I'm reading a Sherlock Holmes pastiche at the moment. The plot is brilliant, 4/5 stars. The author emulates Conan Doyle sufficiently, 3.5 stars. The work is riddled with typos. The author used spell check, but not a proofreader or editor, 2/5 stars. I'm not sure I can look past that enough to finish the book. It's hard to be the Charles sometimes. #pedant
Oh good. It's not just me. Nadine from Goodreads:
This has to be the book with the worst editing I’ve ever come across. There’s not a single page that doesn’t contain at least one mistake. Missing words, doubled words, paragraphs all wrong, missing punctuation etc.
I'm rating it ⭐⭐ and moving on.
