Good narration; horrible formatting
I like the narrator, though he could stand to pause a little at the end of his sentences, as other reviews have noted.
One thing that really drives me mad about these collections, though, is that the separate stories come lumped together into just three files, so it's impossible to find the start of a particular story without much hunting around and often spoiling the ending of the story before if you haven't yet listened to it.
David Ian Davies apparently forgot that a period is a full stop, i.e., won't you please pause to take a breath? He reads the narrative sections as if they were one massive run-on sentence, and, frankly, his character voices aren't that great either. As a lifelong Sherlock Holmes fan, I was sorely disappointed; material this good deserves a far better interpretation.
This is excellent, the one voice is incredible, if you like Sherlock Holmes stories you owe it to yourself to buy this book, the voices are excellent and love the stories.
Keep them coming Mr. Davies, I am a fan.
