the reading by Mr. David is so good. I am die-hard fan of Holmes, so I have obviously read this a hundred times. The reading by Mr. David Clarke is so great and brings each character come alive. Nuances if different tones, accents are superb. He is one of the best readers I have come across at Librivox.
