I really don't like abridged.

Any additional comments?

abridged chopped up a story that could have been entertaining and left me wanting. I like both authors and have enjoyed most of their books. This was a disappointment.

Who abridged this book?

What disappointed you about Generation Warriors?

The best parts of this book have been abridged out. I am not sure who decides what is worth being left out but all the parts of this book that made it funny and engaging were left out.

Has Generation Warriors turned you off from other books in this genre?

No because I read this genre all of the time. I won't listen to an abridged book again.

TOO much omitted/DON'T WASTE your time/money, READ

In abbreviating this final volume of the Planet Pirates saga a major disservice has been dealt to the author. Much story detail and explanation has been omitted, leaving big gaps that otherwise would have enhanced the overall story. The lost details of Ford's and Dupaynil's journeys in search of connections for the court trial are adventures in their own right, building a strong foundation for the fight against the Planet Pirates. The lost details of Sassenack's and Lunzie's journeys further reduce the overall impact of this conclusion to the series. In addition to the butchery done to abbreviate the audiobook there is also the irritation factor of the narrator's mispronunciation of frequently used words and names. Frankly, if an unabbreviated version cannot be had, you will get much more out of READING the BOOK.

Abridged definitely makes book hard to follow.

This book by McCaffrey and Moon is one of the greats UNTIL someone thought it a great way to save money and cut the c%@£ out of it. If I hadn't been a fan, I would not have been able to follow the chopped storyline into any kind of sense. The narrator was good but the muffled audio quality reduced it to a serious strain to understand. I hope the powers that be (ha ha) decide to remake this beauty and polish it up to meet it's wonderful potential.

good story. Audio not quality

I enjoyed the story and cringed at only having the abridged version available. The audio quality was lower than I'm accustomed to with audio books with the audio sounding like it was filtered by cotton.

more than half the story is missing. bsd quality

unless you already know the story you will be lost. Recording quality is horrible. It sounds like it is broadcasted thru a muffler. What a waste of the narrator's performance of reading.

Poor Audio Quality

It sounds like the audio is playing through a paper towel tube. This is the type of audio quality you would expect from an old cassette tape. Its like they took an old tape and just used the audio instead of trying to find a clear copy or get it rerecorded. If you are the type to follow along with the printed book version(not many are) you will find that there are pieces missing. There are parts of conversations that were skipped over.

Disappointingly uninteresting

Worse than the second book, but at least now I can cross this series off my list. The audio is bad quality and the new narrator changed the main character’s accent from Irish in book 2 to a weird and inconsistent American southern accent. As McCaffrey stories go, which I usually love, plot-wise, this series was disappointingly uninteresting.
