Entertaining listen for Ape fans!
Would you consider the audio edition of Planet of the Apes to be better than the print version?
I have not read the print version of Planet of the Apes, but the flow of the audio book is excellent so I doubt the print version would be any better.
Any additional comments?
The book is fairly different from the original film franchise and the ultimate twist at the end had me smiling. I really enjoyed listening to this book and while a big fan of the films, was pleased that it offered something slightly different.

A modern masterpiece, The Godfather is a searing portrayal of the 1940s criminal underworld. It is also the intimate story of the Corleone family, at once drawn together and ripped apart by its unique position at the core of the American Mafia. Still shocking 40 years after it was first published, this compelling tale of blackmail, murder, and family values is a true classic.
DO NOT MISS THIS!

Great story and brilliant narration
If you are a fan of the film you'll love it and if not you'll still love it.
