The audiobook was an enjoyable, good start, and I finished it; BUT I could definitely sense that large chunks were missing. A six hour version of a full sized book is not entirely satisfying because the audiobook moves too fast. Even though the French accent was so overdone that it was distracting, I thought the basic storyline was fascinating, intriguing. I have finished the abridged version, but I would still love to get an unabridged version and listen to the whole story.
The story was pretty bad and the narration made it worse, I think this would have been a better read then listen.
This book is a masterpiece because it paints a vivid picture of a mysterious, hidden country; a modern setting that we have seen on television, but could not understand. The human story it tells is universal. If you listen to this audiobook, you will care about the characters, and you will surely recognize people you have known.
If you like visions of different cultures, different time periods,then this book is for you.
