But, the author obviously didn't bother with a proof reader, as it is liberally included with typo's and glaring errors, such as bearly when barely was the right choice of word, and that is not the only one. Silly really, spoiling what is an excellent read but finding oneself looking for the errors.
Having not seen or read the paper version I cannot comment on it but, this is the first Kindle transfer I've seen where the layout is as disjointed as it is here with such huge paragraph breaks and chapter titles often at the bottom of a page rather than the top. But maybe that's how the paper version is.
Still, having ranted, it is a good read and looking forward to book two, which I have but haven't started yet.
More excellent reading.
So much so that my best friend and I are planning a weekend in London in the spring to go and hunt down some of these lesser known parts of London that are still in the City and will be doing a photo story based on the books.
Rather than just use the normal tourist routes, I would highly recommend that you read this book, plan a route and go off to explore London away from the normal packed places.
Looking forward to spring. Can't wait.
At times I felt that I knew some of the stories, Then I figured out the reason why!
For me, this issue lets down what could be a really good book.
A long book, doesn't necessarily mean a better book.
the streets covered by the book were all within walking distance of my place of work.
However there was a lot i didnt know so it was a very intresting read.
