©1992 Dale Brown; (P)2009 Phoenix
A good book, but a terrible audio-book. Ruined by a clumsy and comical narrator. Awful accents, mumbled parts and stereotypical voices poorly thought about.
The narration was pathetic, like a cartoon - if this is what "abridged" means then I will never read another.
Perhaps there is an unabridged version as I have read other Dale Brown works and quite enjoyed them.
I really hate abridged books...get us the full version. I really enjoy Dale Brown's Dreamland books.
"Abridging really detracted from the story"
I've read the book and they have cut so much from it that you lose too much of the plot.
Read the book or find it unabridged somewhere.
An abridged version that lasted barely two hours. It was so tactical that it would have made a good CONOPS vignette for a new weapon system -- 25 years ago. LtCol McLanahan fights a B2 with more fantastic capabilities than a 50 plane gorilla strike in a SE Pacific scenario....
"Don't buy this! Buy the unabridged instead"
This is probably a great book in the unabridged format, but absolutely none of that is eveident here. Whoever edited this cannot have actually listened to the final product, it is so jarring, each time a new section comes on, I had to take a couple of minutes and try to infer what had happened. This was even the case with major plot points. Avoid this! Buy the unabridged instead.
