Duration: 4 hours 15 minutes

Summary:

A Study in Scarlet, a short novel published in 1887, was Sir Arthur Conan Doyle's first Sherlock Holmes story. At the beginning of the book, Dr. Watson meets the detective for the first time and we ride along with them to the scene of a murder. The crime baffles the Scotland Yard detectives, but of course Holmes solves it easily. In the second half of the story, the scene shifts to Utah as we learn the murderer's history. The action returns to London in the last two chapters. In his first adventure, Holmes demonstrates many of the traits for which he later became well known: meticulous study of a crime scene, brilliant deductive reasoning, aptitude for chemistry and music, and the somewhat annoying habit of withholding crucial facts from Watson (and consequently the reader) until the conclusion of the case. (Summary by Laurie Anne Walden)

    A bad choice for narrator. Found it spoils the story.

    Excellent introduction of the initial meeting of Holmes and Watson. Both serious and humorous at times.

    The narrator was great. My problem lies with the author Sir Arthur Conan Doyle because of his distorted portrayal of the Mormons. But I do enjoy mysteries and the way Sherlock Holmes solves them

    I loved Laurie’s narration. Her southern accent added a lot of character to the story
