Book held hostage

My long awaited copy of Perfumes: The Guide is being held against its will at my local post office. Apparently it's too big for my letter box.

Will love hearing your thoughts on this; I think yourself laughing in agreement and howling disagreement.

How about an arms for hostage deal...they give you the hostage, they get to keep their arms?

I'm sure you already know about the free online newsletter update...perhaps that can keep you occupied until the postal authorities release the prisoner? :/

J- I'm so excited about it- it's only been released in the UK this week. When I finally free it from the post office at the weekend I will be reading it from cover to cover. Will report back!

S- if they don't release it free from harm I might become violent!

Yes I am signed up to the online newsletter and love the reviews on there but I need to read more!!

Hi Rose- I can't wait until you get this book... whether or not you agree with their reviews (they can be quite harsh)- it makes for an interesting read. I actually just got the book last week from amazon and have so much fun flipping through the pages and reading the different reviews. Not sure I agree with their black and white approach though...

Hi DC- I can't wait to read it but it's still being held! I have to go and get it by lunchtime on Saturday but it's a train journey away and I am going to a matinee so I'm not sure what will happen! Will keep you posted. Yes I have heard they're very opinionated- not sure how I'll feel if they slate one of my perfume loves!

Yes I think the worst thing is when they give a perfume you love a mediocre rating- *** which is "adequate". Nobody wants to love an adequate perfume! But you'll see when it arrives- good luck!
