Hard to rate accurately

The narration was just too horrible to listen to the whole book, making it impossible to judge on the merits of the content. The accents are laughable and the reader seems bored at all other times; you can sense the places where they edited out the heavy sighs. If you're interested in the character, Audible also has the Mystery of the Yellow Room, which is well read and intriguing.

Narration is silly

The narrator does all the accents in some kind of Peppe Le Peu (the skunk). If you can get past that, the story is pretty good. Not nearly as good as Mystery of the Yellow Room, but worth reading. It too takes some overdramatic turns, but it eventually comes together. There are so few Gaston Leroux works that I recommend it.
