    By the way I won an A/E copy of Replay. I am over the moon about winning something and appreciate Suntup for being so very generous. Not sure if anyone from the Suntup team is here but if you are Thank You Very Much.

    Anyone know what this book will be? Not sure if I misheard or not but it sounded like it will not be Hex.

    Replay is also not on the nook(B&N). I picked up a paperback on Amazon and put it in my TBR stack. Haven't gotten to it yet. At this point I think I'll wait for the numbered edition to get to me.

    I am surprised it is not available on Kindle. I was not familiar with the story before. Four chapters into the Suntup edition and it is a fantastic read so far!

    That is interesting. Having never read this book I was intrigued upon release however the artwork (among other reasons $$) didn't grab me enough to make the purchase.

    I read the first 200 pages of Replay last night, and the art seemed like random pages from a catalog, having nothing to do with the story that I could see. I'm enjoying the book, though...probably at least 25 years since I last read it.

I wouldn’t have missed this deluxe edition of one of my favorite books, but as beautiful as the art is, for me it misses the tone of the book entirely…I understand the value of personal interpretation and different perspectives, butvI’m not even sure what the pieces are necessarily portraying — the cover, for example…no clue. Granted, it’s been a while since I read the book, but that’s not the story I remember.
    Couldn't have stated this any better. Exactly what I was trying to convey! The art, while well done and impressive to look at, doesn't have anything to do with the story, IMO. Would love to see Paul at Suntup do some sort of interview with the artist as I would love to hear his thoughts on why he created the art pieces that he created. Am wondering if the artist actually read the book or if they were just given a general idea as to what it was about and some of the themes. Am wondering if artists generally read the books that they are illustrating or if they prefer to create something without that influence. I'm sure it varies by artist; however, I've never really thought about that until now.

    Received my copy yesterday. Started reading it last night. I have no issue with the art but I do not know the story yet.

    For those who aren't on FB or subscribers to my channel, I'm giving away a numbered edition of The Collector with rights to a below 250 number! All you have to do is subscribe. Once I hit 1000 subscribers, I'll do a video with details on how you can enter. I'm thrilled for the chance to do this! Good luck!

    What a great Give-Away! I went to your channel to make sure I was (still) subscribed and was surprised to see that I wasn't. Even though I know I've hit that button- possibly even twice before (my kids and I watch all the time and enjoy the vids). Weird. Maybe it's all the different platforms I/my family use to watch youtube now: computer, phone, TV, tablet, and possibly not being properly signed in on one. Anyway, folks should double-check to make sure that they're subscribed to Jeff's great channel.

    Just might be my next listen if it's on audio. I need to try and find the movie as well.
    It is done well on audio. Listened to it again last week.
