Abridged is not good

I have read every one of Anne McAffery's Dragon riders of Pern books, multiple times. I highly reccomend the written books as the audio quality and abridged nature of this re-telling of her books left me sadly disappointed with the story. I have also purchased Dolphins of Pern, First Fall, and The Girl Who Heard Dragons, and Dragon Singer. As those ones are not abridged I can reccomend them, but you will be missing out on the background that is in the first three book. I gave this 2 stars for the story, basic as it is, is still McAffery's work. If you haven't read any of her works on Pern, please don't judge her by this paltry showing of it.

abridged is bad!

This is an abridged audiobook. That might not be so bad for other Pern books, but this is the first in the series. This is the book that lays the groundwork for the entire series, but unfortunately almost all of the groundwork is summarized in the beginning of the audiobook. I left with a feeling that I had missed a lot of the background information.
