Most of you people just have no patience. You make me laugh, using words such as: cadence, and structure, wanabe, art critics... All you are doing is ripping in to someone who is not an actor, or professional narrator but, like us all here,some body with an interest in literature. Be mindful also that we get the books free- so stop complaining!

Patience w the reader of "Scandal in Bohemia", or skip to the next chapters, as the remaining stories are well read and worth the listening
May 27, 2013
The reader was terrible. Skip the first

What are you moaning about, you get the audio books for free. Why not have a go yourself... Or get your cash out and buy the audio books.

Great book. Only bad mark was on the first reader. Aweful!! I had to skip that and read it on my own before I could continue.
February 18, 2013
Is this the best reader you could come up with? My God, my 8 year old grandson could have done a better job of it.
February 09, 2013
The first reader sounds like a 1st grader learning how to pronounce words correctly... however the rest of the stories are quite good
February 06, 2013
Don't let the first reader put you off. Ripping good stories and readers follow!
February 01, 2013
The spaker was horrible
January 23, 2013
Not sure until I finish it.
January 19, 2013
The book would probably be much better if it where being read by someone who could actually read and speak properly, his interpretation is awful. I should add that I only read part of the first story
January 12, 2013
Great Book!!! Don't stop after the first chapter for every chapter the reader changes. Just stay with it and enjoy the whole book don't be just drop the book and feel guilty that you didn't finish it! Keep with it! Don't give up and keep up the good work!!!

I couldn't enjoy the story because I was too distracted by the horrible voice reading it. Every word that this kid said sounded strained and fake. Also, his "British accent" only made it worse. I couldn't make it more than 15 minutes without getting too irritated and turning it off.
December 29, 2012
The reader in the first chapter speaks like he has rocks in his mouth, very difficult to understand. Also, his fake British accent is so horrible and unbelievable that a preschool child wouldn't buy it.
December 11, 2012
Very poor vocabulary skills. Also a total lack of enthusiasm.
December 02, 2012
It was okay

The speaker or reader was not that good in the first chapter.

Terrible first chapter. Sounds like a 15 year old with bracers... So bad
June 25, 2012
The reader of the first chapter is HORRIBLE! He has a bad lisp but the other readers are great. The man who reads chapter 4 even does voices! I recommend this book, just skip the first mystery.
June 01, 2012
Good story but the narration is choppy and hard to follow.
May 26, 2012
Terrible!!! The book itself is wonderful. The guy who read this for us is awful. Evidently, he knows little or nothing of the art of storytelling. The accents of characters changing in mid sentence was a real stroke of genius...or was it just a real stroke?

I really wanted to hear this story, but with this reader it is was impossible! The only thing I could think of was, that I wanted to punch him in the face!

It sounds like the reader is using this book to help get over a speech impediment. The cadence and emphasis is off to the point of being distracting.
February 05, 2012
The book is great but hated the reader
February 01, 2012
The reading wasn't very good, but the book was great.
January 31, 2012
Reader is distracting
January 23, 2012
The reader destroys this amazing book! Was a disappointment.
January 21, 2012
The book is one of my favorites, but the reader was too distracting. Microphone noise and a non mellifluous voice kept me from enjoying this reading.

Really good but I found It hard to follow the reader sounded like he had no idea how to read and stuttered and said words wrong :( some one should re do it ! But all in all a good read and he did try xxxx

I'm sad because Sherlock Holmes is amazing. Why was this reading published? Someone needs to re-do it. A Study in Scarlet was read beautifully. This is a shame.
December 11, 2011
Appalling. A British classic desecrated by an American, brace wearing teenager
December 08, 2011
Luv the book, the reader was kinda bad, but I got the stories. :)

The best way to fall asleep! / flak

Made it 2 minutes in listening to this kid struggle with 3 syllable words ruined this classic for me
December 02, 2011

Book itself is great... The reader/auditor was reasonable. He spoke quiet & loud where it was not needed and occasionally it would be extremely loud. But goodjob to the auditor, great job I couldn't read out loud for that long
November 14, 2011
The voices were kinda annoying but the book was good
November 12, 2011
Does not have the right kind of voice for this reading.

Three out of the 12 narrators are absolutely awful! The first sounds like he's trying to re-learn talking with new braces, another sounds like she's trying to read through clenched teeth, and at least one other sounds as though they are trying to practice fake accents. However, the stories are some of my favorite and I will enjoy listening over and over to MOST of them :)

I love these books so very much. Was a bit hard with one reader, but over all I love the books to much to care :)

Whaa whaa whaa whaa whaa. Now I know how Charlie Brown felt in class.
September 27, 2011
The reader for the first chapter of this book is dreadful. The cadence is awful and there are numerous mispronounced words. Thankfully, the other readers for the rest of the chapters are much better. The story itself is excellent.
September 11, 2011
Could not listen for 10 secons
September 07, 2011
The person talking is awful
August 11, 2011
One of the BEST FREE apps. I love it. There are some good narrators but for a free app it's better than any narrating computer voice. There are different narrators per chapter which keeps it fresh and less boring. I definitely recommend this free app
July 20, 2011
Poorly narrated! Drives you mad, sounds like he's broken his jaw.
June 10, 2011
No! Stop. Please, stop! I'll do anything.
