Yes, I found the storys very interesting to listen to. How hints as you go along pull the whole investigations together at the end.
Max Carrados, very witty at manoovering situations to benefit his curiostity
Stephen Fry gives all the characters individual voices and gets your imagination working so that you can really imagine what there like.
Yes bits made me chuckle, I liked that Max does his investigations not for money or work, just purely to entertain himself.
If you liked Sherlock Holmes i think this is definitely worth a listen.
