A good listen, but made difficult due to editing

All the works contained in this audiobook are well narrated and fascinating. My low rating comes from three very annoying factors.

1. The various poems switch from Latin and Greek naming. In the Odyssey, they use the Latin naming convention, in Theogony they use the Greek, for example.

2. The chapter naming structure. The chapters are named 1-34, I believe. If you want to skip to one particular poem, it is very difficult as they are not named at all.

3. There are numerous times where the narrator re-reads the same sentence over again.
