Elementary My Dear Groucho is not so elementary
Whoever proof read the book "Elementary My Dear Groucho" must not have gotten past elementary school. I bought the book not long ago at a used book store. I knew I would like it as I always like books by Ron Goulart. But I noticed some spelling errors but I could live with that. Then in chapter 26 a page is missing. Not torn out. It wasn't published in my book. Still I pressed on. Only to find that chapters 27 through 30 were missing also. Instead chapters 4 through 7 were re-published to take their place. I still want to see how it ends but not with missing chapters. So for now I have stopped reading the book. I don't fault Mr. Goulart. I fault Thomas Dunne Books St. Martin's Press.
