Abridged Version is Terrible

Would you try another book from James Patterson and/or Robert Guillaume and Chris Noth ?

Yes,(surely, for the author, not sure for the narrators) but i hadn't noticed which type of version this was. Will only go with unabridged version next time.

Would you be willing to try another book from James Patterson? Why or why not?

Yes, but i hadn't noticed which type of version this was. Will only go with unabridged version next time.

How did the narrator detract from the book?

Hard to judge. The edited version was done very poorly, which would impact the narrators' experience.

If you could play editor, what scene or scenes would you have cut from Kiss the Girls?

I think too many scenes were either omitted or cut short.

Any additional comments?

DON'T BUY ABRIDGED VERSION EVER…

Disappointment

This book is a copy of the movie not the book. The actual book was a truly suspenceful book. This book even changes who the bad guy is like the movie did,

Great, suspenseful stroy - pity it's abridged!

Although I did enjoy listening to this story, the fact that it's abridged does spoil it a bit. In several places there is a jump in the narrative where you realise that, in the full version of the text, a whole episode will have been fully fleshed out; you get a sense that you're missing out on something. This has the effect of the audiobook losing a sense of the developing tension and suspense, which is an essential element in enjoying thrillers. In the end I wished I'd read the book instead of listening to the shortened version.

Great Story but bits missing from audio book

The book was awsome but there was bit missing from the audio book. I have the hard copy and entire paragraphs were left out along with a couple of sentences here and there.
