Emma Thompson is a wonderful reader, and the book has a timeless quality. It's unfortunate that this version is abridged. As a result, I missed many key points in the story. The central theme, "only connect" is totally missing from this version.

Any additional comments?
Emma Thompson is, of course, sublime, and her voice is not just an instrument but an entire orchestra. However, why was she conned into reading this abridged version of the book. The prose is so sublime, is the exact point of the book. I could see an abridged version of Anna Karenina (I know, shocking, but let me at it), but why Howard's End? I hope this isn't so college students can pretend to have read the book.
Why Emma, why?
