1.0 out of 5 stars Transcribed by a Robot., 24 Oct 2011
This review is from: The Roaring Girl (Paperback)
Do not buy this play if you want to read it. As stupid as this sounds, this play was created by some lazy people who scanned the original manuscript into a piece of text recognition software and then didn't bother to proofread it - they got a computer program to do that too. As a result, one is left with a completely incomprehensible version of the script: for example, one line reads
"S. Oaxr. Myfonnncluckf fpfr then (hall run with him Allinonepafture."
If you can understand this, then by all means buy this book.
The 'excerpt' provided on the product page is from the book they scanned - not the book you will be buying. I would recommend The Roaring Girl (New Mermaids) - despite being a little more expensive, it is actually readable.
