I ordered a book from this site and have had no luck in receiving my order. I have reached out to Rob in many ways and was only able to get him to respond on Twitter. However, the response was less than cordial. So, I decided to put my web skills to work. Read for yourself!

I held a lot of hope for The Force Awakens, in that it would bring back the old feeling I had when I was a kid watching the movie with my Mom and Dad and little brother for the first time.
