I've read the book, the real book cover to cover MANY times and I can tell you there are missing sections in this production that was not missing in the original sections from the abridged version, and yes, in addition to reading the book, I listened to the original audio several times as well. And I can tell you sections are missing in stories I have heard so far. I got through Chapter 3 and 4 and it does skip sections. In three, it skips from his arrival to the village to his orderly snapping the kids arm. And for chapter 4, it skips air travel, the tourist going to paris part and the first world nations back doors/servants entrance part. More will be listed when I listen no doubt.
The humor has allows been a good mix with the Zombie Apoc and Mike, his family, and BT are just awesome.
I gotta say Trip is AWESOME. That Stoner is just hilarious and to have him come back after his safe arrival to his wife in the last book, I honestly didnt think I'd see him again.
I just like to remember how Mike is so messed up in the beginning. When Ron wouldn't give him the gattling gun, he deliberately damages the front fender. I found that hilarious. Wasnt a moment that moved me, but it was very memorable to me. And of course the Gold coins.
One thing to note. For all you careful listeners, I wish to know if you noticed it too. Is the Dennis in this book the same one that died of some disease in one of Mikes flashbacks. I believe it was the one where Mike, Paul and Dennis go to a concert and get hammered for several days. At the end of the flashback, Mike notes that they never had a get together like that concert and Dennis died of diabetes or something. Or am I remembering wrong?
