Amazon seems a bit confused about this item. On Amazon US, alongside the title at the top of the page is a dialogue box containing the message that it's no longer available. A release date is given, but only in the product details lower down. Amazon UK does not list an audio version, only the hardback, paperback and Kindle editions.

The book sounds very interesting, but if the audio recording is released on 9th Feb, it looks as though it will be available only as a download from Audible. If that's the case, it rules me out. I don't subscribe to Audible, and don't wish to do so just to obtain one particular title. I'd have to wait to see if it comes out on CD at a later date.

Yeah, it tells me it's not available "for you." Sounds like the soup nazi from Seinfeld. :rofl:
I'll investigate further.

I searched around a bit and got very excited when I saw this -
http://www.amazon.com/Y-Life-Michael-Ki ... 268&sr=1-5
from debut novelist Michael Kitchen! But no, not our MK. :sad:

Lesley, I think the reason you and I got the "not for you" message was because we followed Amiga's link, but we're not in the US. I've just gone directly to Amazon.com and signed in on there - it will know I'm not in the US but that way it sees me as an Amazon.com customer (well, anyway, I know what I mean by that ...). Now the message does not appear when I call up the Shylock item.

There's no mention of Michael Kitchen's name anywhere on the page, and, curiouser and curiouser, the info as to various versions available is different from that which Amiga is seeing. Mine says:
Kindle $7.26
Hardcover $18.75
Audible $25.43

It also says "this item has not been released yet and is not eligible to be reviewed" and then proceeds to display several reviews!

What on earth ...?

Amazon Canada lists the book, but not the audiobook. I joined Audible a while ago, but a search for the title yields no results. Probably because it hasn't been released yet. I'll keep checking.

I find Audible very good, Lynne, even getting a 'pair' of interesting books in a two for one credit deal. Only problem is now I have four audiobooks in my 'to be listened to' stack, six ebooks in my 'to be read' e-stack, as well as eight physical books on my bedside table! :eyeroll: :biggrin:
So many books, so little time.

I've heard one can make a decent income being paid by writers to post positive reviews on various sites.
But I did read many of the reviews of this book, and found them very thorough and properly critical. Not sure I'll enjoy this book, other than listening to MK's lovely voice.

Getting ready to order this with an Audible free trial. Includes two free books. I've never listed to an audio book narrated by anyone but MK. Anyone have any suggestions for another voice that would be easy on my ears?

I realized last night that I hadn't downloaded Train Robbery. I bought the CD and transferred it to my laptop and iTunes. Since no CD seems to be available for Shylock, I'll have to see how the downloading goes. Unfortunately, CDs seem to be going the way of VCR tapes.

Let us know if you come up with an alternative. Thanks.

Interesting review. Thanks!
Has anyone been able to buy the audiobook?
I am still getting the message box on the right side of the page saying, "This title is not available for you."
