Interestingly, the title was a re-release from something published in 2008. Not knowing if this could possibly have anything to do with the problem (which seems unlikely), I can’t help commenting that it felt at times like the writer’s first language is something other than English. There were wrong tenses, misused words, missing words, extra words – you name it.
The story itself was very enjoyable, by an author whose writing I greatly enjoy and admire. And yet, sadly, I am likely never to read the tale again for all the annoyances. Too bad I can’t go into my Kindle Fire and fix the issues. Wouldn’t that be nice?
As for the names of story and author, I’ll keep those to myself. Additionally, I’ll cross my fingers to never find something so botched again. Now I’m going to read this several times before posting and try to make sure I don’t make any of the same mistakes!
