The Witching Hour

I give this work one star because there is no way you can do this book justice in 3 hours. It was my fault for not checking to see if it was abridged or unabridged before I purchased it. I feel like I've wasted my credits. I will NOT do that again. I'm not sure why Audible wastes time on abridged works anyway.

Different kind of regret

I should have purchased the unabridged version but I could not find it on this site. Nevertheless I loved it. I just wish that I had heard the full context of the book. There was a different voice everytime a considerable amount of the book was summarized. I have since learned my lesson never to purchase anything unabridged. I am already depriving myself of physically reading it so I might as well get the entire version.
