I could NOT get the book to PLAY!!!!!

Any additional comments?

I tried to listen to this book several times, with no success at getting the book to play all the way through with out stopping. The book would start to play, and then freeze within the first minute of playing every time.

Just a Sample

The free version of The Free Audiobook is not a complete version. Just a sampler. I think the story is interesting and a bit dark. I might get the full version based off of this sample.
