Does not have all works description says.

While I can get passed the bad pronunciation of words and other aspects of the proformance it bothers me that not all works are in this book that it claims to have, or if they are they are not easily accessible.
I took the time to make a table of contents, to the best of my ability, that shows what chapters of the collection correspond to what works. If you read this and are able to provide a more complete table of contents please feel free to add yours.

Thus Spoke Zarathustra (1883), Ch 1-15, part 2 Ch 53
Beyond Good and Evil (1883), Ch 16- Ch 26
The Anti-Christ (1886), Ch 27-Ch 32
The Will to Power (1885), Ch 33-ch 43
Human, All Too Human (1875), Ch 44-ch 48
Ecce Homo (1888), Ch 49-ch51
The Birth of Tragedy (1871), Ch 52
Thus Spoke Zarathustra (1883), part 2 Ch 53
Twilight of the Idols (1886), Ch 55-Ch 59
The Genealogy of Morals (1884), Ch 60- Ch 67

Where is the table of contents?

I have got the product on my device. Then, I tried to view table of contents. I have found the following list: Chapter 1, Chapter 2, ... Chapter 67, something like that. What does it mean? Can this be fixed? If I want to listen The Birth of Tradegy, what item should I select? I believe, that detailed Table of contents is required for any quality product

C’mon audible

Not worthy of audible. You can do better than this. Very poor. Do not buy.

Mispronunciation

This guy can't read. The cadence is okay, but he mispronounces a LOT of words. Philosophers names like Hegel and Shoepenhauer are understandable, but there are fairly common English words like analogous that get botched horribly, and it isn't a rare occurrence. I guess that's why the price is so good. You get what you pay for.

Terrible reading of genius writing

The reader sounds like he has no idea what he is reading, very distracting and unfortunate.

Pathetic reading

It would be nice if the book were read by someone with some knowledge of philosophy and thereby didn't butcher all the historical names. But besides mispronunciations of both proper names (but also common words such as "impugn," "grievous," etc.), the reader also misreads (not just mispronounces) common vocabulary such as mistaking "causal" for "casual." Not a professional job.

Chapter list is missing

There is no way of retrieving information about chapters.

HELP!

This problem renders the title far less value.

impossible to tolerate the reading

the narration is horrific, pronunciation is bad and the cadence is so distracting that I cannot finish this no matter how many times I've tried.

Disconnecting narration (thus spake Zarathustra)

This is just for Thus spake Zarathustra.

The narration could have been better.

There were a lot of different characters to portray, which must have made it difficult and he did a good job of creating different voices for each one.

However, I found the voices of the different characters to be quite jarring, at times. Each of the different accents of the characters was not very consistent. One of the characters had a sort of Birmingham accent that, at times, moved into slightly different English accents as he spoke. His Canadian (I think) accent also slips through quite a lot (whilst doing English accents).
Additionally, I found them to be a little childlike, as if on a children's TV show.
I also found there to be disfluency in how he spoke, a little like Captain Kirk from the original Star Trek (across all voices).

These difficulties caused me to be constantly too aware that I was listening to someone in a studio, thus always taking me away from the storyline. I would recommend the book/audiobook, but not this reading of it. I'm actually a little upset that I paid hard earned money for this.
