Just One Chunk

Poor access to content, as no track listings and just one continuous track.

Its a great collection of poems, but...

A fantastic collection of poems but its one chunk, and there are no timings or any lists. In the end, you get what you pay for, although i do beg itunes to either further lower the price, or show that thay actually feel some respect for the poetry section of the store, by actualy seperating the tracks or at least giving us a list. All the poem albums are the same, no lists, no seperations. I have this edition on tape and will buy it off itunes when they actually decide to be reasonable.

The Best Poems of All Time

The Worst Audiobook of All Time. You won't be able to select a particular poem because they are all together on one continuous track. They are poorly read. I'd rather have toothache than buy another audiobook like this.
