I have been a fan of the Cat Who books for years and have enjoyed reading & listening to many of them. This book however is missing a very important section of the story. Because that section is omitted the listener is asking what happened? At first I thought I had just missed it but upon backtracking I found that it just wasn't there. I hope the rest of the Cat Who books are not the same way. I was very disappointed in the way this book was abridged.
This series is wonderful and I only listen to the audiobooks as a way to pass the time while doing chores but this is the first time that I have listened to the abridged version of a title. Since I have never not liked a title before, I didn't read the reviews - big mistake. Now I wish that I did because it would have save me a credit. This version is horrible - I felt as if a huge pieces of the story was missing and they were never explained. I felt confused almost the whole time. The story jumped from everyone trying to guess who a mystery woman was to her writing a letter to Qwill when she left town. It was so bad that I stopped listening to it!
Great Story! Great Author! Terrible abridgment! I have this on cassette edtion and i felt like I missed part of it! Please get more UNabridged Cat who books
The characters become like comfortable old friends,spending a relaxing afternoon with them is delightful. Thank you for yet another great and enticing read. Iam reading all of them again.😂
If I had been more careful and noticed that this was a very abridged version. A 7 hour book is trimmed to less than 3. Too many keys scenes missing, including one that is critical to figuring out the ending.
Death of a Policeman by M.C. Beaton
The narrator was very good, but impossible to fix a badly chopped up book.
I have read the book. It was great. I do plan to buy the abridged version and enjoy it.
