4.0 out of 5 stars Good book, BAD typos and grammar??, 7 Jan. 2012
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: A Storm of Swords: Part 1 Steel and Snow (Reissue) (A Song of Ice and Fire, Book 3) (Paperback)
I've read every book in this series so far and have really enjoyed it. With very likable characters and characters that I thought where pure evil turning into favorites. And sometimes I felt like Joey from Friends when he was reading "little women" and I wanted to put the book in the freezer because I thought my big favorites had died. These books really take you with them. BUT and this is the only reason I'm rating this a 4 star and not 5. I get the impression that these books where not proofread. I don't know if anyone else has noticed but there seem to be massive printing mistakes in the books. Paragraphs and words being hyphenated where they really shouldn't be. Sentences like.."has still to learn yet.." and "pouring cups of wine in silver cups" also there is talk of a WIDOW in on sentence only to make a WINDOW out of her in the next. The list goes on and on. I tried to overlook this in the first book but they became so glaringly annoying in the rest that I just have to have a good moan about it. This cannot be acceptable for books published by a big publishing house like Harper Voyager.
