The numbers are the chapter numbers. The audiobook is presented as a series of chapters, some stories take up multiple chapters, but there is no indication which stories start where, so I made this life.

The review claims that all the stories are here, but as you can see, many of the most significant stories are not present, including The Shadow over Innsmouth, and Beyond the Mountains of Madness.

The stories that are here are wide ranging, excellently read and good stories. If this is your first experience of Lovecraft, then this is a perfect introduction, and a good representative of h is work. If you're interested because of its claim to have all the stories, then be warned. Personally, I don't want to return it, because I'm enjoying it greatly, and I think it is excellent value for money/1 crewdit. I was just disappointed it was misadvertised.

Too much, disorganized, no room to think

You want some time after each story to think about consequences and let the ending make an impact.
I'm not sure the audiobook format does justice to an anthology....
