Completely Useless as an Audio Book

OK, I really wanted this collection but the way it's arranged, without a pdf file for where stories begin and end, it's completely useless. Some stories have multiple parts so as you start listening to a story, it may be 30 minutes or a couple hours and spread over 5 parts. And if miss a section, there is no way of knowing which part of which story you are in.

As an audio book, it doesn't work. I asked audible for a program---anything. They haven't got one. So you haven't even a list of titles (in order) to guide you. And, as it comes in several large files it's impossible to find anything.

That's a shame. If only there was something that indicated that X story is in Part 3, second section, you could find it!

No, sorry. I have to ask for a refund on this as it's really not useable without a program.

A nice way to get the feeling of Faulkner

I really liked the narration, different people make the stories sound more lively. Also, i have tried to read/listen to Faulkners novels and could quite pick my way through the. The short stories are a nice compromise, maybe now that I am used to his manner, i will be able to enjoy the longer genre.

Thank you very much Audible!
