4.0 out of 5 stars Excellent Kindle book marred by the most atrocious typesetting, 4 Mar 2012
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Completely Unexpected Tales: Tales of the Unexpected and More Tales of the Unexpected: "Tales of the Unexpected" and "More Tales of the Unexpected" (Kindle Edition)
If you like Roald Dahl, you'll know what to er... expect. This collection brings together many of his best stories, and in describing them, there is nothing that I can add to the other reviews posted here.

What I have to draw attention to, however, is the truly appalling typesetting. The book contains one error after another, making some sentences quite difficult to read. There is one whole chunk (in my reading so far!) of several pages of text that seems to have been cut and pasted into the wrong place. I am accustomed to errors in Kindle books- they do not appear to be typeset and proof-read to the same standard as printed books- but this one is absolutely atrocious. Perhaps Amazon need to take this matter up with the publishers, who set the price, as this is a very amateurish production, which should not be marketed as a full-price book by a supposedly professional company.
