Great stories- pity about the layout

Would you say that listening to this book was time well-spent? Why or why not?

This would have been a pleasure to listen to except that there are no chapters inserted so it is therefore impossible to listen to any individual story. They run from one to the next without a break.Harriet Walter is a good reader but by the end I was totally confused about which story was which.
