  • The House of Silk: A Sherlock Holmes Novel

    • UNABRIDGED (10 hrs and 24 mins)
    • By Anthony Horowitz
    • Narrated By Derek Jacobi

    Sherlock Holmes is the greatest detective in literary history. For the first time since the death of Sir Arthur Conan Doyle, a new Holmes story has been sanctioned by his estate, whetting the appetites of fans everywhere. Information about the book will be revealed as deliberately as Holmes himself would unravel a knotty case, but bestselling novelist and Holmes expert Anthony Horowitz is sure to bring a compelling, atmospheric story to life.

    Story

    Beautifully written and phenomenally well performed. The story, the writing, and the narration have to be among Audible's best. It is so exciting that Audible has been able to retain the likes of Derek Jacobi to read the text. It makes the prose doubly entertaining.

  • The End of the Affair

    Graham Greene’s evocative analysis of the love of self, the love of another, and the love of God is an English classic that has been translated for the stage, the screen, and even the opera house. Academy Award-winning actor Colin Firth (The King’s Speech, A Single Man) turns in an authentic and stirring performance for this distinguished audio release.

    Any additional comments?

    This book is easily one of the top 5 Audible books I have purchased. The combination of the brilliance of Graham Greene's prose with Colin Firth's superlative narration results in a true masterpiece of the spoken word art form.
    The writer's description of the inner workings of both Sarah and Morris's tortured minds, punctuated by Mr. Firth's flawless performance, is un forgettable and is rich with universal themes.
    I am sure Mr. Firth is expensive...but I think thousands of us would buy any book he might narrate just to experience the power of his eloquent performance.
