How long under review ?

I uploaded my wife's book to KDP three days ago. After 24 hours I got a message from Amazon asking if my wife was the author - confusion because I am the one uploading. We answered that question and now still waiting. Book still shows under review.
What are other authors' experiences?

Incidentally, also uploaded to Smashwords and am impressed with the countdown of how many people are in the queue ahead - it counted down from 2855 to zero in about 23 hours.

In both cases, after faffing around with different conversions, I then went for the simple option of uploading a word.doc file and the conversion on on both looks fine. Mind you I did what Smashwords calls a 'Nuclear' reformat on both.

I'm moving this to Authors & Publishers where you will hopefully get a response.
