I loved this book on paper, but could not even listen all the way to the end of the recording. The abridgment eliminated all of the nuance, personality and motivations of the brilliantly written characters. The story no longer engages, no longer even makes sense. If only someone would record an unabridged edition!
"A wonderful book ruined"
I have read this book many times it is one of my favourite books. I was so very disappointed to find that the abridgement has cut the very soul from story and sadly Michael York's beautiful voice came across as distant and uncomfortable.
