    Story
    Where does Gardens of Stone rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

    The book is very good and interesting. There's a problem, which is probably caused by the editing of the recording.
    In the chapter 25, minute 5,20 ( according to the recording order, not the book order ), suddenly you get the same part of the book that appeared some hours before.
    This repetition lasts until the minute 14, which is the end of the chapter 25, and then the story continues correctly with chapter 26. The main problem is that you don't know if this mistake implies that you got the wrong recording during these 9 minutes and you are missing the good one, therefore missing a part of the book.
