Informative but shoddy conversion to e-book
on 18 February 2013
Having read 'The Gathering Storm', and noted a few typographical and typesetting errors I had hope that 'Their Finest Hour' would have benefitted from a closer proof-reading exercise by either the publisher or Amazon. My hopes were dashed.
The quality of the writing, the story told and the insight given to anyone interested in the political and structural workings of Government at this crucial time of the World War remains good; however, what would have otherwise been a smooth, enjoyable read through of the events were continually foiled by the need to determine specific words, phrases and emphases as a result of errors both in spelling and typographical translation.
Having not read the paper version of this book, I cannot know for sure, but I speculate that neither Mr Churchill, nor the original publisher would have allowed the manuscript into public circulation without a closer scrutiny of its quality.
Now I really hope Volume 3 is subject to a magnifying glass! Must do better Amazon.
