great stories, wrong narrator

What did you like best about The Great Detective Collection? What did you like least?

Many lovely long stories ruined by the narration. Cathy Dobson seems as though she is constantly trying to sound like a man, and every sentence is painfully drawled out at the end so that it becomes distracting and tortuous to listen to. All the characters sound the same from story to story. I hate leaving a review that is at all negative, and this is just my perspective, but I was really looking forward to listening to this book and it's been difficult.

Did the narration match the pace of the story?

Not really.

Dreadful narration

I think I would have enjoyed the stories immensely (some I had previously read) but the narration was so distracting that I couldn't listen to more than a few minutes. Waste of a credit.
