Unacceptable audio quality!
The audio quality is simply unacceptable in this recording and there are no chapter divisions!

It isn’t broken down by chapters
It is a pain because there aren’t any chapter breaks. That makes finding your place a major annoyance
For all the help he gave Hemingway in getting started in Paris the first book Hemingway wrote was "Torrents of Spring," a biting, although not particularly good, sartire of Anderson. Hemingway wrote it in a few weeks. The fact it is a rarity doesn't mean it's worth tracking down. Anderson, like Sinclair Lewis, was not one of the fashionable writers after the "lost generation" took center stage in 20th century American literature. Perhaps their topics were too simple, with common place characters. They struggle but few of them bleed or die as the other writers would have them. No, this isn't a great novel but in the history of the budding American novel of the early 20th century novel it is still worth reading, my rating not withstanding.
