Title: Blank
 From your example,it seems to me that this is a reason for rejecting the book, i.e., that there are broken sentences that don't fit together and the story doesn't read smoothly. unless you have the print book and  book and want to fix it yourself, but that could be time-consuming, and if you're blind  and can't read the print book, it would be impossible, smile.

Hey Guys,
Can someone tell me what are the legitimate reasons for rejecting a book? I have the book that  I have been proofreading for some time and I am starting to see that some of the sentences are not continuous. Here is an example:
streamers through the low, heady atmosphere. These sounds, of life in
its infancy, were there as John Verlaine was woken by the incessant
shrilling of the phone; and such a call at that time in the morning
meant, more often than not, that someone somewhere was dead. [**here is where one of the sentences is not making sense]
New Orleans Police Department for eleven years, somewhere in
amongst that three and a half years in Vice, the last two years in Homicide;
 single, mentally sound but emotionally unstable; most often tired,
less often smiling."
***The book is not "flowing" so what should I do? This is early in the book and I am just starting to figure out why it has been taking me a while to finish. I just thought that this was just a book that didn't peek my interest but I see now that is not the case.
Please advise. Thanks
