Excellent performance, captivating story

I had heard of this book but was wary of abridged versions because I thought they might be missing something important. All audio versions appear to be abridged in one form or another and I needed an audiobook, no time to read. I took a chance on this version because I thought the narrators voice was particularly suited to the story. It did not disappoint. A wonderful story, quite relevant today, beautifully performed by the narrator. Just altered enough so as to be understandable to modern listeners - but not so much that it would lose it’s edge by getting dulled down with modern lingo. The essence of the story seems extremely well preserved and presented, suitable for both young and old alike.
