You are correct, I certainly will! Just as I know you will let us know if you hear directly from Ms. Taylor or the publisher.
There is even a 5* review that says:
"So the story is great. It could use some formatting though. I'm rather partial to paragraphs having tabs or space between. Either will do. But I must say again. Great story."
I'm with you that formatting would certainly affect my rating downward if I could get through it, but at least I'm convinced the story will be fantastic when it does become properly readable!
The mind boggles.
I mean, I guess I get that she's reviewing the story
but I really can't conceive how a person can enjoy a story when it's such hard work to read it. I wonder if I should be envious of someone who can ignore those sorts of problems.
In the early days of kindle I got a book like that and I muddled through a good bit of it, figuring that I was willing to excuse the formatting for a decent story and accepting that not everyone had this whole kindle publishing thing completely figured out. Early adopters gotta put up with stuff sometimes.
(I did give up on it when it became clear there were problems with the story/writing besides!
) But in this case, 10 years in to the ePublishing era, we're talking about a 'real' publisher for an author who's popular and, I gotta think, profitable for them! I find it inexcusable.
My mother was having a hissy fit at not being able to talk to me about the story as she was reading. I think she called every time she got to one of Linjeakels' "I didn't expect that" and "that" and "that" moments wanting to know if I could read it yet.
Poor thing! When the fixed copy shows up, she can re-read it with you.
