Do NOT buy this version!!

Would you try another book from Elizabeth Peters and/or Samantha Eggar?

I adore Elizabeth Peters. I am annoyed and upset that I wasted a credit on an unabridged version. What a waste of money and time. I know the story very well and kept thinking the recording was skipping.

You didn’t love this book... but did it have any redeeming qualities?

This is an abridged version (which I somehow failed to realize before I purchased it). Waste of money. I do not understand why they are even put out at all unless it is to be dishonest. Very disappointed. Save your money.

Any additional comments?
