What would have made O. Henry: Complete Short Stories Collection better?

I have no doubt the writing and, most likely, performance are what I wanted.

What was most disappointing about O. Henry and William Sydney Porter ’s story?

I'd like to hear the Audiobook I bought!

What didn’t you like about Bob Thomley’s performance?

Will never know, I guess.

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

Considering that Audible is an Amazon department, they could not have made this less friendly for a customer than this. I'd like to either be able to listen to the book on Echo (not a recognized title) or get my money back.

Any additional comments?

I'd be a better Audible customer if it were a user friendly place. Far from it!
