Horrible abridgment.

This is not Howard’s End. Maybe a sadist’s abridgment of it. Most of the story is missing.

Incomplete Recording

What would have made Howards End better?

This recording ends in the middle of chapter 10 - this book has about 30 chapters!

What could E. M. Forster have done to make this a more enjoyable book for you?

I wouldn't know, as I have not read the whole book.

Who would you have cast as narrator instead of Alice Johnson?

The quality of the recording sounded amateurish, with echoes permeating the chapters.

If you could play editor, what scene or scenes would you have cut from Howards End?

N/A

Any additional comments?

Any chance of getting the credit I spend on this purchase re-credited to my account? It says the recording is an unabridged recording; yet the recording is incomplete and should be removed from Audible's offerings.

Only half a book

The audiobook only covers the first 10 chapters. Very Disappointing. Should be the whole book
