Amazon always heavily discount newly published Books ................ but what is more interesting here is how on earth there can be any Reviews at all as it hasn't yet been released!

Thanks Panda. That's a huge discount before it goes on sale.

I think that those reviews would be for the hardback version. Because this is a paperback edition of the same book (plus the fabulous epilogue, with its denunciation of anything that may not have a 'wholly innocent explanation' ) the previous reviews stand.

The same thing happens when a kindle edition of a book is launched.

I'm just wondering that the epilogue has been commissioned by Transworld for comparatively little money. I don't think the book did as well as expected and film rights are very unlikely to be sold. That's where the really big money is usually.

There's already been a film 'Gone baby, gone and Kate has deluged us with her version of events (flapping hands, flapping curtains - standard stories) that any film would be a turkey.

The epilogue is necessary to tell people there's something new to be learned from the book, somehow I doubt it. I do hope that Kate's remark in the Swedish interview, when she said she was taken aback at how much the twins could remember, doesn't reveal false memory syndrome of the twins. I couldn't stand that!

Just wonder re the medicines topic, if it isn't going to be full of questions answered before they're asked? (see topic on this)

Yes TIEN, I noticed that. It obviously refers to the first Book , which, incidentally is also available as a kindle. Since it is exactly the same cover etc,
I'm just wondering if the Epilogue is tagged on go the end of the original book , maybe 30 odd pages which is why it is so heavily discounted.

Heavy discounts are par for the course with Amazon ............ I order all my Cookery Books at or shortly before release and they are invariably around 50% below RRP.

Yes, I order my cookery books from there too because of the great discounts. There's also the private sellers and I was able to get one of my best loved book, which I had lost, for just 1p plus postage. And it was new! (The New Cranks Recipe Book)

Yes, the private sellers do good deals. I have managed to get some old copies of "The Dandy" comic annual for my daughter on there much cheaper than on e-bay.

I must just say, though, that I will never subject my beloved kindle to 'the book'. Even if they sell it for a penny.

I had a look at The Cranks Bible on Amazon just now, even though I've got a copy, to see how much they were discounting it. Only available from 3 sellers, new from £109!

Cripes, if you didn't love the book so much you could sell it on and make a massive profit!

I'll keep it! One of my really good books. Cover price is £25, but I bought mine from a book club, as an introductory offer, for something like £8 some years ago.

I've also got a book that I bought in 2009 for $32 including shipping from the US. First edition copies now going for hundreds, but I've got #229 of the first 300 signed by the author! I'm looking after it!

Re: Kate's "Epilogue"

Post  Panda on Mon 7 May - 15:45

According to my Oxford Dictionary ......"Epilogue, the concluding part of a Book"

I have been wondering why it was felt necessary by the Author and Publisher to add a possible chapter to the original Book published last year which
Kate said was for her children to read when they are older.

1. Has there been any major development to suggest the whereabouts of Madeleine ? NO

2. Have the Portugese decided to re-open the case? NO

3. Is there any reason why Kate and Gerry still insist Madeleine is alive? NO

4. If the SY review finds no new evidence will Kate and Gerry continue searching for Madeleine ? No

5. Could the reason for the Epilogue be to sell off the many thousands of Paperbacks issued last year with a couple of new paragraphs and deletion
of others.....yes.

6. Will the twins when they are grown up relate to this Book about a Sister they only remember from Photographs ? No

If you can think of anything else, feel free.

No experience of ordering cookery books, but as an avid consumer of crime novels I find that new novels by authors such as Peter Robinson or Veronica Stallwood sell at their highest price for say the first 6 months to one year following publication and thereafter get progressively cheaper. There seems to be a lower limit too however and even after several years, a good author never gets discounted as much as the paperback version of KM's drivel. Perhaps Amazon should be promoting it as a classic that's due to become a standard work for students of psychiatry and criminology in the near future.

It would have to be read next to the publication of the facts of the case of course - but that might well happen. The case is unique.

AnnaEsse - since you read crime novels - have you read The talented mr. Ripley? Patricia Highsmith. A brilliant portrayal of a psychopath. Except Ripley had style.

I closed my amazon account when they caved in to a threatening cruck letter! Check often at the local PDSA shop for a copy of the bewk as I think that's a real charity.
