3.0 out of 5 stars A good read spoiled., 21 Aug 2014
The story is obviously very good, but the presentation is not. Firstly there is a lot of american spelling which completely ruins the pleasure normally obtained, and then there is the punctuation whichis not up to scratch. Speech indicators in particular are badly handled so that it is sometimes difficult to decide which person has "spoken".

The story by Arnold Bennett is of course excellent but the problem lies with the reproduction. For some unaccountable reason there are occasional instances of Americal spelling, and some of the typesetting leaves something to be desired. But the oddest thing is that on page 169 and in another instance elsewhere the printing shrinks to a much smallerpoint size. Indicates a lack of care in the product.
