Voice makes suspension of disbelief difficult.

This is the sixth Sherlock Holmes novel I've listened to this month and my least favorite. The narrator dramatizes the character's voices so that it sounds like you're listening to a play. I much prefer to hear a book read so that the voices create a suspension of disbelief.
