having read the sunbierd and been thrilled by it, i downloaded this audio version to listen to it while travelling.
it has been abridged, and some essential parts removed altogether.
apart from that, the thrill that was conveyed in print is missing. even the despair that gnaws at you while reading it is shallower and more fleeting.
do not take it as a sample of wilbur smith's works. he is far far better than this audiobook is.

This is definatly an abridged version, there is so much missing from this that it is barely recognizable, I read the hardcopy this pales in comparison.

Any additional comments?
To say this book was abridged is th understatement of the year. Cutting so much from this brilliant story is criminal.
Abridged at least 40%. Disappointing. Book should be labelled as abridged at point of purchase
