Disappointing

Really need to read the unabridged version. This version leaves out important parts of the story.

Wonderful Story

Would you consider the audio edition of Fame to be better than the print version?

Not better than the print version since it was Abridged.

Any additional comments?

Just disappointed the whole Firstborn series is abridged. Thankful the others are not!

As expected! Good story

Good book of course as I love this family but not sure why they are so broken up. Too much money for a 4 HR book

Missing Chapters

These versions are missing critical chapters to the Baxter storyline. This book in particular is missing 4 chapter that give you more background to the actual story. This book only follows Dayne's story. It leaves out critical information regarding his stalker and birth family.

Not K.K. Best

This wasn't one of the best. I LOVE KK! It could be since this is an abridged version. I love this narrator.

Does not follow along with the book.

I listened to the audio version while following along with the book and the audio does not match up with the books. There were often times complete paragraphs missing. Disappointed.

I am becoming a better person

...... by the stories I hear in this series. Choices are made every day, but how often do we really listen and wait for God to help us with the right answer. Good, good book.
