Purchased this audio book because it is one of my favorite reads. It only has the first and last chapter of the book absolutely not worth the money I paid

Extremely Abridged

To call this abridged is certainly an understatement. Over half the book is left out and most of the key parts at that. Don't waste your time buy the book and actually get the story.
