Thanks, unfortunately I have a subscription with the UK branch of Audiable, 15 quid a month gives me Two free downloads.. so I may just have to stick it out..... I have mailed the UK branch who responded
Thank you for your enquiry.
There are a number of reasons why titles are not available on our site. It could be that no audio version exists or, if it does, the author or publishers may not have released the digital download rights (they are negotiated separately from book and CD rights). Since our inception in the UK we have added around 35,000 titles to the site and now have working relationships with all the major producers of audio titles. I am therefore confident that if we do not currently have a title on the site then it is only a matter of time before it will be available through Audible UK so it is worth checking the ‘New Releases’ tab whenever you visit audible.co.uk.
I have also forwarded your request to our content team to see if we are able to get the UK rights for this title.
So why is there a English version of the unabridged book on a German site? I assume they are the same company, just different branches....
I have mailed back that there is a version and that the Wee Free Men is only in abridged on the site to them.
I await their response to my reply to this with baited breath!
