This book was just about what I expected, if now better! I'm so happy I was finally able to read it fully. It is an abridged version so I can't help but to wonder if there isn't something missing or far too altered that could have made me give this an even higher rating. Because of this I really want to read the unabridged version. Still, this was a monumental read in so many ways and now that I finished it I can't help but to feel sad.
