Awesome magisterial book, defective audio
What disappointed you about Citizens?
The narrative is spectacular! But as another reviewer noted, the audio file is defective. Mine conked out leaving the last 1/4 of the book inaccessible. Hey Audible, how about fixing it!

Any additional comments?
The audio sounds like it was ripped from a scratched CD. At first it's only occasional, a minor annoyance. Later, though, it becomes more frequent, to the point where sentences and paragraphs can't be made out.
I've tried it on different devices, and the skips are in the same place, so the problem is on Audible's end.
I tried contacting them but have received no response. They're doing this excellent book, and their customers, a disservice by not re-uploading proper audio
