  2. Question

    What does “unabridged audio adaptation” mean? I usually don’t see both unabridged and adaptation to describe the same audiobook.

    • Sorry that was unclear. This is a word-for-word reading of the entire original book.

    • Hi Christine,

      This is an unabridged audiobook. The word “adaptation” is meant to highlight Jim’s amazing interpretation of the characters. In his reading of this classic, he uses different voices and dramatic inflection to bring each character and the story itself to vivid life.
