Don't pay for chapter headings

This is not an Abridged version of a book. It's more like the CliffsNotes in outline form.
If you're studying for class, skim the damn book you read. If you're interested in the topic, don't pay for this less than nothing short piece of dry trash.

Narration: Clear and unhurried.

Content: Summary appears to describe the key elements and structure of the story. I am inclined to now listen to the full length version.
