Whether or not you care for Jones' oddball prose, the Nook version of this book is not recommended because, frankly, it's a mess. (I use a first-generation Nook.) Margins are set so that letters disappear off the edges of the screen. Page breaks occur randomly, mid-paragraph. There are no marks for scene breaks, causing jarring, transitionless shifts. Stray characters appear between paragraphs. There's no table of contents, making navigation a pain (especially since this is a book where you really do need to pop back and re-read occasionally). Reading this book takes far more work than it ought.
Barnes & Noble does allow publishers to replace e-book files with corrected versions, and hopefully this publisher will do so soon, because as it is, the book is barely legible.

I love this book. The writing style is really interesting. Jones truly paints pictures with his words and the reader beomes immersed in the storyline and with the characters because the writing is so vivid. It's one of those books that you can't wait to finish because you want to go right back to page one and read it all over again, just so you can catch some of the little nuances you may have missed the first time. A great way to spend a rainy Sunday afternoon.Was this review helpful? Yes NoThank you for your feedback. Report this reviewThank you, this review has been flagged.
