I am not the type of person that is pretty easy to please so I rarely complain or write negative reviews. However, in this situation I feel it is necessary to warn potential buyers.
I have read and enjoyed Master of the Game many times in the past. To this day it is one of my favorite novels. Sadly, this abridged version of the story completely brutalizes both the plot and character development of an excellent story. Many major events, conversations, and even characters were cut out of whole parts of the novel. In many situations the conversations that were omitted were later referenced. This would have created a great deal of confusion for me if I had not read the book.
If you are a fan of this novel and simply want a quick recap or summary of the main events then this book might suit you. I would recommend that Sidney Sheldon fans that have never read Master of the Game not waste their time or money on this horrible abridgment.
A better abridgement. The plot, as abridged, was difficult to follow. I had read the book years ago and wanted to refresh my memory before I listened to "Mistress of the Game". I'm still unelightened. I ended up buying the book on Kindle to read.
Something from the Preston-Child series.
None! The scenes are deeply cut already! I would actually ADD some scenes.
Couldn't stop listening
Both the twins..They were so different, But so much alike!
He did a very good job..
I laughed got upset and was upset when I had to stop listening..
This book was recommended by friends on facebook..What was interesting is that both male and female enjoyed the book. It had action,heartache,greed and love! Will listen to it again!
I have read this book a few years ago and absolutely loved it but unfortunately it is condensed and missed integral parts = might have been better if I hadn't already read it
