Great story - hate the narrator
I first read this book 20 or more years ago and loved it. It is a hopeful story. At some point I purchased the book on cassettes. The narrator was terrific - those tapes are long gone and I was so excited to purchase the unabridged (although I do think it has some minimal abridgement) audiobook. Unfortunately, the narrator is not as good as the previous person and it did lessen my enjoyment.
