This book captivated me from beginning to end. I thoroughly enjoyed the polar shift and the 'what might happen' that the author conceived. There is the usual problem though, with the typos. If I had bought this book as a paperback, I would be demanding my money back. I must hold the E-books to the same standard.
Location 385: It was better thon good, but David went back to perusing his pieces. Obvious it should be 'than'.
Loc 526: to keeping her from falling. 'to keep her from...'
Loc 592: Last year our birds our birds were a bit off. Delete one of the 'our birds'.
Loc 790: smacked squared 'smack square' One paragraph there that needs spacing.
Fix the spacing issue that occurs throughout the book.
Loc 1171: a wavery X on. 'a wavy X on'.
Loc 1701: chacking the. 'checking the'.
Loc 1971: Suss. A British word primarily. Since the story revolves around the CDC and Americans and Americans cities, would it not have been more appropriate to use 'sort' or other acceptable words?
Loc 2169: into undertended. Puzzled here...perhaps under-tended?
Loc 2354: have last. 'have lasted'.
Loc 2586: answering a cell phone in the middle of their pastiche. Puzzled. Nothing in the sentence or what follows pertains to art/styles.
Loc 2664: were wrong, even though a member of the heard. 'herd'.
Loc 2799 and elsewhere in the book: the use of warden to refer to the guards/CSO's/security. A warden is the head of a penitentiary, and the word is used to refer to a group of guards.
Loc 3072: raked and hand. 'raked a' or 'raked his'
There are 16 more errors, but you get the drift.
I say again, it is an excellent story. It's just unfortunate that the E-books aren't as carefully edited as the paperbacks. Had it have been, it would have been a 5 star from me.
