Re: Has anyone read this book, and is it any good?
- I wish it was that easy, looking on the Australia-wide library
database it isn't there.
I'm generally inclined to give up when I can only find a copy of it in
Europe since the postage alone generally is what drives the price of
these things up. The balticshop.com copy at $40AUS including postage
is cheap enough, in a general sense, that it is extremely tempting to
buy it for myself. That, and it's written in English which is
extra-exciting for me.
Sorry I'm so negative, but it was difficult enough convincing my
library to order in the only copy of a book in Australia from
interstate, let alone trying to track down a book from overseas.
