RE: Audiobook Abridgment

Sometimes the wonderful nuances of a tale well told are lost in shortened versions.  My youngest is in his "pirate" stage, and even at six, he's willing to sit and listen to the original version of Treasure Island.  Whether it's having a family member reading it or the tale itself, he's comprehending words for a much higher level than 6 years old.  He also asks for the original version of Peter Pan almost nightly - my oversized picture book from the 60's.  The colorful language is superior to the abridged version that Disney now puts out with an accompanying cassette.

If life's too busy for a good, long read, something needs to be cut out to make time!

I don't like abridged books audio or otherwise. But, I think I'd enjoy actually abridging books.

I know that sounds like a contradiction, but I love to read entire books and then tell people about them in summary. It sort of makes sense...

Y'all are funny! I could write synopses all day. I love condensing words. There's something satisfying about getting more out of less.
