The Nation's Favourite Poems

This really is excellent, all the readers are very, very good but I feel John Nettles shines, especially his reading of the 'Rime of the Ancient Mariner'. Unfortunately this is, in my opinion, the weak point as it gives us all of this epic and I would have been happier with the inclusion of some of the other poems in the book which have been omitted. Or indeed have a longer CD (or download).

Bad format, two chapters

I loved both the poems and narrators great performance. However, I'm really disappointed with the format of this audiobook, there's only two chapters. It will be nearly impossible to find a specific poem, unless it has been bookmarked, which should not be necessary. I really wish they could have made each poem as a chapter or maybe at least grouped them by author.
