Poor quality ebook
on 7 March 2013
Titus Groan is a great read. Peake's descriptions are evocative, enchanting, disturbing and downright weird. The characters are peculiar and the plot weaves around the cold stone tower of Gormenghast almost organically.
It being a book with an archaic and erudite use of vocabulary, it was enormously frustrating that it contained so many errors where the electronic scanning of the book had not been proof-read and corrected: often I couldn't tell if a word was new to me or just randomly created by the scanning software.
I will go on to read the rest of the trilogy but will be buying paper copies.
