Famous Books with Errors
It is a lot of work to write a book, and authors and editor’s everywhere can never, no matter how hard they try, be perfect. It is a fool’s errand to consider perfection the goal. What ultimately matters is the story shines through in clear and well-written manner. We do our best for readers. We want to put our best foot forward, but no matter how hard we try someone will always find something we missed. It doesn’t help that English has many dialects and subjective choices when it comes to grammar, syntax, and punctuation (it is why we use or create style guides as editors).
