Great Story - Shame about the proofing,
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: War Brides (Kindle Edition)
This is a rattling good story, following the lives of several women, thrown together by war. Having heard my mother's stories of wartime hardships, I found it very interesting and absorbing. What spoiled the book for me was the appalling proofing: words missing, parts of words missing, parts of sentences missing. At times it was so bad that it was difficult to make out what it should have been and it got worse the further into the book you read. It was as if the person given this novel to check gave it only a cursory look at the beginning and got more apathetic as the pages went by. Not good enough. I'm sure the author will be pretty cross that her work is being sold in this poor state.

I thoroughly agree with the above review! I have never read a book with so many mistakes ! Why was this book not checked before going to print? Pity, because the story was good though at times a bit rambling.

was going to purchase this book, but I too have been put off by the comments about poor editing etc. Shame, but there are plenty more books to read!
