Reviews

not great

(3 stars)

some very mediocre stories amid the Conan Doyle tales which I have heard better renditions. A case of Identity was read very badly, only the occasional word decipherable. . A diversity of voices is great often adding to the narrative but when the accent spoils the story because it is incomprehensible it is not on. Some editorial input needed in many librivox offerings. Having said that Librivox is a wonderful app.

different tales for different tastes

(4 stars)

Some lesser known stories by well- known writers. Different narrators, most are easy listening. Recommended.
