Great story - spoiled by poor 'proof reading'
on 19 July 2016
I downloaded this in December 2013 but only recently (July 2016) got around to reading it. I really enjoyed the story and found it a great holiday read BUT there are so many typing and spelling mistakes that I spent so much time 'highlighting' these that they became a distraction. A good proof reader is a must for this author - hopefully he has addressed this since my purchase and download. So why did I give this 5 stars if it was so poorly 'proof read'? Simply because I use a standard approach to assessment with 'star ratings' based on awarding one star for a 'yes' to each of the following questions: 1. Did I enjoy the story? 2. Did it hold my attention throughout? 3. Did I get to know the characters and care what happened to them? 4. Was I sorry that the story finished - did I want to read more? and 5. Would I buy another book from this author? The answer to each of those is 'yes' and consequently it gets my 5 stars because this author really is a brilliant 'story teller' and I look forward to reading more of his books (Just downloaded the 'follow up' to this book)
