    The last narrator is shockingly awful. He takes a classic story and butcher's it.

    The book was good, but the narration was just OK. You get a wide array of readers, and some are better than others. I know many people complain when the reader does not have an English accent, but the last reader showed why an English accent shouldn't be used if you don't normally speak with one. His accent was terrible, and his reading was so deliberate and choppy that he probably added 10 minutes onto the story. Just awful. It sounded like he was sounding out every word.

    I listen to these audio books while traveling and found most of the stories held my interest and the readers did a good job except for one reader who had an unusual sharp tone and jerky method which was hard to listen to.(11).. But overall good travel entertainment which helps the distances seem shorter

    Sir Arthur Conan Doyle, never let's the reader down with his Sherlock Holmes and Dr Watson adventures, this man had such a imagination to bring so many stories to the public, without repeating the same plot.

    Sherlock Holmes is fantastic. This collection is engaging and fun, and I wholeheartedly recommend it to anyone above the age of 10 or so. I enjoyed it twice as much as I expected to. Unfortunately the narration is decidedly sub-par. I appreciate that LibriVox makes titles like this available, and I’m not sure I’d do better if I were reading, but this audiobook is plagued by poor sound and bad readers. Several of the chapters are really difficult to understand. You get what you pay for on this one.

    Love the stories but had to skip through two as the narrators where difficult to Listen to. Especially the last track.

    Dr Watson is male and needs pace and tone. The stories are not to be raced though. The final solution and the naval treaty were impossible to listen to.

    Great. I enjoyed each story except the last chapter. The reader spoke in a jerky one or two words at a time manner. I could only understand about every third word. I could not finish it.

    Great stories but terrible narration. Found i could not listen to female narrators as they tell the story from Dr Watson's memoirs. One had a very thick accent. Some of the male american narrators also were not much good either.
