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.

Good for a continuing story.

This was a good continuation for the Dinosaur planet survivors. If you have not read the series, this book will confuse the heck out of you. This story does not stand alone. It is like a chapter of a continuing story. And this would be chapter 6 or 7. If however, you have read all the previous books, (which audible does not have) you will like the story. There is no description of the main characters in this installment. The total story (all the chapters, is quiet well written. It is only hard to follow if you do not have all the books or the proper order for them.
Read it yourself if you can. The performer is rather bland and does not contribute much to the story.

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.

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.

Beware!

What disappointed you about Generation Warriors?

My biggest disappointment was the sound quality of the recording. It sounded muffled and boxy. Anytime that there was any road noise in my car I had a hard time making out the dialogue.

Would you recommend Generation Warriors to your friends? Why or why not?

Well the quality of the recording was just too distracting. It made following the story just that much harder.

What didn’t you like about Constance Towers’s performance?

Because of the sound quality of the recording, it took awhile for the "voices" of the different characters to register. I think if the sound engineering were better, I would have enjoyed the performance just fine.

What reaction did this book spark in you? Anger, sadness, disappointment?

meh

Irritating

This book wasn’t for you, but who do you think might enjoy it more?

The link where I bought this book did not make clear that it was an abridged version or I would NOT have purchased it. I have read and enjoyed this book many times in the hard copy form and was eagerly anticipating enjoying it again in the audible format. There are so many important details missing that the story is almost incomprehensible and certainly in not worth listening to.

Would you ever listen to anything by Anne McCaffrey and Elizabeth Moon again?

Any complete novel by two of my favorite authors would be a joy.

What does Constance Towers bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

Not a damned thing since the story she was given to perform/read is so damned incomplete.
