Thanks
What's the narration like? Poor narrators can really kill a story.

I like the narrator, but I suggest you listen to the free 5 minutes sample to make sure the voice suits you before you go ahead and make the purchase.

Thanks. Just in the middle of sorting the kids bedtime. I'll have a listen later. Sometimes I find with the sample you get all the about stuff but you don't hear them actually read the story. Too many I've tried but the narrator's almost put you to sleep. Lol
Thank you.
Thanks.

Great price.

just downloading to phone and iPad now.
Thank you. Was still £ 0.49 for me.
Thanks OP.
Can this be listened offline?

Or plenty of Sherlock Holmes audiobooks available on LibriVox, all for free. There's a variety of narrators, so you can try out different ones. And all can be downloaded as MP3.

Some of it is great, some not so great. It is all free, so you can try it out and see what you think anyway.

Are these cheap audio books on Google Play or Amazon actually any better quality? Seems a lot of them are just ripped off from Librivox anyway.

I have compared the narrators from all Sherlock Holmes stories available on LibriVox to the one from the deal and there is absolutely no match. And there is definitely a big quality difference in my opinion.

Also, here you have all stories accessible from one place and read by the same person with the same quality, the same reading pace.

And come on, £0.49....

There's over 100 different narrators on LibriVox, have you really compared them all?
And audiobooks on Google Play are not really accessible at all. There's no way of downloading them as MP3, you are stuck with the Google Play app, which can be a bit rubbish.

When searching each Sherlock Holmes story included in this audiobook on Librivox, there are 32 different versions, with some of them narrated by the same person. We are therefore pretty far from 100+ narrators.

Regarding the accessibility on Google Play, yes you probably cannot use the audiobook outside of the Google Play ecosystem, but that's another topic and probably not the subject of this deal.

And how many of them have you really listened to? Or are you still digging a hole to promote this crappy deal?

To make voice comparisons, you do not need to listen to a complete audiobook. I hope you are aware of that ?(if not, I am very sorry for you). And, I am not "digging a hole to promote this crappy deal", I am just addressing your arguments, we are exchanging thoughts on a common subject. But judging by your reaction, you are not the kind of person who likes being confronted about his ideas. And that is way too bad :).

So you've not listened to any of them then?
Stephen Fry is surely the best option? I use audiobookbay.nl and audible. Audible seems to think it takes 30 days to listen to one audiobook lol so I have to improvise
