many nested stories

I like the way the author packs each story with multiple coalescing storylines, so each tale is made of several. It seems like a spendthrift approach, tossing out so many story lines that other people would be happy to have just one of, but it makes for a rich narrative, a tour de force . . .

A middling Holmes pastiche

The stories herein are just that, stories. There is little in the way of mystery and our protagonists feel as though they're just along for the ride.

Irritating american vocabulary

Would you say that listening to this book was time well-spent? Why or why not?

Not bad until each ridiculous and lazy American term cropped up - Fall / Autumn, Sidewalk / Pavement etc - which was distracting

What will your next listen be?

Not something like this

Did Simon Shepherd do a good job differentiating each of the characters? How?

Yes but his Holmes voice is annoying

Do you think The Papers of Sherlock Holmes: Volume 1 needs a follow-up book? Why or why not?

Not until author has better attention to detail

Not great - narrator irritating

Not one of the better ones of the 'new Holmes' genre. The narrator seems to be making Holmes sound like a poor man's Edward Fox, which becomes really irritating after a while.
And I'm afraid the plots just aren't in the style of Conan Doyle's. If you like the Bert Coules stories, I doubt you'll enjoy this any more than I did.
