Might be worth trying simply for the fact that Higson has proven he definitely knows how to write perfectly paced action/adventure with the Young Bond series.

As in not good, or as in scary (as it's supposed to be)?
I like it. I had no expectations or requirements. It's not like it's a Bond book, so I got no dog in this fight. I think it does the job. Clearly it's a scary book by Charlie Higson (nice big above the title billing).
The skulls are very similar to the Double or Die cover, so maybe this is an excuse to redo new editions of Double or Die. Always thought that could have been a stronger cover. Let's get a gambling or puzzle image on DOD. Can't have kids confused, Puffin.

And Higson's finally getting some worthy billing on his books.
Bring on The Enemy!

This is interesting. Had no idea Charlie was such a horror buff.
Charlie has always been a fan of ‘70s and ‘80s horror. While at university he studied gothic literature, a film course on horror and wrote a dissertation on David Cronenberg, as well as putting on all night horror movie showings.

My girlfriend and I recently ordered a couple of books from The Book Depository and they were delivered less than a week after they shipped (mine took a few days to dispatch, mind). Excellent service.

I'm actually not sure when I'm going to get/read this. Not being YB, I didn't feel I could ask Puffin for an advance copy. I did have it pre-ordered, but I think I'm going to wait and see what kind of collectible copies pop up on eBay (signed or with extras). I'm also moving and packing up the house, so my world is in chaos. I look forward to getting and reading the book in my new digs...so that means it won't happen until after the 15th.
All your hard work on YB plus you always plug Charlie's other works, with all that surly they would send you and advance?
Is it in soft back or hardback?
After YB it's sure to be a hit. Lets face it he can write a dam good book. I really tapped into the YB series. Even it's for kids it evokes memories of when I was one.

Puffin do a bloody good job on Higson's books. Lovely black end papers. And the ones I saw were already into second printing.
