I've listened to many readers do Sherlock Holmes and, in my opinion, this one ( Walter Covell ) is the best. Can't wait to hear his other stuff.

Basically the stories are great but the guy that does Watson does it with a very rough voice making it very difficult to listen to on a sustained basis. If I could have heard this first I would have never bought it.

This was my first selection and I decided on it because unlike some of the other Sherlock Holmes options it seems to cover all the books in the 'Return of Sherlock Holmes' anthology. Big mistake!!
Sadly within a few minutes of listening to the first story I was talking back to the voice correcting his mistakes - which were many!
I am all for equal opportunities but if you are going to get someone to read a book out loud for payment maybe either get someone who researches things like names or even has a passing knowledge of the subject matter. I'm not even sure whether this person even has English as a first language.
I disliked this book so much that I have deleted it - just in case somehow I accidentally listen to it again.. so to sum up I will be very careful to buy the more authentic Edward Hardwicke audio versions in future and remember quantity is hardly ever better than quality!!
