I got Twenty minutes in and could not stand another minute of the Narrators performance

What will your next listen be?

I've started Zodiac Station

How did the narrator detract from the book?

Her voice was up in tone then normal then up then normal and all in the wrong places. It drove me insane

What character would you cut from The Short Stories of Sir Arthur Conan Doyle?

I would still like to hear the stories as I'm a huge fan, but not with this Narrator

Any additional comments?

I also have great Spy stories with this Narrator and it's just the same; urgh

Good if you can bear the narration

How did the narrator detract from the book?

I loved the stories but the narration really intruded. Now I fully realise that some may find her style acceptable but personally I found her voice far too 'watch with mother' and her delayed terminal consonants very irritating. I would strongly suggest listening to a long sample before purchase. I am not sure if I can bear to finish listening to this audiobook!
