Comedy of errors,
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: To Say Nothing of the Dog (S.F. MASTERWORKS) (Paperback)
I felt compelled to add another review (my first negative Amazon review) to warn people about two things:
1) The English characters in the Victorian era speak as though American. UK readers (and all others with any kind of linguistic awareness) may take issue with English characters from our current era saying things like 'go get' as opposed to 'go and get', let alone for characters from Victorian England speaking like this.
2) The editorial standard is poor, with two examples being: a) opening quote marks placed where there should be closing quote marks,all because for some reason an extra space crept in, and b) a character called 'Verity' being called 'Verily' half-way through this book.
The above may seem like small issues, and some people won't care, but they (and the like) marred my enjoyment of this book.
As for the story - the other reviews cover that. Suffice it to say the plot was ok and I wasn't amused by the 'comedy'. Read Lady Windemere's Fan if you want comedy of errors.
