Where was the audio editor?

The story is captivating, no getting around that. Dominic Lopez did an excellent narration, but in a great many places you hear the same lines repeated accompanied by hand claps which were, no doubt, to alert the audio editor to edit that particular section to get rid of the boo-boos. Apparently the editor was asleep at the switch or non-existent because at least 20 places where editing should have been done to insure continuity with a smooth flow it was obviously sadly missed. The same thing can be said of the sequel, "Return To Reichenbach".

The finest reader on the planet is only as good as his audio editor and I am assuming that in these two cases the editor was out to lunch or not paying the slightest bit of attention. It degrades seriously an otherwise wonderful narration. Love Dominic's voice, love the story but you need to fire the editor.

Great story, but too many editing errors

Any additional comments?

Too many editing errors...stops and restarts repeated over and over again, and not edited out of the final product.

Disappointed

The narrator's mangling of the English language i.e. lilac pronounced lielack and data pronounced daataa was frequently annoying. Sherlock Holmes displayed no more intelligence than the average New York cop and none of the brilliant deducement displayed by Holmes in the Conan Doyle stories.

OK story marred by poor editing

The editing of this audiobook is unfinished. There are numerous times the narrator repeats himself and at least three occasions where he claps his hands to indicate to the director that an edit is needed. This combined with weird pacing at times makes the story hard to assess.
