What did you like best about Sherlock Holmes? What did you like least?

This is an amazing collection, but it was billed as being the complete works, and it is not. This collection is missing an entire book of short stories. Don't bill this as the complete works, if it is not.

The Neptune Grand has always been the seaside town's ritziest hotel, despite the shady dealings and high-profile scandals that seem to follow its elite guests. When a woman claims that she was brutally assaulted in one of its rooms and left for dead by a staff member, the owners know that they have a potential powder keg on their hands. They turn to Veronica to disprove - or prove - the woman's story.

I enjoyed the story. It was fun and entertaining. The narrator, however, was terrible. Boring, monotone voice and delivery. Bring back Kristen Bell to narrate!!!

Here is the novel that will be forever considered a triumph of the imagination. Set on the desert planet Arrakis, Dune is the story of the boy Paul Atreides, who would become the mysterious man known as Maud'dib. He would avenge the traitorous plot against his noble family and would bring to fruition humankind's most ancient and unattainable dream.

I generally do not mind different people voicing different characters, but it was not consistent. Sometimes it was the main narrator voicing Paul, for example. Sometimes it was someone else. It was distracting and confusing.
