Summary

Volker Kutscher lässt das Berlin des Jahres 1929 lebendig werden. Sein Held Gereon Rath erlebt eine Stadt im Rausch. Kokain, illegale Nachtclubs, politische Straßenschlachten - ein Tanz auf dem Vulkan. Der junge, ehrgeizige Kommissar, neu in der Stadt und abgestellt beim Sittendezernat, schaltet sich ungefragt in Ermittlungen der Mordkommission ein - und ahnt nicht, dass er in ein Wespennest gestoßen hat.

Good book but truly terrible audiobook editing

Loved the book and it's setting. The reader is good to. And it's great to see German audiobooks in an unabridged version. I wish the reader had read out the chapter titles however. They are part of the printed book, why should I, as a audiobook listener not be given all the details shown to a reader? Much more irritating however is the fact that whoever edited or authored this audiobook version has done a truly terrible job, probably through sheer laziness. Whoever thought that it makes sense to produce an audiobook with 269 (!!) chapter marks? Completely useless if you ever need to find your place again and they don't correspond to any natural division of the book such as its three parts or 35 actually chapters either. I realise breaking the audio into 3 to 5 minute junks could make a certain amount of sense in the days of audio CDs. In a downloadable audio format however they are completely nonsensical. Repurposing the breaks between CD tracks as chapter marks instead of editing the file to have useful and practical chapter marks is just lazy and disrespectful to your listeners. Nobody would put up with such shoddy formatting in a printed book, why should listeners of audiobooks? In part this is audible's fault. Audible should insist that publishers produce the versions for audible in a sensible format given the modern downloaded audio files.
