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.
