2.0 out of 5 stars The book is missing 32 pages from the beginning!
Reviewed in the United Kingdom 🇬🇧 on November 3, 2017
The book appears to be in a good stay, however it has some sort of a print or book binding defect, because it starts from a page 33, mid sentence. That is quite a lot pages missing
