Mostly enjoyable.

What did you love best about Classic Detective Stories?

I liked the narrator a lot. I liked the more classic, country stories rather than the detective stories of less refined characters!

Which scene was your favorite?

I liked the Sherlock Holmes stories.

A fun segment of short stories. I recommend for casual or leisurely listening or an intro to classic mysteries.

Pause between the stories, please!

Pause between the stories, please! I needed a little time to digest one complex case before rushing on to the next, and there wasn't even a second's gap in which to hit the pause button. Otherwise excellent.
