Great story, great dialogue/vocabulary, needs better editing!
Reviewed in the United States on January 13, 2019
My son enjoys the stories in this series and his vocabulary can’t avoid expanding due to the more cerebral content of Eoin Colfer’s dialogue! I wish, however, that the editor(s) had done a better job of eliminating the errors peppering the book. This is the reason for the loss of one star. I am not an editor, prof-reader, nor an English major. I don’t expect perfection, but I would expect to notice only one or two obvious errors in a book that was supposedly scrubbed by those being paid (presumedly good money) to do so. I stopped reading each time to explain the error (and the correction that should have been made) to my son, who was reading along with me. At least it became an opportunity to teach/learn.
