At first i was very excited to have found Playster.com and I was loving it as I listened to all my favorite authors but as time went by I started noticing that my authors were disappearing and my dashboard and discover page was changing each and every day. You may not know this and they do state it on their website but authors will be filtered out as you continue to use the service. I reached out to Chat last month and they confirmed that because I am such an avid listener I no longer have access to authors like James Patterson, David Baldacci, Lee Child all of which have a new book out that I cannot listen to. So now my dashboard gives me suggestions for the history of physics, biology fundamentals and human cloning just to give you an example of what is available to me now that I have been banned from the popular authors due to my usage. I am a remote worker and love to listen to my books in the office, a luxury I have because I don't disturb anyone but this makes me the customer they don't want. I pay $30 a month as I have the premium plan but I don't get to listen to any of my favorite authors anymore and the only reason I have not cancelled yet is because I have a few saved books that I want to finish mind you If I search for these same books they are no longer available to me. I am writing this review just as a warning to avid listeners out their to take into consideration that you will LOSE access to all the authors they advertise on their website when you first sign up. Read the fine print. Also as a suggestion go to your local library and get a library card as most libraries now have Overdrive/Libby where you can read e-books or listen to their audio versions. I have done that and have already added 5 books to my virtual library shelf. This is FREE and on the bestsellers you may have to put a hold on them as they are popular but you will get to listen to them.
