Random Rivers of London question

I finally got around to reading The Furthest Station, which I had pre-ordered and has been sitting on my Kindle ever since my pre-order came in, and I am now wondering - did anyone else who bought the Kindle version of this get what appears to be an ARC version? It's full of typos (I normally notice a typo or two in any published book, because I just have the kind of brain that notices them, but this one was more on the level of the kind of thing I expect from competently written but unbeta'd fanfic - several noticeable typos or misused words per chapter) and there were also what appear to be notes to the "translator" scattered throughout (translator from UK to US English, that is). ETA: Never mind about that last one, as it's apparently intentional; see comments!

I didn't really mind, and it didn't make for a poor reading experience - I enjoyed the book; I'm not going to demand a refund or anything - but I am curious if I'm the only one who had this experience. I skimmed the Amazon reviews to see if anyone mentioned it, but didn't notice anyone else bringing up anything like that.
