Publisher's Summary

Nancia's vision of human nature was shattered on her first voyage. Now she's bound for NX-928, and the last thing she needs is a "brawn" partner like Forister - he's the epitome of cynicism. Nevertheless, the idealistic Nancia and the worldly-wise Forister must band together to save the galaxy. This tale is narrated by television and stage actress Constance Towers ( Capitol).

abrided

I only buy books I know I love and will want to read over and over. It is horribly disappointing when I end up with a butchered version.

Lost to editing and bridged recordings

Wonderful writing by Anne and recording by Constance (love her voice) but lost and demeaned by editing. I have read all Anne McCaffreys' works, she will be missed, and so I am biased against this recorded edition.

POORLY ABRIDGED - Phoenix Books Strikes Again!

I really enjoy this book (Kindle), and try to purchase / re-listen to as many excellent audiobooks as possible, however this book is Abridged (which I didn’t see in description, or on cover photo) and very poorly done at that.

So far every single book I’ve tried from Phoenix Books is also poorly transferred to audiobook format. I wish Audible a) specifically listed Un/Abridged status in description, & b) included Publisher (of Audiobook) to help us pre screen purchases.

Requesting refund!

Overedited!

I love the 'Brainship" series! The Abridged versions are awful & too much of the story is lost. Anne McCaffrey's books are well read & well loved over most of the world. How about offering us the Unabridged versions for a change???

Abridgment was actually an improvement...

I remember reading this book years ago and not liking it as much as the other books in the series. Due to scenes with sexual and emotional abuse, and occasional racist and sexist remarks, I couldn’t read through it without either pitying or raging against the characters. This recording edits out most of those scenes without removing plot points, and actually makes the book more enjoyable, in my opinion. Surprisingly, with all the cringeworthy and controversial stuff cut out, it turned out to be a fairly good detective/spy thriller set in space.

Good book, incomplete audiobook, edited.

I have read the paperback version of this book and I have it on Kindle. Excellent story. This version however is missing parts all over the place. I think in some places, whole pages just might be missing, and in others, paragraphs.

Great conspiracy plot and how things wrapped up so well. Can't wait to read more of this series.
