Kate Johnson
Kate Johnson asked:

The edition I am currently reading online was published in 1965 and is an abridged edition. It's only 365 pages long, so I'm wondering, is it worth my while to actually get a hold of a copy of the unabridged version? Thank you!

Kateryna Krivovyaz It depends on your purpose. If you just want to read through it briefly or to have complete experience. I personally recommend you to read a complete version of this indisputable classic.
Kate Johnson Thank you all so very much for your thoughtful answers. I've chosen to stop reading this version and wait until I get the full edition. You've all made great points, and I shall take them to heart!
Thank you again,

Ps: I'm reading it for the experience, and not for some kind of test. Purely for illumination.

Ross Mcelwain Certainly. I can't really imagine how you could get the full effect of this book from an abridged version. The sheer length is a major factor in its success - reading it is at once wearying and stimulating (not necessarily in the ways you might think), which puts you into a kind of delirium.
