This version of the book is the abridged version...this means that it will not contain the exact content of the novel and is in fact much shorter than the novel. If you want the full version then you will have to purchase the UNABRIDGED version hahahahhaha sorry Dlaurie2
The book by the way is just ok...nothing spectacular. There are many interesting facts but the book seems very poorly written in spots. Great for keeping you awake while driving long distances though :)
Audio book not the same as the printed version
This audio book was purchased because I needed to get some help reading the novel of the same..This audio book is not the same, it has the same title, author, cover art and dates but it skips chapters, pages and changes viewpoints from the written book. I am very unimpressed with itunes audiobooks.
FURTHER UPDATED AND EXPANDED MEANS ABRIDGED!!! It's still all really good, it's just ABRIDGED. I'm happy with what I spent, but I wish I had gotten the whole thing. Good narrator, good presentation, great thinking. Totally worth it. But I felt a little betrayed initially.
