This is one audio book, that's nearly 60 hours long, with 261 unnamed chapters.
That's a great deal!

Note that it does not have ALL of Mark Twain's works. For example, the book "Roughing it" is not included because it is considered semi-nonfiction (though some of it is made up/fiction). So just know it is only the books that are 100% fiction.
The other downside is that all books are counted as 1 book, so in order to read all the Huck Finn and Tom Sawyer books in order you have to look up what chapters to skip around to in order to find the right book to listen to next. This makes it kind of annoying, but if they didn't do it this way, you'd have to buy all the books separately, and it would cost you at least $1/book, or $15 to get them all separately, even on sale. So, the hassle is worth it.

For comparison, here is the same item on Audible:
Mark-Twain-The-Complete-Novels-Audiobook [audible.com]
$14.95 - Regular
$10.46 - Member price (or 1 credit)

I use both Google Play and Audible but prefer Audible. Usually, sales (ebooks/audiobooks) happen on both platforms at the same time, but not this time I guess, so Google Play is a great deal. On the bright side, these will work on Google smart speakers (ie: for my daughter to play at night before bed, and will pick up where they left off the next night).
58 h 32 min? wow, this is going to be a fun ride

While I love Twain he can be long winded to some, which is perfect to entertain family members during the holidays when it is time for them to go home.

It's very easy to lose yourself in a 58 hour audiobook due to it not being segmented into individual books or chapters. Don't fall asleep with it on.

Considering I have a 40 hour solo road trip coming up, this might be fantastic.
