Fifteen often-intriguing stories are marred by a poor reading. Although Andrew Timothy has a good voice, he stumbles through the text. Sometimes he corrects himself, and sometimes he doesn't. It's puzzling that none of this was fixed in the recording studio. If you prefer a smooth delivery by a trained actor, this book is not for you. If you'll put up with anything just for more Appleby stories, well, you've been warned.

The fact that I am a great Michael Innes fan is the only thing preventing me from returning this audiobook. The short stories are surprisingly good (an abbreviated Appleby is just as entertaining as the unabridged version) but the narration of The Appleby File is absolutely the worst I have ever heard. The narrator stumbles through, mispronounces and doesn't correct and the production quality is astonishingly bad. You can hear pages being turned in the room as well as other ambient noise! The narration is so leaden that you can't distinguish which character is supposed to be speaking. Such a disappointment.
An unusual atmospheric reading, but strangely attractive, pages turning, rustling,corrections and pauses. Very real...
You can hear the pages turning and errors have not been edited out. All distracts from the stories
