I have read the complete novel, and enjoyed it very much. However, this instance of the book was badly ocr'ed from its source and no one bothered to proofread before release. Half the table of contents is missing, the story proper begins mid-sentence about halfway through the first chapter, and there are an extraordinary number of blank pages where none should be. This is not "excellent" or "awesome", it is a crapjob that disrespects both the source material and the audience. Skip it, find an ebook from someone who knew what they were doing and cared enough to make sure that they included the entire book. One star only because you're not allowed to choose none.
