very poorly edited Kindle edition,
This review is from: Holiday (Kindle Edition)
My review is mostly about the Kindle edition. I am appalled by the poor editing and proofreading that went into this edition. There are typing errors on almost every page, making the reading very difficult at times. You constantly have to second guess what the original word might have been.
The editor should be ashamed!
As for the novel itself, it is still a relatively interesting account of how a marriage broke up and how the two partners are affected by it. But the story has not aged well. Some of the details and scenes are still very convincing, but on the whole the story failed to grip me.
If you want to read this novel, get the printed version. Hopefully, that was edited properly.

Unfortunately the paperback version is just as bad, e.g. p.88: 'holdiays'; p.120 'Arthur had tought him...' I have complained direct to the publisher who are investigating.
