Ys, ive seen it when I visited the London office and it looks excellent. Very good value for the price too.

Awesome, best review I've read so far :D

I preordered it from the Book Depo, as shipping to AU was half the cost of the book. I think I'm more excited about this than the actual PS4 release...

Fans are going to be very pleased with this book. I also got a chance to flick through it in London and it's very clear that it's a thorough look at the franchise and that Meagan put a lot of love and effort into putting it together.

How are you getting your book so early? Amazon tells me mine will ship on October 21st and I paid for two day shipping so I should get it soon after.

I realised after I posted that the distributor actually sends it to the retailer, where they will hold onto it until the 20th :nut:
Oh well!
You'll probably get it before me, so post your impressions :)

I will. You had me really confused. I thought it released early in some parts of the world or maybe you got it early for doing something special for Meagan or something.

Well, I just got the notice of shipment to me, but from the UK it's about 5-8 days hehe.

I see. You will probably get yours before me anyway. My amazon order says it'll ship tomorrow and I paid for two day shipping but I'm staying in a motel until we can get into our new house due to complications from some idiots who don't know how to do their job. So, it might arrive by the 23rd but I don't know if it'll be UPS or USPS so I may not get to read it until at least Wednesday unless we have to pick up mail being held for us at the post office. This is very depressing.

I just got mine today it got here yesterday so it must have been sent out a few days ago. It is absolutely amazing though the quality of the cover, the style and the pictures are beautiful. It is very interesting to read too it is engrossing of what I've read of it so far. Really glad I bought it now thank you Meagan Marie and crystal dynamics for making this amazing book.:D

Hopefully I'll have my copy within two or three weeks, I literally cannot wait to get my hands on this.

Will definitely skip one or two of the fans featured in it, however. :)

It's literally perfect in every way. Thank you, Meagan Marie. I have no words, because this is truly phenomenal.

Got mine yesterday. I would have had it on Friday, but Australia Post thought it should deliver it to my neighbour... :rolleyes:

It's absolutely fantastic, clearly a lot of love went into creating this book. Well done, Meagan, and thank you so much.

The book is so awesome, 16€ for so much content and backgrounds. I thought it will be a fine but small nostalgia but it's completely different. You can dig deep into the thoughts of Gard and later Core, also love how I did understand Tomb Raider for real after using the editor and I got approved. I was 10 years old when I played Tomb Raider featuring Lara Croft and I was drawn back into 96 while reading. Remembering every day when the new TR was released and I walked to the next shop to get it.

Right now I read all the articles about the games and will read further now. Meagan, if you read this, it's a masterpiece for us fans, even better if you startet that early.

I was in the city today (Melbourne, Oz) and I popped into an EB Games.
They had a couple on the desk & the book is freaking massive :thumb:

Picked this up for a measly 12 english pounds on ebay. It's worth triple that, for its size and weight alone, let alone the reams and reams of content. Nice work Meagan, and thank you :)

I have just ordered mine. I was on the fence before, but flicking through a physical copy in a shop the other day, converted me. The book is a huge awesome looking monster :D.

This book needs to be on display in more game shops!
