Merlin the Enchanter, prophet and visionary, adviser to kings: Here is the story of how he rears Arthur, the future Christmas King, in remote secrecy, safe from the warring kings and Saxons who plot against his father, King Uther. Told in the voice of Merlin himself, this tale bristles with all the suspense and intrigue of fifth-century Britain. Ambrosius is dead, having brought order and progress to the kingdom during his reign. Now the regional kings look to the succession, and Merlin watches and waits, always providing for the security of the boy his prophesies promise will become the greatest king of all.

Abridged is right! I tried to follow along with the book and had a really hard time. They include all the events, but skip so many details, I was left flipping. A LOT. Especially when Merlin is traveling, and when he is with Arthur. I gave up following before I was half way through. The narration was ok, but not the best I've heard. He doesn't do differnt voices too well, in my opinion.
The Hollow Hills
This is not just abridged but extremely abridged. You lose all the detail and language of Mary Stewart and are left with the basic plot with none of the nuance.
Merlin from Excalibur’s what a awesome idea
