3.0 out of 5 stars so,so, 2 Jan 2010
This review is from: The Wonderful Adventures of Nils (Hardcover)
This book was one of my first big books as a kid, so I wanted my kids to relive the enchantment and fascination I had experienced then. I shouldn't have gone for the low price, as this is a shortened version of the original and doesn't capture the real spirit of the story. Nice illustrations, easy to read but because of the abbreviation sometimes boring, enumerating the events. This didn't show in the insight you can have in the book before purchase, so I felt deceived in a way after. If you are looking for something short and don't know the original book, quit nice. Else, go for the real thing.

I agree that this comment is fair for any abbreviated books; the problem however is that it has appeared along side other comments for many of the books with title: 'The Wonderful Adventures of Nils' (Amazon bug?) even if these are the full version. better look at the page numbers to understand whether the book you're buying is the full or the abbreviated version...
