Beth asked:

Not to complain but the actress is Farrah Fawcett, not Faucet, as in the book. Was that a typo?

Sara Someone who checked this book out before me crossed it out and wrote in the correct spelling of her name!
Lori I listened to the book so I didn't see those typos. However, publishers no longer have full-time copy editors on staff. They hire someone who is paid by the piece so the copy editor often rushes through and does not catch mistakes. I often catch grammar mistakes because correct grammar is not taught anymore. It is a pet peeve of mine. I encourage everyone to complain to the publishers so maybe they will hire at least one full-time person on staff.
Deb Typo? Have no idea. But it did rip me from the story as I laughed out loud. I immediately saw in my head the iconic poster of Farrah in her red one piece bathing suit. Imagining the word "Faucet" written across it...just hit me as funny.
Lisa I noticed quite a few typos as well. One was breath when it should have been breathe. That one is my pet peeve ;)
Leslie I didn't catch that (I'll have to go back and look -- what page?), however, there is a typo on page 206: they refer to Crystal as Crystal Lockwood, not Crystal Hagen. I did a double-take on that one.
Cindy I was looking for it-lol. The actually corrected it on the Kindle version.
Lisa Anne Morrow Now that I've read this, I won't read the book!
