Jumping to the end of the book at the end of every chapter?

Hi,

I'm having this problem on a Kobo Aura H20

I have an epub that jumps to the end of the book whenever I finish a chapter (last page which just lists the publisher's information)

Some chapters I can get to from the table of contents, while others I cannot.

Is there a reasonably easy way to fix this?

This suggests that the epub structure is gorched. If the epub is not copyrighted, you can attach it to a message here and have it looked at. Alternates would be to post the title/author so someone can take a look at a sample. You could also PM the book or link to me.

I looked at the book and sent you a modified copy. Best I could do in the 15 minutes I allowed. Basically, the toc.ncx had issues with ids that did not exist in the epub and duplicated playorders. There were good chunks of epub3 only code in what showed as a epub2 file. The first pass through it, epubcheck pretty much upchucked. After correcting most of those errors (the inventors of regex be praised!), it seems much happier now.
