For audiobooks from now on I'm going to try and select that version because that is part of my rating, the audio quality, reader, production, all that jazz.
So I dinged this, not terribly so, for being abridged (my fault for not checking) yet for some reason full of unnecessarily long musical interludes. Not the standard ones that let you know to change the disc, oh no, these came at the end of sections, which I could only take to mean they were the end of chapters. Also the "added" conversation with the author was slightly unnecessary as it didn't go over any ground that hadn't just been read to me.
That said, Powell does a great job of recreating her project and not just rehashing her blog from her Julie/Julia project. She also does a great job reading. And kudos on the excellent French pronunciations. I might pick up the print one day, to see what I missed.
