(3.5 stars)

Given that it is a collection of Sherlock Holmes stories, I can't bring myself to give it less than 3 stars. The only criticism I have is that more than a few of the readers have no idea about proper pacing, or tone of voice. If you can get past all that, the stories themselves are wonderful, as is the case with every SH story I've read so far

the book was great, half the readers were not.

(4 stars)

there were readers who had put on odd fake accents or put odd inflections everywhere, and or droned the whole time they talked. I love real accents, but fake ones are almost intolerable

with one exception, the readers are horrible
