5 stars for the novel, which is wonderfully funny, rich, and strange. I like the dry, slow-paced narration as well.
Unfortunately this audiobook is missing a substantial part of Chapter 4, despite being advertised as "unabridged." I was looking at my paperback copy of the book when I realized that the audio narration ends Chapter 4 far too early, concluding with Dr. Symes saying "You might as well play Parcheesi for 2 years" and then going right to Chapter 5. About 13 1/2 pages in the novel are omitted. All the great stuff about John Selby Dix being better than Shakespeare, and all non-Dix writing mere "foul grunting," is gone.
I didn't check the rest for any missing passages but at least this section is incomplete, which is unfortunate.
