Milo People Who Eat Darkness: The Fate of Lucie Blackman
This is actually 373 pages long, not 320, as currently stated on goodreads. Can it please be fixed. Thanks.

Beth (bethjustbeth) | 1586 comments worldcat is saying 320, the 373 just the story, or does it possibly include an excerpt from another book, author notes, bio, anything like that? Definitely the same isbn?

Elizabeth (Alaska) | 6585 comments Yes, there seems confusion over the page length. I changed it, though Worldcat shows the 320, Amazon shows 384. I've changed it to your 373 as you seem to be looking at it. ;-)

Milo Thanks! Yes, am reading it now, hardback copy from the library.

For extra detail:
Main book is from page 1 - 373
Next lot of pages are blank or photos, unnumbered
Acknowledgements 378-379, numbered
Notes (references) 380-391, numbered
Index 392-404, numbered

So I think stating 1-373 is probably the most accurate. Odd that Worldcat and Amazon both wrong. And the ISBN quoted is the one printed on the back cover.

Sara ♥ (saranicole) | 318 comments The librarian manual states that you include the end materials in the total page count... Basically anything that isn't an advertisement for other books.
