Dead is Dead

I could not believe that a book with so many grammatical, spelling and editing errors would be offered for sale! It is horrendous! It was a cheap book, but I still paid good money for it. This book gives ebooks a very bad name!

    UNEDITED NIGHTMARE

    The complete lack of editing overshadowed the plot line. I liked the author's concept of this book, but not the book, itself. Very poorly written.

    I will not be reading any more Smashwords books, as the four I recently read (by four different authors) were all rather lame stories, and all appeared not to have been edited at all.

    Terrible!!!!

    I made less grammer mistakes in first grade. Doesn't anyone proofread anymore? Sometimes I did not even know what they meant to say. Really ruined the story. Typos etc.

    Proof reading nightmare

    Story line is good and worth reading BUT proof reader must have been on vacation or perhaps did not know English ! Terrible, mistakes everywhere . Definately not worth paying for - if it's free, great!

    Typos and missing words

    Yes, i am a "grammar nazi". Couldnt stand to read a few pages. The summary sounded interesting, but not enough to keep reading through the typos.
