The narrator is terrible, it sounds like it's being read by a machine, monotone and with little the stresses being laid on the wrong words in a sentence .
The stories are okay, but have a lot of inconsistencies , the feeling of the relationship between Holmes and Watson just doesn't seem right .
There are a few oddities , in one story , a policeman is described as "the chief constable ", but instead of being a figure of higher rank than the detective, he's no more than a dogs body , does the writer actually realise what a chief constable is ?
In a couple of stories , the families congregate in the "great hall" ....this is the late nineteenth century , not the fourteenth century .
Overall pretty disappointing , I heard it all the way though , but didn't get as much enjoyment from it as the time given to it warranted .

Poorly written - grammar and phrasing. 1st story is verbose - compare Doyle's crisp, economical management of time and words. Narrator reads with strange, flat intonation and hesitation between words, as if he was reading from a slow Teleprompter.
Finally, hearing Holmes and Watson speaking with strong American accents and pronunciation becomes very distracting.
Am going to get a refund.
