I bought the unabridged audio version, so I didn't miss a thing from the print version, which we were reading as a book club. It was a long book, so being pressed for time, I needed to be able to be able to get through it while doing things that I wouldn't be able to do while "reading" and vice versa.
Can't think of any other book I would compare it to.
Can't tell you my favorite scene without it being a spoiler. But trust me, when you get to it, you'll know. It was the favorite scene of everyone in my book club who read the book.
I absolutely wanted to listen to it all in one sitting, it was that good. But I didn't opt for the abridged version, which I could have listened to in one sitting because I didn't want to miss any of the story. I'm glad I didn't. It was a book club selection, and I wanted to be able to fully participate in the discussion..
I was amazed at how well Wally Lamb is able to get into the mind and emotions of women. I'm really looking forward to reading more of his work.
