I think most have read this, but it was one I'd neglected, and am so glad that audiobooks allow me to "catch up" on the things I've missed, but don't have time to sit down and enjoy.
Simon Vance is a stellar narrator, bringing stories to life w/ his flawless transitions between characters. What a pro! His narration made this story for me.
Thoughtful story, likable characters, easy listening, great humor, and a mystery! What more could you ask for?
He's got great expression and I just love listening to him.
Enjoyed these stories, and was amused. I'd never read Sherlock Holmes, and hadn't realized the humor within. Very entertaining. I'm glad the two-for-one deal on classics encouraged me to purchase this one.
It's been a while since I listened, so I don't have the vivid memory of it I'd like to while reviewing. I did enjoy the book, however.
I appreciated its twists and turns, thoughtful reflection, and interesting background regarding the film industry.
Caroline Lee is one of my favorite readers. In fact, the reason I selected this book in the first place was because she'd be narrator.
Holy cow...the reading was just terrible. I expect a few errors here and there, but these mistakes were too many, and of too many varieties to excuse. Words were mispronounced, punctuation was ignored, inflections were inappropriate, characters' lines were read in the voice of others, verb tense were changed, and words were omitted or inserted, changing the entire meaning of some lines. "Not" is a very important word!'
I was able to understand what was intended, but this was NOT the performance of a talented reader. His error "coverups" were ineffective and his reading was a distraction from the story itself.
This was a total waste of my money. I listened to the end only because I felt obligated, having paid for it. Blech.
No. The author was trying too hard. I'll not be reading any of the rest of the series.
I want my money back. :)
