Better reader please
Love the stories, but it needs a better reader who knows how to read a story; also way too many commercials

Classics read with enthusiasm
I love the narrators enthusiasm and his eclectic and varied selection! He especially shines with making imaginative but wordy writers like HP Lovecraft exciting. My mother and I downloaded and listened to the Holmes stories as our going-to-sleep podcasts on a recent hiking trip.
