I wanted to listen to this unabridged - everyone was raving about it - and finally I succumbed to the abridged version offered by Audible. I like Campbell Scott as a narrator, but felt like I was hearing a bookjacket as he read through one obvious hokey abridged plot point after another, with transitions like, "It took ten years to bring these two together...." and finally I switched it off. I then saw the movie, which was great, but now everyone says the book was so much better - the UNABRIDGED book. I'm off to read it in bits and snatches of spare time, since unfortunately it is still not available here unabridged. This is the LAST abridged audio I will ever buy.
