her characters become real the instant you meet them. Don't know how she does it. And Sergeant Troy is hilarious.

However -- shame on Amazon and Kindle for publishing this poorly-scanned and never-proofread Kindle edition. There are hundreds of clear scanning errors -- "die" for "the", "Arn" for "Ann", and many many more -- including dropped punctuation all over the place. It's extremely distracting to read a book that's this badly presented, and I'm hesitant to try any other of Caroline Graham's Kindle titles for fear they'll be the same.

This edition should be fixed -- and not by just running a spell-check operation on it, it needs a human being to see the errors -- or our money should be refunded. Really, it's outrageous -- no paper book could ever be published like this.
