4.0 out of 5 stars Great stories. 17 Mar. 2014
Verified Purchase
I listened to the recordings while taking my dog for a walk, which there are lots of short stories, and all for free, what more could you ask for?. I couldn't listen to a couple of them due to the person's voice (droand rather than read the story) but pls Don't let that put you off.
I had to start the story at home, pause it, get to my destination with my dog then press play, then off I'd go in my own little world listening to the mysteries unfolding.
It's FREE try it.

1.0 out of 5 stars Sherlock holmes 1 Aug. 2014
Verified Purchase
I'm not being sexist as some may think but I couldn't get to grips with this app purely because the narrator is an American female. This novel which I have read because I love literature, is written in first person with a protagonist who is an English man. If the book were in third with varying characters it would be different but when listening to a story you want to completely lose yourself and I found the narrator off putting. All I wanted was to listen to a good story in bed because I've been struggling to sleep. However I didn't get past the first page worth. Sorry but really not my cup of tea.

4.0 out of 5 stars Great selection of free audio books 19 Dec. 2013

The texts are not formatted to read properly as a book, but this app is well worth it for the 9 collections of audio books from LiberVox.

5.0 out of 5 stars Good Effort And Free 19 Jan. 2014
By Tiger

I can't believe somebody complaining about a free collection in one of the reviews here. It's the stories not the narrator that are important. This is an amazing free resource. I'm English and posh and couldn't care less that it was read by an American woman. Your comments were both sexist and xenophobic not to mention a little snobbish. Maybe you should try reading some yourself instead of just using the audio book function and you might find your intelligence improves as well as your outlook. Take this coming from on Oxbridge graduate. A fine effort of collecting Sherlock Holmes stories both in print and audio form. Five stars.

1.0 out of 5 stars NARRATIVE 10 Jun. 2014

The stories do require reading by a male voice [ not sexist ], but I am afraid it is not for me.

Best regards - Michael.
