Ten chapters missing

Hi everyone. If someone's already posted about this, do forgive me.
I was reading my copy of "The Big Over Easy" this morning, and when I got to the end of page 260 (part of chapter thirty-one "Home Sweet Home) the text is cut-off midway, and the next page is, instead of 261, 325, and is the beginning of chapter 41 "Dr. Horatio Carbuncle." And as I skimmed through the rest of the pages, wondering if some of them got mixed up, I realized that chapters 41 through 44 are actually printed -twice-! Now, I know Mr. Fforde likes to have his fun with his books, what with the whole Chapter 13 business. But is this how my book is supposed to be, or is this a defective copy? I'd really like to know, so I know whether or not to keep reading, or if I need to find a new copy and return the one I have.
If anyone can help me out, I'd really appreciate it.
