They made the whole system so user-unfriendly and difficult that I have no desire to ever use Audible again.


Same. I eventually got it on my iPod, but it took me 3 hours and 2 different computers to make it happen. I really wish they had provided a CD release of this.

I'm sorry to hear you were dealing with similar issues, but I'm glad at least I have someone I can commiserate with! :) If they ever release a CD, I would happily buy it again. But I doubt they will.

Audible is shit. I won't complain too much because they at least recorded the book, but Audible is SHIT.

I second that. I love my Kindle as much as I hate Audible.

Still no news on a worldwide release?

None so far. I assume it's a matter of legal rights. I assume Audible only got the rights for a US release, and only for an audiobook, no CD.

Anyone who listened care to share a review or some of their feelings yet?

I'm about 2 hours in and so far I'm really impressed with Lee's performance. I was never the biggest fan of the diary, but I'm coming to appreciate certain aspects of it through her read. She takes her time with it and elevates a lot of the material -- it lends really well to being spoken aloud.

It's also really hard to get through -- it's sad material in the first place, but a lot of the pauses in the reading speak volumes.

Thank you for the report. I will have to seek it out.

Hopefully it'll get a global release when the series does really well.

For those who live outside the U.S, a little bird told me that a link to the audiobook is floating around.
