Sad it was abridged.

I would not have bought this if I had realised it was abridged. So many good bits of the book were missing, so much so that the characters were thin and unconvincing. Can't imagine why Anne McCaffrey allowed this to be published. Sound quality not good.

Poor sound quality

Copy muffled poor sound quality. Otherwise a great listen. I would of preferred a unabridged version instead of a abridged one.

Disappointed

Didn’t realise this was abridged. One of my favourite stories, messed up. Narrator read really fast, and being abridged the story was clunky and rushed. Very disappointed

Love the book, hate the abridged version

Very disappointed that it’s not the full book, this should be noted in the description, so as not to disappoint when you purchase the book!!!!!

OLD AUDIO

Although I love this series of books by Anne McCaffrey, it was a bit disappointing to realise (after I had purchased them) that the audio was a little distorted with age and seemed very rushed. It did not completely diminish my love of these books but then again, I go back and re-read them every few years so they are very familiar which helped. This audio is for people who know the book only -- for first time listeners, buy something else and read the series for yourself...

One of my favourite series

I love this story despite it being abridged. The narrator speaks very quickly and this detracts from the flow. Or maybe its the abridgement that interrupts it. I'm happy enough but glad I didn't pay full price. I move on to the second in the trilogy hoping the story will overcome the issues. This one managed it, just....

Very disappointed as it’s not an unabridged version

I love this book, but this is a disappointment. I don’t think the narrator is very good and the book is not the full version

Way too fast.

I live the actress and her work, but she reads too fast. I adored this book when it was first released, but Barbeau is head first in a race I lose to the finish.
