Average Book, Average Narration

Arthur Conan Doyle does not display his excellent talents in this book as he does in the Sherlock Holmes series. The book has very little plot; the majority of the content being about the eccentric ways of Napoleon Bonaparte. The story is interesting, but leaves you saying "was that it? Nothing More?" Gabriel Woolf has excellent French pronunciation and his narration is good, but not something that will stand out in a crowd. For excellent Doyle and excellent narration I highly recommend "The Complete Stories Of Sherlock Holmes Vol 1 & 2"
