Misses so much

I know it is abridged but it misses so much out it's really not worth it. My girlfriend leant me the book and i'll admit l struggled with it so went for the audiobook. Learnt the hard way to never go abridged :-/ so although l still had to read the book it did in courage me to get through the slow start.

Superb story and narration. Both shocking and hilarious all at the same time. Robert Powell really makes the characters come to life.
