On closer inspection, really not happy with the quality. There is glue all over the place along the edges of the pages.
send it back for a replacement but read it first. :wink:

I think the free print may have been from Waterstones only. :?

My limited edition arrived this morning and is fine (no extra glue problems). The extra bit by Jacqueline Simpson looks interesting :) but is apparently full of spoilers so can only be read when I finish the book.
One of those? Oh I'm sure I have one somewhere..

Have a copy in the post but wanted to get a second reading copy but none of the bookshops in Dublin had it yesterday. Very strange really considering they had a million smiling Blairs in each window.
Hopefully this will be amended or has anyone come across this problem.

The story flows extremely well and is very hard to put the book down. :D

finished reading my copy today and loved every bit of it...seemed much better than Wintersmith and i shall really miss reading stories involving Tiffany as i think she is a fantastic character.

Wasn't aware that they were going to be releasing a special edition of the book and hope i get some money soon so i can grab a copy.

I'm sure I delivered a few in my guise as a rural postie even though I didn't get mine until friday afternoon. I bought two in Tesco, one for my beloved Kade thousands of miles away in South Africa and the other that I tried so hard not too devour too quickly...but I failed.
I spent friday evening utterly enthralled and even saved the last fifty pages or so for today because it was fittingly midnight after all.

A much much darker book obviously and all the better for it imho. A little sad that the Feegles weren't given the opportunity to make me laugh as much (they always do) but oh so moving in myriad ways.
