It's a shame you can't review the writing and the format separately. John Wyndham's writing is impeccable, well deserving of five stars. It's an incredible book that's well worth reading. However I brought the RosettaBooks into Film Kindle edition. The text was so riddled with typo's and grammatical errors it became painful; they completely ruined the book. The formatting was downright rubbish. At least once a page you'd see words that ran into each other. The fact that I'd paid close to a fiver for something so poorly executed just leaves me feeling robbed. It isn't a very long book, it would have taken someone a couple of hours at most to just proofread it and correct the errors, but no. So by all means buy the book, I doubt you'll regret it, but my advice would be to cut the Kindle Edition a very, very wide berth.
