My bad. I totally missed the part about this download being abridged. I discovered it too late, after realizing several good parts of the book were missing. I've read the harcover many times and it was evident the Audible story had been shortened. The narrator was an overacting dork, growling or yelling his lines throughout the book. It was perfectly obnoxious. Why didn't they stick with Simon Vance, who narrated the first three books in the series? Caveat emptor.
