I really enjoy this book and was looking forward to listening to it. One of the best things about Aaron Allston is the sly humor that he sneaks into his stories, as well as the round characters he creates. Both were left out of the abridged version in order to ensure that the story remained coherent given the time limitation. It was like eating food without salt or spices. I was really disappointed. I'm giving it three stars, because it's a great book and story, but I felt like the abridged audio version was a let-down.

This should not have been abridged. To much left out. Terrible book. No recommendation

the narrator was able to convey the adapted story in a way that does not diminish from the full story of the beginnings of Wraith Squadron.
there are a number of obvious differences between the original book and this adapted version but if I hadn't read the real books numerous times I would accept this version as a good story in its own right.
the omitted sections do not detract in any way from future aspects of this storyline or indeed from the set of x-wing books.
I am happy to recommend this book to anyone who wants to learn what the real star wars time line was supposed to be like before Disney messed with things
