UMM Is this A Mistake??

Like a previous reviewer stated the narration is wonderful!!! However the story is cut off midway and goes into another story about a young lady who wants to be a horse trainer but it definitely isn't the epic fantasy book I purchashed. This story is also cut off to talk about some young guy on a space station creating a holographic fantasy girl who to his surprise ends up assigned to his space station and then even that gets cut off. I wanted a 3 hour story about a girl who heard dragons this is definitely a serious let down:(

This recording is not what it should be. First of all, I want to say that the narration by Constance Towers is wonderful. This made the errors in this recording even more disappointing. The story about Aramina is chopped off mid way and another unnamed story starts in the middle of that story.
It is a mechanical error. The full story of Aramina is not on this recording.
