The same book as Forever Summer Kindle Readers!,
This review is from: Nigella Summer (Kindle Edition)
For readers only looking at the kindle listing, this is the same book as Forever Summer! Why republish a book that is the same as a previous one with a slightly different title? I'm glad I checked out the look inside option before buying, the recipe index is identical to Forever Summer.
I'd don't know what is different with this book...but Nigella fans beware if you have already got Forever Summer you already have this book!

Absolutely right. I added this to my basket, but luckily checked the index and thought some of the recipes were familiar, a quick check of my copy of Forever Summer proved that it was the same book, a marketing ploy by the publishers who have not got a new Nigella title to publish this year.

No one said that it wasn't the same book
Release Date: 5 Jun 2014
Nigella Collection: a vibrant new look for Nigella's classic cookery books; previously published as FOREVER SUMMER."
Clearly stated everywhere, I found this on her own site, she's having all her cookbooks re-leased with new matching covers. Giving this 1 star is bs.

Point taken that this information may well be mentioned on Nigella's website, but it isn't stated anywhere on Amazon that it is the same book! I put 1 star so prospective buyers would wonder why such a brilliant author would rate so low and read my warning. I completely agree that the book Forever Summer and this one Summer are brilliant and very good, I'm a Nigella fan, but it IS misleading to have it sold elsewhere away from her site without at least a hint this is a re-launch of the same book! I'm sorry if my review upset you, but I feel that others needed to be informed that if they have Forever Summer they already have this "new" book, and other reviewers have found my review in this aspect helpful?

Are we not looking at the same website? It clearly says: Nigella Collection: a vibrant new look for Nigella's classic cookery books; previously published as FOREVER SUMMER.
It angers me when people use the review for other things than actually reviewing the content of the book.

On the KINDLE listing no mention is made about this being the same book. As I am buying all my new books on kindle, I don't look at the hard copy listing. However, you are right on the hard copy listing it does say what you describe. Maybe Amazon should've used the same listing for all versions of the book to avoid confusion. Looking at the replies I've had to my original post some people have found my post useful saving themselves wasting money. Reviews are to guide others and help others as well as give feedback. If the listing had been the same for kindle and hard copy there would be no confusion and I would not have felt the need to advise others this is the same book?
