    Amazon reviews are the worst at things like this. You ordered the wrong sized shirt? One star! You don’t like the cardboard cover to a Blu-ray that hasn’t even come out yet? One star!

    All good points . I have not heard a review that said the length was the issue .
    Even the couple wasnít an issue in the reviews I have read . Guess when Iím done with my current book I am just going to have to read it for myself. I just found it interesting that there was so much negativity about the book on the release day .

    Don't want to say too much, even though it isn't really a spoiler, but I know some readers don't even read the sales copy so they go in completely blank on what the book will be about!

    I could not agree more with you view of the message of the book.

    I think several of the reviews on Amazon are complaining about the length of the story.

    I think I ordered the slipcased hardcover from CD back on February 7. I haven't received a shipping notice, and I can't find anything about the Elevation book on the CD web site. Is CD waiting on the slipcases to be made before they ship the books?

    Nope. Our copies aren't here yet (should be soon though I think) if you're in a rush shoot me an email and I've got some copies we're using for people who ask (until I run out). Plus we're still bogged down with Gwendy and now the Halloween sale orders.

    Thanks, Dan. That's OK, I can wait. I don't want to muddy the waters. I was just curious.

    I liked the book however the same goes for most shorter stories (Novellas) The character building and main body of the story takes a lot of time to build up to and then once everything is done building up, the story ends. Guess since we are all so use to 2 hour movies we try to envision the story as a movie as we are reading it. All in all, worth the money I spent on it I am not disappointed but definitely would of liked a little more.

    I think this will be the 1st time in many years I don't run out to buy a new SK book. Based on many factors I will just pick this up some other time.

    The one thing about this one is you like it or you don't. There doesn't seem to be any middle ground with this one. I liked it .
