^ Just throwing this out there for consideration regarding future polls: Jumping from outstanding to above average is too huge a difference in my opinion.
Maybe it's just me but only few novels get the equivalent of outstanding from me, on the other end there are more than enough novels better than above average, but weaker than outstanding. A option like good or something similar between those two would be nice.
On topic: Amazon.de had ZSG listed as in stock the last few days, but despite a pre-order they haven't dispatched one to me, probably because it is in one order with other novels, although that hasn't stopped them from sending books out when they're available in the past. Now it's listed as shipping in 4 -6 weeks.
