Reviews

No track titles

(1 stars)

I downloaded the entire 5 volume collection, only to discover that volumes 3-5 have no track titles (they don't show the name of the story/poem--they just say track 1, track 2, etc.), which means that you have no way to intelligently skip ahead to a specific poem or story. For a regular audio book this wouldn't matter so much, but in a collection like this, it makes the audio book almost unusable.
