Abridged to the point of NO content

The abridgment of this text is criminally short. Unfortunately, I bought this on my mobile phone and didn't see how short it was, or I would have known better. There isn't even enough content here for a Cliff's Note. In my opinion, it is extraordinarily irresponsible of Audible to be selling such an incomplete version of the text. Massie's books are great - this version does him a HUGE disservice.

The only good thing I have to say about this is that the reader's voice is good. Pronunciation isn't great, but tone is lovely. Otherwise, this is a total waste of money.

Way too abbreviated...with no unabridged option

To cut this book down to one hour is horrible. I'm so disappointed in this hack job and even more disappointed that there is not an unabridged option.
