Bad Editing for a Beloved Classic
By Cedar Dryad
The worst editing job of a fantastic and beloved novel that I have ever had the misfortune to see. Typos and cut-and-paste errors throughout this classic. Anne of Green Gables is a warm and wonderful story; this is just an awful edition. Hire a decent editor and do it over, please.
The character of Anne is so amazing! I love her imagine and her beautiful outlook on life. Everyone should read this!
Great book but Lots of typos and missing text
I only read 3 chapters before I lost patience and downloaded another edition.
By Sassy HLa
I love this so much. Made me cry. Definitely recommend 💗💗💗💗
I regret that I did not read this book many years ago when my young daughter recommended it! She is right. It is a wonderful and very enjoyable book. L.M.M does a superb job of developing her characters and the story.
Too many typos
By Greg Graeber
This edition has many typos and omissions. So many that I'm abandoning it in the first chapter and getting another edition. The typos are just an annoyance, but I'm concerned about missing text.
An excellent story, but….
L.M. Montgomery had an excellent command of language and story. I first read this book when I was Anne’s age at the beginning of the story, and I have thoroughly enjoyed reestablishing the acquaintance. I gave the rating a 4 instead of 5 because this digital copy has several editing mistakes: garbled paragraphs, missing text, etc.
Great story, horrible version. Don't download this!
Anne of Green Gables is one of my favorites. Thought I'd keep a copy on my iPad, saw this for free, and downloaded it.
By page 8, I was irritated by the number of spelling and punctuation errors!
Checked some other downloadable options, and found one for $0.99, which includes all 4+ novels in the series. No grammar or spelling issues that I've found so far.
I recommend investing $0.99 to read this beautiful story as the author intended.
There are some typographical errors in this free version of the book and a short bit near the end where the text is garbled a bit, but it won't hinder your enjoyment of the book. I will not ding it down a star for those problems since the writing is excellent and this book is free.
Great book HORRIBLE EDITION
So far I am loving this book. This is the first time I have read it. Unfortunately I picked a horrible free edition because text is garbled, sentences are skipped and in some places nothing makes sense! For Oxford to put their name on this release,they should have taken more time to review it and edit it.
It is deplorable!!!
