    Story
    "Good if you can bear the narration"
    How did the narrator detract from the book?

    I loved the stories but the narration really intruded. Now I fully realise that some may find her style acceptable but personally I found her voice far too 'watch with mother' and her delayed terminal consonants very irritating. I would strongly suggest listening to a long sample before purchase. I am not sure if I can bear to finish listening to this audiobook!

    Story
    "Annoying voice."
    If this book wasn’t for you, who do you think might enjoy it more?

    I don't think anyone would persevere with this reading


    Would you ever listen to anything by Arthur Conan Doyle again?

    Yes, definitely, but with a different reader


    Would you be willing to try another one of Cathy Dobson’s performances?

    No


    If you could play editor, what scene or scenes would you have cut from The Short Stories of Sir Arthur Conan Doyle?

    Cut nothing out


    Any additional comments?

    Very disappointed. I love Conan Doyle's work, and could not continue long listening because of the repetitive modulation pattern of the reader.

    Story
    "Great stories but hard for me to listen to"

    I loved the stories in this audiobook- typical Arthur Conan Doyle. However, the see-sawing lilting narration completed distracted me from the story being read. The narrator read the stories as one might read a story to a child. I cringed the whole time but persevered simply because of my love of Arthur Conan Doyle's writing. Listen to a sample of the narration before buying this. She may sound lovely to you and if so, you will enjoy the audiobook.
