They took over a week to dispatch some books to me, and they've still not arrived.

Good deal though. Veronika Decides to Die was a brilliant book. I've read The Alchemist too which was ok.

Did anyone else think the Alchemist was over hyped tripe. I fear being flamed for this.

HEAT HEAT HEAT What a fantastic deal, one of the best writers around!

Could not agree more. Everything about this writer is over-hyped, specially that one book. Good deal though. You can't go wrong with The Book People. Will check the website. There must be good deals on books by more decent authors.

Fully agree with you - I found it so painful I stopped reading it. Its one of only 3 (maybe 4) books I have ever given up on without finishing. However, the fact YoshimiMac says some of his other work is superior to Alchemist means I may give him a second try some time.

That aside, the deal itself looks spot on if you are in the market for it.

A good deal - love the Book People boxed sets. I read The Alchemist and thought it was disappointing twaddle. Totally over-hyped, left me completely unmoved. But then if you believe the quotes on the back of most books these days, each one is an unforgettable masterpiece.

I bought this collection from The Book People a few years back at this price and good to see they have it back in though with new artwork - excellent collection and a very interesting author.

Just noticed it has a couple of different titles including the more recent Zahir which I bought in hardback so may pop for this...

Great deal! Cheers

Yeah exactly my thought! You sometimes think you are the one in the wrong when you don`t get swept along in the hype. Nice to see my opinion shared. It wasn`t a bad book. I just finished thinking what a waste of my time that was!!

Quidco at 6% as well:thumbsup:
