This is one of my 2-3 most favorite novels, period. I was excited to find it on Audible and bought it before I realized it is an old ABRIDGED version read by Richard Thomas. OK with Thomas, not with abridgement. McCammon is one of our great prose stylists - it's a crime to chop it up. I'm sure Audible will get the message and produce a full length reading, after the great response to the new rendition of McCammon's Swan Song.
I stopped listening to this one after 20 minutes. I'll wait for the real thing.

What could have made this a 4 or 5-star listening experience for you?
A friend recommended this to me. After listening to the abridged version, I was wondering what he was thinking, because the story was kind of pointless and had a lot of unfollowed threads. Then I scanned a summary on Wikipedia, and I think this thing was abridged with a weed whacker. TERRIBLE job. Audible should drop this version immediately and carry the unabridged version. I feel like I wasted my money.
