    On the day she was abducted, Annie O’Sullivan, a 32-year-old Realtor, had three goals: sell a house, forget about a recent argument with her mother, and be on time for dinner with her ever-patient boyfriend. The open house is slow, but when her last visitor pulls up in a van as she’s about to leave, Annie thinks it just might be her lucky day after all.

    "Shallow and Generic"
    Overall

    This book was not as advertised. I expected more explorations of the PTSD phenomenon and how it affected the protagonist's present life, rather than a long story of a knock-down, drag-out garden variety kidnapping, complete with archetypical male misogynist behavior. Way too much profanity - I don't mind the f-word now and then, when it's appropriate, but when every other word is an f-word or other hostile profanity, used as an adjective by the main character in her therapy sessions, it's way too much. The character's cookie-cutter variety of hostility against therapy and therapists was also very generic and tiresome.

    Added in was the narrator's flat delivery and speed reading. She sounded as though someone was forcing her to read the words and she was just going through the motions. Disappointing, this novel could have been so much more.

    Fight Club, Chuck Palahniuk's controversial and blazingly original debut novel, introduced a fresh and even renegade talent to American fiction, one who has retooled the classic black humor of Terry Southern and Kurt Vonnegut for the lunacy of the millennial age. In this novel, Choke, he gives listeners a vision of life and love and sex and mortality that is both chillingly brilliant and teeth-rattlingly funny.

    Overall

    Will you please stop featuring such appealing novels only available in abridged format? I am continually stumped as to why oh why anyone with a brain would even bother to read an abridged novel. Several times I have found on your site what promised to be a good read, but only available in the abridged version, and I have gone to the competition and rented the unabridged cassettes. Please stop the insanity!
