Big disappointment...

This book wasn’t for you, but who do you think might enjoy it more?

The story seemed disjointed to me. In all fairness to John Gardner I may need to read it in print, as Robin Sach's performance was so monotone that I never finished the book.

What didn’t you like about Robin Sachs’s performance?

Mr. Sach's was so monotone that I was afraid to listen in the car, as I may have fallen asleep driving.

Monotonous, Charlie Browns Teacher.

Would you recommend The Revenge of Moriarty to your friends? Why or why not?

No.

What didn’t you like about Robin Sachs’s performance?

I am an avid Sherlock Holmes fan. In that, I wanted to love this book. I couldn't finish it simply because of the voice actor. It was droll and lifeless. But I do not blame Mr. Sachs. It has to be the directors fault.

If this book were a movie would you go see it?

Yes, that might be better.
