This is an abridged version

Have you listened to any of Bill Oddie’s other performances? How does this one compare?

Bill Oddie does a good job, but I grew up with the Maureen Lipman version and that's untouchable for me.

Any additional comments?

This is not unabridged, as advertised. It is heavily edited and misses all of the books wonderful humour.

This is NOT by Maureen Lipman, but Bill Oddie

If you came here from Amazon and expected this to be the version by Maureen Lipman, because you clicked on the link from the Maureen Lipman version, this is not. The link from Amazon is wrong and you may waste your money if you proceed, I did! Very unimpressed.
