It is so far the best I've heard. It's so long, yet it never gets boring!
For me, the pleasure is in the dialogue. The lines exchanged between Holmes and Watson are priceless. The plot is always interesting and ends with a surprising twist.
I've only listened to the Sherlock Holmes books.
Sherlock Holmes. Who could compete with such an interesting character? He has the rare combination of cool intellect and gentlemanly charm.
Perhaps the manner of speech in this book was commonplace when it was written, but it is very refreshing to anyone who is sick of lazy writing in many modern productions.
yes, but only from the perspective of ease. I listened to it on a road trip.
Obviously the way Sherlock Holmes explained how he resolved the crimes.
His characterization of Sherlock was a bit different than I had pictured in my head, but in a good way.

Best mystery writer ever
I have read the Sherlock Holmes stories since I was a kid, but really enjoyed listening to them. Great narration. Never read "Study in Scarlet", the first story, but definitely one of the best.
I really enjoyed these stories. The reading was fantastic, engaging, and lots of fun. Having only experienced the Sherlock stories via the British show, this was a great way to get back to its beginnings.
Perhaps, but I rarely re-read books. I will share it with my housemate.
No, but I knew what to expect as a Sherlock Holmes fan. It was entertaining.
He brings the characters alive.
Sherlock Holmes of course. He is the reason for the stories told.
A good buy.
The Holmes stories have been done and re-done many times. In recent years there has been a trend to "spice up" the stories with mixed results. Fortunately this series is straightforward and faithful. The readings are not overly dramatic, just the right amount. Particularly nice is the opening history of Dr. Watson-something that is not commonly read or presented.
Holmes. He's a cool character.
I really like the stories. I use this collection as filler. When I haven't decided what I want to listen to next I'll listen to a couple of these stories because each one is relatively short and they're entertaining.
I have always enjoyed listening to Holmes stories. This one is among the best as it also contains many of those I don't have in my library already.
Mr. Griffin does a very good job at relating the stories. He is engaged and kept my interest as well.
I like a good mystery and Sherloch Holmes' logic is engrossing. It made very good listening.
The facts and solutions for each of the stories were very well presented and were thus most interesting
Enjoyed the period in which each of adventures took place.
No as I liked to ponder each of the stories before continuing to the next.
