Technical issues with this book

Ok story etc but it regularly jumped back to a number of places. Never had any problems like this with any other book.

Poor download

Would you ever listen to anything by John Mortimer again?

Yes

Which character – as performed by Tony Britton – was your favourite?

Rumpole

Any additional comments?

It was very difficult to follow the stories as the each chapter was repeated back to back thus running time was over 12 hours but actual story length was just over 6!

Repeated chapters are very annoying.

What would have made Rumpole Rests His Case better?

I am astonished that no one has withdrawn this book given the error in publication and the previous reviewers stating that the chapters are repeated. I bought this hoping it had, but as it had not I have asked for a refund.

Half the story

Every chapter of this book is duplicated, so the advertised length of this product is wrong. Also, having to skip every other chapter is annoying.
