Is delay typical

I bought teh Sport for listening to audiobooks (from audible). I thought the device was defective as it seems to only play for a second, but it turns out that there is a considerable delay from pressing play until it actually initiates. The delay is at least 20 seconds. Is this normal? None of the other functions give this delay.

I’ve also noticed that sometimes there can be a delay between pressing the play/pause button and something happening. This and other problems screams out that the Clip Sport was put on sale before it was properly bug tested.
