Worst narrator I've ever heard.

What disappointed you about Shadowfall?

The narrator's voice was ill-suited. He used high, annoying voices for the female characters and an odd, definitely-not-from-England accent. In addition, his "Holmes" and his "Watson" sounded exactly the same. Ugh!

Has Shadowfall turned you off from other books in this genre?

No, but I would never listen to another book by this author.

Who would you have cast as narrator instead of Martyn Clements?

Almost anyone.

You didn’t love this book... but did it have any redeeming qualities?

I couldn't get past chapter five, because the narrator was so bad, so I can't say.

Any additional comments?

Ugh. No. Just... no.

Only for those with great imagination.

Holmes' purists will hate this. Those who can suspend their reasoning will enjoy a pretty good fantasy/adventure.

Please don't mispronounce words!

Any additional comments?

Being a bit of a perfectionist, I found myself listening for the next word that was pronounced so poorly it may not have been decipherable had I not had Sherlockian ears!
Twice I heard Sherlock's ennui pronounced en-you-i. There were enough other words that had an almost unrecognizable meaning due to the way they were pronounced that this narrator got on my last nerve!
