This book is riddled with errors. I could barely stand to read on page if it

There are too many errors in the book to make this an enjoyable read. That is a pity because this Collins is an enjoyable author.

This is a scanned document and is unreadable!

A simple spell check would fix most of the typos. If this is what Google does to books, I want no part of it. I was too busy deciphering the words to follow the story.

The copy downloaded to my Nook had a lot of repeat sections. I had to keep fast forwarding through the pages to find where I should actually be to continue with the story. I liked the story but was frustrated with the parts that were repeated sometimes 6 or 7 times per section.
