Wait for the Unabridged version
I've read every bit of Cornwell that I can lay my hands on and have been waiting months for Sword Song to become available in the US. I didn't even think to look and missed the fact that this was the abridged version. What a disappointment to wizz through this in just a few hours and know that the entire time you are missing the real meat of the story. I'll be buying the unabridged version when it becomes available. I'd advise waiting until then to spend your time and money on this one.

Wait for the unabridged version
The flavor of the book was lost in the abridgement. The story is cut to the battle scenes, good stuff -- but not enough. Wait for the unabridged version.
The reading performance was excellent. The story great. I just missed the sauce that goes with the meat. Oh, and the abridged version is edited down from the unabridged version. You can hear audio glitches where the butchery was performed.
