I saw somewhere that the MDA already banned it [citation needed] and with geo-restrictions of ebooks, it may be difficult to get a copy legally.


yes it been banned...i was thinking of going to JB to read that book where i heard it is selling like hot cakes....


When I was in KL about 6 weeks ago, I saw that this book is sold in the KLIA (Kuala Lumpur International Airport) book shops.

carlsum: I think you can try Bras Basah. I sold a couple of my old fantasy/scifi books there, and they take pretty much anything. For pennies, though - they'll give you fifty cents usually, or a dollar if your book is large and in excellent condition. :(

Speaking of cheap books, GOHD Books is having a massive online clearance sale: http://www.gohd.com.sg - upto 70% off. A lot of the books I want are sold out though. :(
