    "It is NOT unabridged."
    Any additional comments?

    Walt Whitman's words and Ed Begley's reading are wondrous, sublime, and powerful. But this audiobook lasts a mere 43 minutes, which immediately tells you it is *not* an unabridged version of the book.

    "Good reading when it isn't glitchy"

    Impeccably read, but poorly edited: tons of background hiss and even glitches skipping several seconds.

    "Well done, Walt Whitman and Ed Begley."

    Ed Begley performed beautifully but titles of poems could have been added to the narration

    "Begley helped me understand "

    The musical power and large hearted was of Whitman's poems. Wish it were twice as long!
