I note that the book is already unrecommended by one person on Amazon UK, a few months before the release!

Hmmm... I don't see that on the Amazon UK page, but... anything you'd like to do to help fight the internet trolls, by marking it recommended yourself, would be highly appreciated.

-Win, who wonders how anyone but a troll could mark it unrecommended when the book has not come out yet...

Hmm, bad doins on the internet. I didn't make it up, honest guv. but checking today it's not there anymore. It wasn't on the page itself, but on a search page where Pemberley House came up, linking to the page, giving price, details and one recommendation.

Very weird... but then the Internets is a strange and mysterious thing. ;-)

Thanks for the heads-up, anyway. :-)
