IANASK Typos
« on: March 31, 2010, 05:50:23 AM »
Brandon's forum has a typo-reporting thread. I think it's a great idea—thousands of eyes are much better at catching mistakes than one (err, two). And, being possessed of a helpful mood, and having just caught a typo in IANASK, I came here to report it. Let me know if this falls under the "not cool" column and I'll happily quit and ignore all typos from here on out.

U.S. Hardcover, p. 27, halfway down the page: "I'm, like you're only friend in the world—you wouldn't kill me."

Ooh, I hate when people get your/you're confused.  I nearly put the book down whenn I saw that typo.  But I didn't, obviously, and I'm glad.

I almost always see typos, and it drives me nuts in a book that is great otherwise. This book had me so absorbed, I admit I missed that one!

U. S. trade paperback, p. 35, last sentence of the second complete paragraph - "The first one was; Don't mess with animals."

I'm pretty sure the semicolon should've been a colon. If not, I don't think the "Don't" should've been capitalized.

Also, U. S. trade paperback, p. 201, second line of the page - "Its dark eyelids slid grotesquely over its wide, crystalline eyes, as it if couldn't see me clearly."

Should be "if it" instead of "it if."

Re-read the book on my flight out east, and ran across a possible goof. US trade paperback, pages 80 and 230 don't agree. 80 says that there are streetlights (John says that they're safe because the house and street lights are on) while 230 says that there aren't (John is glad that they don't (or, NO LONGER???;)) have streetlights because it makes it easier to sneak about).

I saw that you're/your mixup, and then another one.  But I can't find the second one any more.  :(
