      "Nice, but the "Abridged" should be in the title"

      I happen to subscribe to the Kindle edition, mostly just to use it's excellant text-to-speech functionality, but thought this sounded even better. Unfortunately, to my surprise and horror, each Audible issue probably contains less than half of the articles in the latest New Yorker. This issue is missing what is easily the most compelling article - a riveting, in-depth story on the Galleon insider trading scandle and its relation to the mortgage crisis. I hate to imagine what I'll be missing in future issues.

      Furthermore, while the writing is universally world class, the readings are uneven. I find the female reader overly chipper and school-marmish and the male reader wearyingly droll. The Economist hires BBC-quality professionals to read every article, available in their excellant app. I do wish this great magazine would take this excellant concept a little bit further - with better narrators and a complete recording of each issue.
