The thing that is basically messing up the whole experience of this book is the abridged version. The book in itself is very good, and I have read it multiple times. However in the abridged version a lot of stuff is missing....
Basically a lot of the extra stuff that I felt gave the book its "punch" when I was reading it, is no longer there.
I do recommend that you read this book, I do NOT recommend that you get this abridged version.
I quite enjoyed this story, despite it's shortness, but where it fell apart a bit for me was the choppiness. It is made up of many little vignettes that - although linear - jump both time and POV. If I was reading instead of listening, this would be easy to follow - but since I consumed this book in audio format, it caused confusion for me a few times.
Overall, I enjoyed the introduction to the universe but if I were to re-visit this novella I would read it instead of listen.
Read this several times, nice to have it read to me. Have book 3, but am hoping that book 2 comes out in Audible before I listen to it. I am really enjoying Audible and am adding a sandisk to my electronics so I can listen more often.
