# Python Brain Teasers: backslash characters inconsistent, a bit hard to read (page 63)

On page 63, the first backslash on this line:

path = 'c:\path\to\nowhere'


is printed as I would expect, but the following two are much more vertical and look like a vertical bar character, or like a backslash followed by a space.

I find the way the first backslash is printed to be more legible. This applies throughout the book, though most of the time it’s fairly obvious in context.
