    Wrong grammar

    I was thinking about buying this book to acquaint myself with one of the greatest and most audacious writers of the subcontinent. But when I flipped through my friend's copy and found schoolboy grammatical errors in the translation, I lost all interest. Seriously, don't translators need to get their basic grammar and diction right in order to get published anymore? Then again, the success of the Twilight series, Chetan Bhagat and Durjoy Datta says enough about that.
