Whaaaa? I've never heard that done on any audio I've read. (Well, listened to.)

It was a mad dash across the living room going "LALALALALALALALAAAA". It really was odd. Why would they do that?
They are ebil! EBIL, I say!

Flagon says, roar! They should be whooshed!

All the Penguin Classics and the Oxford Classics have a spoilery intro. Does the audiobook match the Penguin edition? If it does, the narrator is just reading what's in the Penguin Classic.

The audiobook does not match the Penguin Classic edition. There is no reason that it should. They are two entirely separate productions.

The point is tho that you can choose to skip the intro or back cover blurb or notes etc. in the print edition. You can't readily do this with the audiobook.

Definately. Especially since it isn't the audiobook of the Penguin book.

I've not had a lot of audiobooks that had a lengthy introduction. So, this was a surprise in two ways (i.e. that there was an introduction and that it was full of spoilers).

I'll need to check if the other audiobook I have at home from the library has the same structure. It's also a classic text.
