Why was it abridged?

What would have made Last Bus to Woodstock better?

Let the wonderful Kevin Whatley read the unabridged book! I was so excited to see that he was narrating the books on which the tv series he was such a great part of was based, but so much of the book was left out,t hat I couldn't finish it.

Thank you

I enjoyed the look at an other country 's police procedure , in a different time and custom. The fact of Morse letting us see his own human side was touching. But, of course, our hard boiled detective did all of his work being true to the procedure. At the end he goes home by himself... Tired, but true to his office.
