Watch out this may say unabridged but it is actually the abridged version. The real unabridged is 14 (or so) hours long, you definitely will not get the whole story with this, I have read the actual book and this doesn't even begin to compare.
I liked it. After reading the short description I was surprised at the length of the book. I fully expected it to be a lot longer requiring a lot more detail. However, the plot developed quickly and the author did a good job of developing the main characters in line with the pace of the story. The pace was not fast, just sort of “to-the-point”. I was a little surprised at the ending and I don’t think that was the author’s intention. He downplayed the significance of some events as they occurred in the story yet they ended up being critical to the ending. On the same note there were some key points that could have been brought forward to support the ending that were not. It’s hard to describe without giving things away. The narrator did a decent job but at times his voice inflections seemed off the mark. Then again that could be due to the English accent so for others it might be fine. In the end I was entertained – a decent book but it seemed more like an abridged version.
