    They Leave Out Many of the Best Articles, Boo!

    What could have made this a 4 or 5-star listening experience for you?

    I paid a great deal for my 12 month subscription, it is frustrating to find how many articles are not included in the audio edition.

    Has The New Yorker, December 12th 2016 (Larissa MacFarquhar, Alexis Okeowo, Jeffrey Toobin) turned you off from other books in this genre?

    YES, Great magazine, but I'm turned off because the audio edition is too far too limited. Where are all the articles my friends are talking about? Makes me feel like a second class citizen.

    What about Todd Mundt’s performance did you like?

    Mundt is just perfect, every time!

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

    Disappointed not to have all the articles each month.

    Any additional comments?

    Give us all the articles, please!!!!! It's not worth the price without them.
