Plot it Yourself

Excellent Stout all the way. This is classic Nero Wolfe.

Plot It Yourself

This book is one of Rex Stout's masterful Nero Wolfe mysteries. I would rate it very highly if it were not for the fact that there are so many errors, typos, dropped punctuation marks, and incorrect words throughout the text, but particularly toward the end. I don't know who is responsible for this unprofessional editing and proof reading, whether the original paperback publisher (Bantam Books, I believe), or Apple, which offers the electronic version, but they ought to be ashamed. In the age of tweets and autocorrect, I suppose one can't expect the standards of publishing to continue, but it is a shame that no one in these companies bothers even to read the books they offer for sale to correct these egregious mistakes.

Good story, Sloppy syntax

Great book but the ending is marred by sloppy spelling and syntax.
