ITunes Audio Book

Downloaded the book and well the story took a very (for TN story anyway) twist.
The 3rd file is 2 hours but in the middle it starts over and then at the end of the file jumps into the story at some point.
Not having the hard copy means I really don't know if parts are missing.
It took some time to find the troubled area.
In short at 1:02:44 it repeats until 1:52:38.
Apple was no help at all and kept saying I had a bad download. ??????
How would a download put a repeat of an hour in...????

Sounds like a time termite to me.
Little beggars chew a hole in the computer's internal clock and throw it into a loop. You're lucky it was only one - they have a very short life span, but a breeding pair would mean you'd still be downloading the same sector.

*** Specific book threads like this one are only active for a short while - usually when the books are first released. If you go to the main board and click on 'Nextian Chat' you'll find most of the people who hang out on this fforum and a lot more activity. Some might be interested to hear your word of warning about the download.
