Abridging does not do the story justice.

Would you recommend this book to a friend? Why or why not?

The book, yes. This audiobook, no.

What could Wally Lamb have done to make this a more enjoyable book for you?

Not approve cutting out so much of a favorite book in the audiobook version

Any additional comments?

Use the six hours to start on an unabridged version or read the book. The full text is amazing, but too much is cut out here, leaving the story muddled, jumbled, confusing, and incomplete.
