    "An abridged version of Bambi"

    This is an "unabridged" recording of an abridged version of the book. The title is a bit misleading. This is rather unfortunate as most of the powerful imagery was stripped out of this version. This version is closer to the Disney version in tone due to the missing parts. The violent disturbing imagery and the deeper philosophical dialogue that gave the true book its impact and tone have been eliminated. Basically a book suitable for adults has been turned into a children's storybook in this version. It's nowhere near as bad as the Disney adaptation, however.
    I highly recommend reading the original version of the book. It is a truly haunting and beautiful masterpeice of fiction. This recording is anything but that.

    "Abridged!"
    This book wasn’t for you, but who do you think might enjoy it more?

    This is NOT an unabridged story. Very, very disappointed. Though I should have figured that out with the short length. But the word "unabridged" should not be attached to this story, as it is not the original!

    "Good for children and adults"

    An abridge of Felix Salten and unabridged of Janet Schulman version, is my major complaint. Now that aside I love Bambi. It is not what Walt depicted. To me it is an alagory of the time that it was written. It was published in 1929, the author was European. They are already in the Great Depression. Who is the "Hunter"? Do the Leaves depict the fall of the stock market? There is much wisdom here.
