The story is typical fun Cussler but it feels like major parts are missing in this abridged version. I went and bought the hardcover and I was right the abridgment is not the best and not up to the standards of other abridgments I have heard in the past (blue gold) here on Audible. Fair listen.

loved it! could not stop listening! A fantastic story!! cant wait to listen to the next one!!
I previously had read the book and enjoyed listening to it on a ling ride with the family.
This was more of a synopsis than anovel. we need the original novel. Good narrator.
What made the experience of listening to White Death the most enjoyable?
Good narration, but I prefer Scott Brick's.
What was your reaction to the ending? (No spoilers please!)
Satisfying ending, typical for Cussler.
Have you listened to any of James Naughton’s other performances before? How does this one compare?
Any additional comments?
I found 'White Death' entertaining, but less so than most other Cussler/Kemprecos collaborations. Bit of a rehash of a common theme this time. Still, use of metaphor was superb, as always, and the crew of the Oregon captivated me, as usual.
I am a huge Clive Cussler fan. Although this book follows the typically formulaic approach, which I like, it fell very short in the delivery. It missed the important descriptions and transitions that normally make a Cussler book flow well. The full version may be OK. But this abridged version is not worth the money.
