And yet another gutted Stewart abridgement :(

Would you try another book from Mary Stewart and/or Theodore Bikel?

Totally! Due to eye fatigue I can't read print anymore, and abridged versions of such great books are disappointing.

What did you like best about this story?

Stewart writes beautifully.

Was The Wicked Day worth the listening time?

Yes, as at least it gave me a preview of the series. I'll still have to read it in print, though, which is disappointing since I wanted the audio books to save me on eye fatigue.

Any additional comments?

They should create full, unabridged versions of Mary Renault's and Mary Stewart's books. These abridged versions are unsatisfying.

This is abridged

I did not catch that this is abridged. And it is very abridged. Barely makes sense. Which is a shame, because I know the story to be good.

Also, I really do not like this narrator. His reading style is ponderous. Very strange cadence. Reading the story, not narrating.
