Sam - Spines in a Line asked:
I'd like to read this book but this description is just a run-on mess. It's certainly putting me off. Who wrote this?

Marne Wilson The descriptions come from the publishers, usually. (We Goodreads librarians do have the power to change them, and I sometimes do when I find a horrible one.) What a lot of people don't realize is that there's a different description for each edition of the book. If I find one that's horrible, I look at the different editions until I find one that I like better. I looked at four different descriptions of this book, and none look like a "run-on mess" to me. Maybe it already got fixed, or maybe we just have different standards!
