The Adventures of Sherlock Holmes

Unabridged Audiobook

Written By: Sir Arthur Conan Doyle

Narrated By: Mark F. Smith

Publisher: LibriVox

Date: January 2012

Duration: 11 hours 17 minutes

Summary:

Dr. Watson chronicles here some of the more interesting detective cases that he and his good friend, Mr. Sherlock Holmes, have encountered during their association. We see the cases unfold as he does, scratch our heads as does he while the evidence is collected, and then marvel at the impeccable observations, remarkable insight, and doggedness which Holmes displays as he teases apart the tangled clues.

Packaged as twelve distinct cases, by the end of this book your own senses of observation and deductive reasoning should be improved. It's easy to see why this book became a model for detective yarns!

    Good short stories but didn't expect it to be all over the place like that with no central storyline. The reader did a decent job but there were some words that he pronounced wrong and it annoyed me every time he said them.

    Great writing and fascinating characters especially Holmes himself. Narrator Mark Smith is very good but would be even better if he were able to use an English accent since all the characters are from England.

    Enjoyed every one of the stories. I agree with other reviews in that a British accent narration would have made this even better.

    Fantastic read, loads of personality ! Reader did a fantastic job with voice and character changes. Interesting stories set in Europe at the turn of the century. Looking forward to more reads by this author.

    Obviously the content of this book is great, as it is Sherlock Holmes. However, the narrator also did a wonderful job in reading the story. He provided different voices for the different characters making the story easier to follow, as well as having a good voice. This title is worth downloading and listening to. Enjoy.
