Great reading but…

The reading is masterful, but the tracks don’t align, as others have said, and sections of the story are punctuated by perhaps the most painful, jarring music, like an angry nine-year-old with a broken 1987 keyboard. I dreaded it.

Should be easier to find books

The odyssey is split into books and this audio book is split into something around 200 tracks. It would be so nice and convenient if I could just select the book I want to listen to.

Perfect except...

The narration here is perfect. The singular problem is that the 24 books of “The Odyssey” are divided—with no logic—into about 160 tracks. Should you lose your place, you will be like Odysseus, lost on the wine dark sea.
