    When did you order it? Before a certain date (not sure when, but it will only have been a few days ago), they guarantee that it will arrive tomorrow - and I think Royal Mail have some special operation to make sure it does - so don't worry, just wait a little longer

    I ordered it months ago so it should come tomorrow. It doesn't stop me worrying though!

    Anyone else hear about the stoopid american online booksellers that sent out 1200 copies 4 DAYS EARLY due to 'human error.'

    What idiots working for that distributor wouldn't notice when the most important book of the year (in terms of sales/security etc) is getting sent out?

    How annoying, books were not here by 10am so I went to asda and bought 2. Came back, they still were not here then about an hour later royal mail put a thing through letter box saying they'd tried to deliver them (without even ringing the buzzer) ****ing ******s! So we wouldn't have had them till Monday! I'm going to send them back and demand a refund on account of royal mail being ******s!

    Half way through

    How easy do you think it would be to get a refund from Amazon? I don't think I can wait any longer!
    I gave up my break from work so I could come home early, but my brother and sister texted to say it wasn't here - I thought they were playing a trick on me.

    Edit - I didn't actually get an 'item dispatched' email, just the 'preparing for dispatch' one (on the 18th).

    Wait until tomorrow..
    If they guranteed delivery today (which they should have done) then you'll get a refund easy if it doesnt arrive today.
    My aunt ordered the last one from amazon....she was still waiting for it 2 weeks after the release. Hence why I opted to pick mine up at midnight last night...cant trust the post
