    "Ugg"

    I couldn't even get past the first half hour, it was just way too boring and the narrator is obnoxious.

    "Loooooooooong"

    It isn't the book or the reader, it is the length of the reading. Normally I enjoy the Unabridged versions but this was a very tough one. This is the only audio book I couldn't finish. As mentioned, usually I am a stickler for the Unabridged, but in this case I would highly recommend the Abridged version!
