Abridgement Too Far

I've been trying for a couple of months to get an AudioBook version of The Amazing Adventures of Kavalier & Clay and have only found one edition on CD, an abridged version. I yesterday discovered that this is the only commercial AudioBook version and no unabridged version exists. Bummer! I won't buy, read or listen to abridged books. I do understand that audio books were originally abridged to make them more affordable. This is no longer a problem as MP3 compatible CD players are now very common.

As much as I hate abridged books it is especially galling is that the publisher would choose to abridge a 2001 Pulitzer Prize winning novel. The book won for what it is--either read that or don't bother.
