I love Martin Cruz Smith books and especially Gorky Park
I hated the narration by Henry Strozier. It is a pity that Henry did not find out the correct pronunciation for the Russian words he was using. I cringed. After living in Moscow for time I felt like he sounded like a tourist - destroying the Russian language. I also felt that he could have given more life to the characters. He sounded as if he was just reading the book rather than reading it to an audience.
I made the mistake of assuming that the narration would be done by the same person as the previous titles. I was really disappointed to hear a different voice.
The abridged version is really chopped up. I thought that there was a problem with my ipod until I saw that this is an abridged version. I have read the books as well bought them through audible and luckily I remembered what was happening as this version of the story is terrible. A pity because it is a good read.
