Is it the unabridged edition and everything? It seems like a huge book to go on a little game system.

I am going to repair it and buy another one-- this one is so worn out I am worried it will fall completely apart if I am not careful. (It is nearly in half due to the amount of times I've read the 'A Group Which Almost Became Historic' and another page fell off yesterday; some pages are half bound and half not.) Duct tape to the rescue! But I am sentimentally attached to it, so I couldn't bear to get rid of it.
Rose in Misery, I like the Norman Denny translation, but I can't stand the way it's abridged. I think he did a good job with translating the things he didn't cut out/change, though.
