    "Awful Abridged"

    Terry Brooks first 6 shannara novels are characterized by LONG sweeping plotlines. You simply cannot call 20+ hours of material cut to 3 hours, a story. This book has been turned into an extended summary. To be honest, Abridging has no place in modern audiobooks, but when it's applied to such long works (like Cryptonomicon, or Tom Clancy books), it becomes comical. My question is simple: Why carry these books at all? Are we expected to enjoy 26 hours of The Sword of Shannara, and 24 hours of the Wishsong of Shannara, seperated by THREE of this? Give me a break.

    Would you try another book from Terry Brooks and/or Theodore Bikel?

    Yes


    What reaction did this book spark in you? Anger, sadness, disappointment?

    Disappointment


    Any additional comments?

    I'm not in a hurry to get through the story. This version is. I prefer unabridged versions when I can get them.

    "Waste of Time"

    Do not get this abridged audio, it is a waste of your time. Get the unabridged version that is now finally available. So much is left out, unexplained or just plain chopped up.
