I am rather disappointed to find out that my much anticipated order is out of stock with no indication of how long I am going to have to wait before it is dispatched. Having placed my pre-order months ago I had expected to be one of the first to receive this title. At the very least it would have been nice to know when Amazon expects the book to be in stock, then I could have decided whether to cancel my purchase and order it elsewhere - from somebody that can get it to me when promised!
Ordered a copy at W.H. Smith (second printing, that is) and I was notified a couple of weeks ago that it had arrived and was ready for me to pick up at the store although I haven't yet had time. So clearly it's now available, who knows what's with Amazon. However, please note: the W.H. Smith price was a good bit lower (10.87)!
