great stories, appalling narration.

I struggled through the first story, continually rewinding as the narrator made it so difficult to concentrate on the story.
Her diction was okay, but the manner of her narration was worse than a 5 year old.
Having previously 'read' Sherlock Holmes, narrated by Stephen Fry, I was really looking forward to this, but it was diabolical.
If I didn't have to put one star to it I wouldn't!
Oh so disappointed.
I now know I MUST listen to the sample prior to purchasing!!

Sherlock Holmes: The Definitive Collection
- By: Arthur Conan Doyle, Stephen Fry - introductions
- Narrated by: Stephen Fry
- Length: 71 hrs and 57 mins
Ever since he made his first appearance in A Study In Scarlet, Sherlock Holmes has enthralled and delighted millions of fans throughout the world. Now Audible is proud to present Arthur Conan Doyle's Sherlock Holmes: The Definitive Collection, read by Stephen Fry. A lifelong fan of Doyle's detective fiction, Fry has narrated the complete works of Sherlock Holmes - four novels and five collections of short stories.
Brilliant audio book, shame about the navigation.

Fantastically written books, with intrigue and suspense, and read so brilliantly by the irrepressible Stephen Fry.
A must for anyone who loves a good detective story.
