Question

Dh's aunt gave me a bunch of readers digest condensed books. Without sounding like a total airhead...what does that really mean? I understand they are condensed but how?

right now Iam reading The Chamber by Grisham, it is only about a hundred pages. that is a lot smaller than the original. do they just take out the background information and filler and the story stays intact or are they so changed that it is really not worth reading the condensed version?

Hope that made sense.
