I should have paid attention to it only being 6h 02m long.. I have this translation and for the most part it follows exactly.. For that alone I give the single star. However, this audio book version skips entire chapters.. I'm trying to actually read the book but wanted use the audio book for my long 5 hour drive to work. It's my first time reading the novel so skipping entire sections does me a great disservice.. For which I take back my star.. :-/
