It's a great idea...
But this abridgement is poorly done. Large sections of the story are omitted. Dove audio is not my favorite vendor. They take a slash and burn approach to editing.
But I still love these very predictable stories from Anne McCaffrey. Find the books and read them as a guilty pleasure. But avoid these recordings. Or at least wait until somebody does an unabridged version.

The story is still enjoyable
However, as others have commented, the abridgement is very poorly done, with characters making reference to comments made earlier in the story that were cut, and, in one case, a character "replies" to a question that was not asked.
As this is a story I know very well (I have lost count of the number of times I've reread it), I'm frustrated by the editing. While some of the edits don't noticeably interrupt the flow of the tale, others are so glaringly obvious, I find myself pausing the book for a period of time.
