Both Abiword and OpenOffice fail to read Word file.

I have a Word file that nither OpenOff ci nor Abiword seem to be able to 

AbiWord reports,

AbiWord cannot open file:///farhome/hendrik/books/review-me/
Book1PropertyoftheQueen.doc. It appears to be an invalid document

OpenOffice says,

General Error,
General input/output error.

(that's OpenOffice.org 3.1.1 OOO310m19 (Build:9420 and abiword 2.6.8, 
both installed from DEbian Squeeze repositories.)

Any idea what I should do with this file besides copy it to a Windows 
machine?  I can't send it to the developers for copyright reasons (alas).
