I found a copy of this audiobook at the library and was so excited to read it that it wasn't until I put it in the CD player in my car that I realized it was an abridged version. At that point it was too late and I just had to listen to it.
I really enjoyed the book. It is very whimsical and fantastical. I loved the narration. An interesting story that is emotional and philosophical. The language used is fairly simple. It's no wonder so many French classes use this in their curriculum; I can see how it would be relatively easy to translate.
A very good story that is entertaining and gut-wrenching.
Now I have to track down an unabridged copy to read the whole thing.
