I'm lucky this time. I've got the option to order it on 'Bol.com' (A Dutch website that sells different kinds of media. English too) or I can pick it up in Amsterdam. There's a neat little bookstore here called 'American Book Store'.

i guess if i would go to the southern part of hong kong were there are more western people, they most likely would have it but since its not close to my area and not cheap either to travel there, its actually cheaper for me to get it over ebay.

I didn't see you live in Hong Kong. Just a guess, but what about the airport? They usually have a multi language book store around.

the airport is at the far west. i live in the fat east. it takes over 2 hours to get there. and will cost me nearly 200HKD for one way. that would be around 20 euros.
i think you would agree that ebay is cheaper.

I'm got it reserved here in Boston. I'll be picking it up the day of.

Can I just point out the jacket she's wearing, it's a spitting image of Sam's. As mentioned before in the TR10 plot thread, it does look like Lara is wearing Sam's jacket in the Rise trailer (which apparently made it look black). That cover certainly suggests to me that the jacket does in fact belong to Sam

It does look good on Lara. Something tells me this book is going to be very interesting.

I just got an e-mail stating that my preorder of the book has been finalised and the item will release and ship on the 14th and I will receive it on the 16th thanks to my Two-Day Shipping.

I looked at amazon and they have both cover versions, the one we see (Lara with the jacket) and the one with her close up about to shoot an arrow. Both say paperback and the jacket version is to be released on the 14th and the arrow one to be released on the 20th. I don't see a bit of difference except the arrow one seems to be more expensive by like 20 cents. What's the difference? I would like this in hardcover but it only says paperback unless a hardcover version comes out later. I'm surprised it's so cheap too both are under $10.

That image of Motoleo's, it kinda looks like a cardboard image, like a placeholder and nothing else. Where are the pages ? Perhaps it's the angle he's holding it. I know it's not a very thick book...

The foreword indicates that the book does indeed start with the end of the game, and end where the comics begin. Which, I was hoping for major changes or revisions.

I got an email saying my pre-order would be dispatched "soon". The listing says it's available but still has the release date set as the 20th lol. What is the official street date?
10-13-2014, 02:25 PM
A few stores have started to release it early, but the official street date remains October 20th.

I've not heard anything about mine. In the my orders, it's telling me it's unavailable and they 'don't know when it'll be back in stock'. Does this mean I may not get it or it's just not released yet so that's why it's unavailable?.

for those who order it online, are you getting it from a retailer or just from amazon and ebay?
10-14-2014, 09:58 AM
@Valenka, well I pre-ordered from Amazon back in June as well, so I'll just keep my fingers crossed then. Edit: I cancelled my amazon order and ordered from WH Smith instead. This way I can just collect it on the day with no delivery charge and no worrying it won't be available.
It's odd and a little sad that I sometimes go online forgetting high street stores. It didn't even occur to me to try a local store, I think it was because I got to thinking it wouldn't be available from a 'regular' store, somehow.
