The Worst Edition in the World,
This review is from: The Worst Journey In The World (Paperback)
I'm not going to review 'The Worst Journey', which is of course wonderful.
Instead I want to warn you off buying the Pimlico 2003 edition, which is shockingly poor quality. The introductory sections are riddled with typos, including misspellings of proper names. The back pages began to fall out while I was reading the opening sections - and I didn't mistreat the book at all. By the time I got to the end the pages were falling out like polar explorer's toe-nails.
Cherry deserves better than this. I hope that Sara Wheeler, who edited it and wrote an informative introduction, will demand Pimlico hire a proof-reader before any reprints.
