I started listening driving my son from Washington DC to Northern NJ because I thought he would like it, too. (He slept most of the way but has some memory of "A Study in Emerald" and enjoyed it.) Sometimes books read by the author are particularly enjoyable,as in this case - especially since some of these stories are from childhood and are presented with the proper accent. He sometimes does American accents - not great but not too anoying.

Neil is one of the rare writers who can read his own work and not make a person cringe!

I also found this to be the case with Philip Pullman who does an excellent job reading His Dark Materials. As the OP says, theres a definite bonus to hearing an author read their own work.
