    I fucked up and missed voting on strength of plot.
    FYI, I edited the poll to add my A vote.

    Heather is the greatest enigma bears know in this world

    Ask not what bears can do for you, but what you can do for bears. (razz)
    When one is in agreement with bears one is always correct. (pablo)

    I still had some honor. I still have some now.

    The best of King here!

    But I would grade "character development" differently between the abridged version and the unabridged version. I could see how someone might grade the ending differently and affect the "strength of plot" differently for the two.
    You know it's not only mad men who listen to fools.

    I've never read the abridged version and don't think I ever will. Would gladly see an expanded version, though.

    I plan to finally read this book in the coming months. Unfortunately it might be after the voting has ended
