NOT THE FULL BOOK!! Download other version!

This is my favourite Martin Keyes book - I have read it numerous times so was happy to get an audio version of it. However, I kept feeling like parts of the story were missing and I was surprised when I was half way through the audio file already and lots of the story hadn’t even been started! I finally got out my paperback to compare and sure enough - tons was missing!! Some pages just have a sentence or 2 missing but in other places, whole chunks of the story aren’t there!! There was NO note anywhere that this wasn’t the complete book and I’m quite frustrated and disappointed that this would even be an issue! Who would only want to hear half a book? I chose this version because I prefer this narrator and assumed (obviously incorrectly) that the difference between books (6 hours vs 20 something) was just a typo.
This is a fabulous book and this chopped down version doesn’t do it justice. If you want to listen to the full, hilarious yet provocative book, download the other file and ignore this one. What a waste of time! Grrr

disjointed,didn't like the use of precis style

This book wasn’t for you, but who do you think might enjoy it more?

unsure

What was most disappointing about Marian Keyes’s story?

good story but didnt like the way it was written, almost as if the speaker was speaking english as a foreign language

You didn’t love this book... but did it have any redeeming qualities?

quirky

Any additional comments?

disappointed as I am a huge keyes fan
