Great book, horrible print
22 January 2019
There's nothing I can write about 1984 that hasn't been said thousands of times before; it's a great book that everyone needs to read.
However, my copy of the book came deeply flawed throughout most of part 2 (135 pages) with the text repeatedly alternating between being pressed too far out (forcing you to hold either the centre or outside of the pages to read) or too far in (forcing you to crack the spine to even read them!). On a few pages the text is pressed so far into the inside margin that numbered grey blocks run are printed up the outside edges.
This may not sound like a big deal but it quickly becomes an annoyance and takes away from the enjoyment of reading a otherwise great book.
