Who in their right mind would abridge a book like this! It's one of the funniest books I've ever read - and I always loan to women friends who are having guy problems, they laugh and they learn. After all, the best humor has a lot of truth in it. Abridging this is like cutting out half of a joke and still expecting to be funny. I guess it's my fault. I was so happy to see this audiobook available that I didn't stop to check to see if it was abridged. Don't do it mon!
Burrough's Mars novels may be my favorite escapist literature of all time. I was not prepared for a reading where the reader adopts a broad southern accent, I guess because John Carter is from Virginia. I would have much preferred a simple straightforward reading. The affected accent is very annoying and detracts from the enjoyment of the story.
