Once I listen to some parts more than once I got the pace ot the story. Truthfully I did have ot go back a few time to get it. Once I got the pace, it very much is Sherlock Holmes if you are a fan. And I am.
The moment that Watson realized what the House of Silk really was.
I think it would depends on the author he is reading for. The pace of his reading is to me very slow. It's different. Once you get that pace, the story can be enjoyed.
I'm sure that the couple wasn't the only one with files full of names. Part II in Ireland, Wales, or Scotland. "The Fall of the House of Silk"
I love Sherlock Holmes so I would read or listen to anything that continues the stories. There weren't that many books and only a few dozen stories. I welcome good stories.
Great narration, great story, I enjoyed the whole thing. It is what it is… A fun listen and well done.
This is a great continuation of the Sherlock legacy. I recommend. And read by one of the best actors ever. Wonderful.
After having read many of the original Doyle Sherlock Holmes stories, I found this fits right into the canon! And therefore an obvious choice for the estate of Sir Arthur Conan Doyle to finally approve a continuing Sherlock series. Derek Jacobi is spectacular! The writing style is elegant. A real "throwback" to a possibly greater time in creative writing... certainly a more reserved time, but in many ways more eloquent and beautiful.
Derek Jacobi did a wonderful job with narration but this is NOT Doyle's Sherlock Holmes. This Sherlock is much more open to explaining his methods and generally a more personable Holmes than Doyle's. Good story anyway with a definate "Holmesian" feel
