Winners of this much talked about debut novel - more details here - should be receiving their copies shortly. If you do get one, don't forget to leave your comments and questions for author Gail Honeyman on this thread by the end of the month

Has anyone received a copy yet ?I am still living in hope!

Mapleleaf Tue 13-Jun-17 08:27:30

No, not heard anyone say they have. Not a lot of time left to read it, if folks haven't received one yet.?

CariGransnet (GNHQ) Tue 13-Jun-17 09:48:42

Any news on distribution Cari? Are you going to extend the review date as we only have 2 weeks of June left?

CariGransnet (GNHQ) Tue 20-Jun-17 12:17:59

Right - the books are very definitely going in the post today. And of course we will extend the deadline accordingly.

Very pleased to report that Eleanor Oliphant has just popped through my letterbox! (Hope she was worth the wait). Will try and read asap and report back but from a quick look - she looks promising!

I am looking forward to reading it and will post a review when finished.
Carigransnet, when would you like to have the reviews - you mentioned that there would be an extension?

Copy received a few minutes ago. Thank you GN. Looking forward to reading it. Having said that, cari would appreciate knowing the extended deadline, only just started another book. Thank you

Thank you - my copy arrived this morning. It has had good reviews so I am looking forward to reading it as soon as I have finished 'The Italian Holiday' by Maeve Haran an which I am really enjoying.

gillgran Fri 23-Jun-17 13:37:02

My copy has just arrived, as there was no message or clues as to where it came from, I've sent messages to my DD & DDIL to ask if they had sent it.!! ( Sorry, I had forgotten it had been on GN.) My DH is due for operation in hospital within the next week, so I may struggle to finish, ( or start it, ! ), any time soon.
Thanks, anyway.
