The audiobook consists of 10 disks. Check out unabridged version if you whole novel.

This audiobook isn't the entire book. It's a summarized version. I was wondering why there were only four discs! The little bits in the book, like Madamoiselle LeFarg's new beau and her old one in the realms and everything that sort of foreshadowed towards the next two books is gone, it's been taken out to make it shorter.
I also thought that the norrorators voice way much too high for Gemma, but I got used to her. But for props, the narrorator, was able to do all of the accents and acuired tones for the different characters.
I rate it high because it's a good story regardless, but it's missing the little bits, and I missed them.
