Depends on whether you also noticed and laughed (as I did) when half-way thru the book, the authors announced that, because the primary influence on English changed from England to US, they'd change to American English for the rest of the book -- and then they changed spelling but still used British-style quote punctuation.

Taken to that level, yeah - weird and frightening! ;-)
