I am quite satisfied with this edition. Surely, the accent is a bit off since the narrator is not British, but I am not a native speaker myself so I did not mind that much. For an American, his performance is actually pretty decent. I especially appreciated that all Sherlock Holmes stories are put together in just 3 volumes so it is easy to get them all. I'd say that for this price it's a good product.
"One of the best books I laid my hands/ears upon"
At first, I wasn't sure whether this audiobook is so irresistible thanks to author's effort of the excellence of the narrator. I actually picked it because I absolutely adore Dan Stevens, especially his voice and his flawless English. However, I was not aware of his capabilities as a narrator until I sunk into Angel's Game. He instantly pulls you in and makes this wonderful book come to life.
I suppose both the narration and the writing contribute to the fact that this is the best book I have bought via Audible so far. I could not stop listening to it, it completely consumed me from the opening line to the very last word. The author has a particular gift for creating suspense so thick it actually makes your stomach cramp with anxiousness. But there's more to Angel's Game than simple sense of thrill. The ideas and concepts presented to the reader/listener are deep and quite bold.
This book probably raises more questions then it answers but it's a beautifully compelling piece of prose that will make your head spin and your heart ache. I highly recommend it to any lover of great literature.
