On the Edge… the audio version.

Posted by TacieJ on March 9, 2012 in literature, reviews |

About 2 months ago, my girlfriend started reading Richard Hammond’s On the Edge.  She kept reading bits to me until I could take it no more – about 10 minutes – and went off an bought my own copy. Needless to say it took me awhile to crack the spine (figuratively… I like to keep my books as pristine as possible) even though she kept quoting bits to me. And then I read a bit, and then a little bit more not getting very far. So a couple of days ago I bought the audio version, only after checking to make sure the voice on the other end of the earphones was Richard.  Unfortunately it is an abridged version.  I have 2 problems with abridged version.  1) Bits are missing. and 2) if the author had wanted those bits missing he (or she) wouldn’t have written them in the first place.  How do they know what I will think is important? So basically I get annoyed.  And having read the 1st couple of chapters, I could see out what was missing right off the bat. Oh well.

Ok, not really Richard Hammond.  Richard Hammond’s book On the Edge: My Story.  And it really wasn’t a sound sleep, it was more like a doze and I was woken up when the book knocked me in the face.  Thank God it was a paperback. So obviously I haven’t gotten very far, page 6 or so.   Here is the publisher’s description…
