Just figured a quick Poll might be interesting. I got my copy of the Rookie and it was not until I read that Quentin's tattoo read "Shuck You" that this was not quite "The Rookie" I had first listened to. Now I found out later that This was a young adult version of the book released so it was more appropriate for younger people. To that end I have to say I understand where our FDO is coming from. I would agree that the orginal podcasted version had a lot of cursing and graphic content which perhaps is inappropriate for young adults.
That being said, I miss the cursing and graphic content. I miss the commentators talking about planetary nuns at a purist nation rapist convention. I missed all the 'shits' and 'fucks' and 'asses' and the multiple combinations therein. It's what I have grown to expect from a Sigler novel.
SO! for a new discussion: Would anyone be interested in a non-young-adult version of the book? I personally would buy a copy. How bout it junkies?
