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!!
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.
