Abridged Audiobook a Disappointment
The abridgment of the book made this far too short and did the book a disservice. Having John de Lancie and Majel Barrett read the roles of all characters, as well as provide narration, was distracting. The music (intended, I assume, as dramatization of the story) was likewise distracting.
The abridgment of the book resulted in the ending being far too sudden. I have read the book, and felt the audiobook's abrupt ending made the story seem juvenile in its presentation. I felt bad for author Peter David.
I would be willing to try another of Majel Barrett and John de Lancie's "performances" only because the number of audiobook versions of Star Trek books are surprisingly few, given the large quantity of books written for the different incarnations of Star Trek.
The characters in the audiobook were not a problem for me.
I purchased this abridged audiobook because there are, sadly, too few audiobook versions of Star Trek books. I much prefer unabridged audiobooks, and was very disappointed with the dramatization of this particular book. I would rather have unabridged Star Trek audiobooks made available and narrated without the distracting music and dramatization of the story.
Fun Story about Q
Always enjoyed the tape version until my tape died. Glad I found the Audible version for my library.
Laxwana Troi of course when she was ready to take the chain saw to Q!
