Jay --

I just checked out a copy of The Last Juror, and the hilarious goat passage you 
quoted below was not cut off. The page break must have been missing at that 
point, because the phrase -- "goat roasting" is interrupted by the number 173 
(the page number). But none of the text is missing. I suspect this is what 
you're seeing throughout the book, rather than missing text. Any other 
examples? Hopefully almost as funny?

I downloaded and am reading John Grisham's The Last Juror. Every couple of 
pages, the last sentence in a paragraph is incomplete. In many cases, a lot 
of text is cut off. This book should not have been approved. I think it 
should be taken out of circulation and rescanned.

I was shocked and temporarily traumatized by one occurrence:

"For the first six months  I lived in Clanton, I usually fled the place on 
weekends. There was so little to do. Other than an occasional goat"
