The narrator is great here, but the actual abridgement is clumbsy and confusing. Key events are referred to, but the event itself (e.g. the folk story of the man who couldn't marry because he was already married to another) is cut.
I love this story, book and audiobook. This abridgement, however is a painful and detracting cutting. I believe a good abridgement could be made, but this is not it.

This version is anything but enchanting! Unless, of course, the reader has the power of discernment to make sense of the cavernous gaps. I would discourage anyone from buying this version. Wait until the unabridged version is available. This is simply not worth the time and money.

Boring!!! Unimaginative, dull, annoying. This is a random and entirely unimaginative use of characters from Russian mythology combined with a totally unimaginative use of the worn out scheme: "characters coming from past/fairytale to our world". Combined with banal language and banal love story. Not worth your money.
