Sigh. This reading of the Return of the King is from the 1980's editions which have been altered from the 1960's editions that I'm familiar with. While I'm certain that the changes made to the story were well meant they are noticeable and irritating. I would appreciate it if , in the future, Audible would note the edition of the story that is being presented, especially when there are significant differences between the editions.
This re-envisioned telling of Sleeping Beauty satisfied both my need for depth in details and well done characters. Only the end, while the logical conclusion given the characters, felt like a let down. Perhaps it is just a matter of too much happy ending and not enough fulfillment of duty for my Puritanical soul.
Music came in at odd moments and the first time it was almost loud enough to drown out the narrator. The abridging of the story was done well enough but I found I was unsatisfied as I had read the story in full 5 years ago.
I look forward to this story being narrated in an unabridged version.
