Why must it be abridged?
I love this series. Grover Gardner does a perfect job with the narration. When I first heard his voice I thought, "this guy sounds like a smart alec, know-it-all, annoying geek." Since that's pretty much Andy Carpenter in a nutshell it works well and even though Andy is all these things he's still a very likable character. I will never understand the purpose of abridging a book like this. It's not like it's Pillars of the Earth length and they aren't saving any money on CD's when it's sold on Audible.com . If a book needs editing it should be done before it's published. Abridged versions deny the fan base their reasonable expectation to hear the book as the author intended. I know I turned a review into a rant against publishers (for that I apologize) but it's really frustrating to have to pay good money for only part of the story, or interrupt a series by buying the print version and not be able to listen to it during the long commute.

I really hate abridged books. This one, although relatively well done, still leaves the reader wondering about some of the missing bits. Great series, and an entertaining read. I just want it all.
