an excellent anthology

I have hundreds of audio books but this truly counts as the worst recording of them all. Some of the passages are barely audible so that I have to hold my kindle next to my ear only to suddenly jump when it becomes normal again. There are places where the sound quality is so poor that I literally loose the plot.

Wonderful narration by all performers especially Lorretta Swit.

I have given the stars for the content and narration but nil for the lack of quality of product.

by FAR the worst audio quality

This is so disappointing that I really should be seeking a refund. The audio is absolutely in"audible" in many places. I put it on a car stereo to increase the volume but it only increased the distortion. Several times I just had to fill in the gaps for what I couldn't hear. I've had probably hundreds of hours of perfect audio on books I've purchased on this website. These 6 hours were dismal. Beyond the "must have been copied from an old stretched out cassette tape" sound, some of the reading was simply bad. Mispronounced words and odd breaks in the sentences are jarringly different from anything I've come to expect, and beyond any simple personal preference.

BAD, BAD AUDIO

The first story, by Sue Grafton, is a duplicate of a book I bought on here. About halfway through the audiobook...the audio quality drops off to unlistenable.

Great stories , terrible audio

How could the performance have been better?

Very hard to listen to

What reaction did this book spark in you? Anger, sadness, disappointment?

Really disappointed. The first audible book I have bought that I could not listen to because of half of the audio

Poor Audio Quality

This file has very pure audio quality. The volume and frequency sampling seems to be fragmented like it was pieced together out of purely ripped tracks.

Horrible

You can’t gear a thing the recording quality is awful. The higher the volume the more distorted.
