This is a good read, but if you're a purist do yourself a favour and pay for a version that hasn't been tampered with!

Yes, I know this version is free to download and maybe one shouldn't have high expectations, but whose bright idea was it to “correct” the author's spellings, presumably in order to appeal to American readers. All I can say is SHAME, SHAME ON YOU!! whoever you are.
For my own part whenever I read a book by an American author I don’t expect or want to see spellings changed just to suit a particular audience. Such tampering with the original text in my view can never be justified. There are a few grammatical “corrections” too. The one that sticks in my mind is “write him” instead of write to him.
Still, it is rather amusing that despite someone's best efforts a few of the original standard non-American spellings, as written by the author, have managed to slip through.
Apart from that this is a good read, but if you're a purist do yourself a favour and pay for a version that hasn't been tampered with!
