Only one thing I'd like to suggest is that you might wanna read the abridged version first so you can enjoy the actual happenings to the fullest; once you have read this one, you can move on to the unabridged.

Sometimes when novels have way too long passages of description, in abrdiged version, they cut these out so the story doesn't drag and only take stuff that is important for the plot and story of the novel. The unabridged versions are as they were written by the authors and hence so full of long descriptions of flowers or gardens or stuff like that which does not have anything to do with the story itself really.

It's very good, although since there is a narration, you tend to feel much farther from the characters as opposed to just reading the events as it happens. I love the way she wraps up everything in the end

Well, yes! That's sort of obvious. I am gonna read the book real soon, and then the book is a great deal tragic - what happened to the author post the publish is sad too. So it kind of compels me!

I have the unabridged version then, I assume. It's in the literal form of the original book. Thanks! Approve
