Starting Chapters for Each Book

Since each part of the audible download begins again with Chapter 1, the chapter information on the page doesn't help a lot. I created my own index. Hope this helps.

Lady Susan (Part 1/Chapter 1)
Sense and Sensibility (Part 1/Chapter 43)
Pride and Prejudice (Part 2/Chapter 10)
Mansfield Park (Part 3/Chapter 15)
Emma (Part 4/Chapter 23)
Persuasion (Part 5/Chapter 41)
Northanger Abbey (Part 6/Chapter 25)
The Watson (Not sure. Should be around Part 7/Chapter 16)
Sanditon (Part 7/Chapter 20)

total waste of my book credit!

the editing on this collection of books must have been done by someone half asleep. the narrator was great but the editing was so bad! first 7 pages of one book was completely missing. there were many spots of throat clearing/repeated/corrected lines. and it was obvious, by the great change in the character's voice, where 2 seperate readings of the same line had been spliced mid sentence. I hope I can get my money back.

wouldn't download

I tried several times to download onto my phone and every time there was an "error". The whole thing was about 2 gigs and I had well over 5 gigs of space on my phone and yet it wouldn't download.

I guess it was too good.to be true. Don't bother with this title - not worth the time.

Unforgivable Technical Difficulties

It's Jane Austin so it's brilliant. There is however a good reason that it is so cheap.

The performer is good, though her British accent sounds overly studied. Her worst sin is her hard-to-listen-to squeaky, broken, daft voice used for all the unappealing, unintelligent characters. She also, inexplicably uses a version of this daft voice for Lizzie Bennett?! What?!

She reads some of the stable characters: Jane Bennett and Elinor Dashwood with a plodding, unpleasant gravitas.

There's the tiny, but always distracting for me, affectation of her pronunciation of the word "room." She pronounces room "rum," flat out, like an American saying "rum" 85% of the time.

However, the technical difficulties are unforgivable, ergo the one star review.
There are 325 audio chapters, none of them labled, so you cannot pop into the book you want. You must fast forward through, chapter by chapter, and listen to the beginning of chapters as you go, to figure out which book you're in. If you do not yet know Austen's works, this is no way to introduce yourself to them.

The book, after months of owning it, has never downloaded completely, so if I turn the Audible app off, once I turn it on again, and try to listen to this book, it starts its interminable downloading process from word one, so that it's necessary to fast forward from chapter one once again. For this reason, it's a book you cannot listen to on the road unless you want to use up all your data since it's constantly downloading.

And then, it corrupts as it downloads, such that you ant even fast forward it! It often gets stuck on a book you've already listened to.

Why didn't the make it so that you could choose one book at a time and down load it book by book? Then it would have cost $80 rather than the $6.99 or whatever I paid for it
