The story was light and fun and the main character is very well drawn. The narration is excellent until the English reader attempts to do a female American accent. As an American female, I just wasn't buying it. Yet this narration actually won an award as an audio book, so some people obviously thought he did a good job.
But the story itself is fun and the male characters are truly believable as real people, which is pretty rare.
I didn't realize I was listening to an abridged story although I was questioning certain holes in the narrative. By the time I figured it out, I was really ready to be done with these characters. Maybe the unabridged version would have been better, but I can't imagine spending 31 hours with this book. I simply didn't like anyone enough, especially the main character.
