If this book wasn’t for you, who do you think might enjoy it more?

I was very disappointed by this collection. I was looking forward to listening to all my favourites but I omitted to listen to the sample clip. The narration is stilted, mannered and extremely irritating. The narrator makes no attempt to differentiate characters and there was no way I could listen to the book all the way through. This is the only time I have ever been disappointed with an Audible choice. Ghastly!

Would you recommend The Great Detective Collection to your friends? Why or why not?

I wouldn't recommend this collection to anyone.

Who might you have cast as narrator instead of Cathy Dobson?

Any one, Stephen Fry would be perfect.

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

Well the actual stories are great but the narration ruined them.

Any additional comments?

Enough said.
