    "contains a glitch"
    Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

    One of these contains a glitch, where some of the chapters appear out of sequence. It's confusing when it happens, because the story suddenly jumps forward a few decades. Then, about an hour later, it jumps back to get the missing chapters. The first time I listened to it, I actually didn't catch what had happened. I was just left with a feeling of having been very confused about that period of time. I am not positive that it was in Volume 5 that it happened, but it seems like it was right around this point in the story.
    Don't let that dissuade you from buying this book, because the story truly is brilliant. Just be alert when it happens, and jump around as necessary so that you are listening to the chapters in chronological sequence.
