I give only 3 stars for this book, part 2 of a trilogy which I'll probably not bother to download the final part of.
What disappointed me?
This book had a different narrator from the first book so several of the names were pronounced differently. I found this very irritating and was constantly checking in my head the old and the new pronounciation to ensure I was following the correct character. Probably an odd quirk of mine! I did get used to this fairly quickly but it did detract from my enjoyment.
I also felt that this abridged version lost some of the 'padding' and detail that made the first book come alive.
Although I enjoyed the story I would probably be inclined to buy the writen book rather than bother with the audio version if I decide to get the final part of the story as part 3 is also an abridged version.

I love the narration of this book. Samantha Bond is a huge improvement on the man who read the first in the trilogy and really brings the character of Somea to life. Sadly this is an abridged version of the story and lacks all the detail that made the original novels worth reading. 10 out of 10 for the narrator, 0 out of 10 for whichever publisher decided that a shorter version of the book would be a good idea. I have no intention of risking further disappiointment with the abridged version of book 3
