Well, this bites! I got a digital copy from my library and after 6 hours of listening to the audio it just ended.
Well, I guess, I should have paid better attention to what I check out from the library. Apparently, the library only has the abridged version. SIGH!!!
Even though I didn’t get the full version of this book I was not feeling it. I felt like something was missing… what was missing? I’m not sure but I needed more.
I have not seen the movie adaption of this book but I’m interested in watching it. Guess, I’ll need to check if it’s on Netflix.
