Really! No Index of Speeches? Are you kidding?

Where does The Greatest Speeches of All Time rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

This is a great collection and I love the originality of the recordings. But really, no index of speeches? There are 28 speeches, but no names to the Chapters and no index of speakers. Really an insult to the Audible buyer. I purchased this to hear (not read--there are plenty of compilations) these unique speeches.


Any additional comments?

Audible should provide an index of the speeches (simple PDF list) to purchasers of this item.

Selections based on ease of access

What disappointed you about The Greatest Speeches of All Time?

Only one speech from Martin Luther King (who made all other speakers in the program seem like amateurs) was included, yet Barbara Jordan speaking at the DNC and saying nothing original was included. Barbara Jordan? Obama gave some decent speeches, but one of his boring speeches was chosen. The selection seemed to be based on availability in public domain, perhaps recorded from youtube.The producer did not eve bother to include an intro before the speeches; just recording after recording.


Did the narrators do a good job differentiating all the characters? How?

No narrator. The producer was in too much of a hurry to insert even the speaker names.
