Janina It's exactly the same for me. Only that I haven't had the time to read it yet ... ;).

Ahhh. Then let's hope that that part will be the same for you, too. I am quite positive of that, though.

oliviasbooks There is a super cheap edition coming up because of the movie. And it's 25% reduced on top at TBD, Nic: http://www.bookdepository.com/book/97...

Nic Tina, do you think I will like it ;)

Thanks Olivia but I don't know if I want that cover. I will just imagine Rob and Reese but then again it is only $6.11. I like this cover Water for Elephants by Sara Gruen the best which they don't have in stock! What to do!

oliviasbooks Oh, they do, Nic. It's the British edition, so you have to switch to the UK TBD. I've just ordered it, because I want a nice copy to keep: http://www.bookdepository.co.uk/book/...

Nic Oh yay! Okay must order it. It sucks it is double the price though. Thanks Olivia :)

Nomes fab review :)

i've just reserved this at my library ~ only 2nd in the queue.

is there a US book depository? i only use the UK one...

and the UK cover is SO very funky


message 12: by ~Tina~ (new)

~Tina~ Yes Nic! I think you will really enjoy this book. I know that it doesn't sound like your cup of tea, cause that's how I felt, but I strongly believe you will fall in love with Jacob, not in a lusting way, but in a very endearing way.
I read this at my lib, but that movie tie-in edition is the cover I've been waiting for!!!! XD

It always pays to compare prices and availability. Often the books from British Publishers are available (and at .com not in stock) at the.co.uk site and also cheaper, whereas the US publications are cheaper at the .com site usually.

oliviasbooks But I really don't know why they have two sites at all considering that they both ship to all corners of the globe. The support email is the same and the persons who reply as well.


message 16: by Teccc (new)

Teccc I would assume that this is for tax reasons: Maybe the US site also has a registered office in the US and thus can bypass some taxes on imports? Just a guess...


message 17: by Arlene (new)

Arlene Great review Olivia. I have a copy of this book too. I must read it before the movie comes out.


message 18: by ~Tina~ (new)

~Tina~ Yes, Arlene. Read this!!
