I would recommend this to a friend if they were not avid Holmes fans. I found this book to be too heavy on narration and not enough exchange between characters.
No it did not. I do not think it was because of the story line though.
Perk up Robin.
The Return of Moriarty; An Explanation: Sherlock Holmes' Nemesis Lives Again
For the whole first section of the book, the narrator was to humdrum. Most of what he read was without stress where needed, or not enough stress. I might be feeling this way because I am spoiled. I have read MANY books where Susan Boyce is the narrator. That lady has spark in her voice.
I don't think anyone would enjoy it more.
The title misrepresents the book. To mention Sherlock Holmes in the title, one would, when reading the title, expect to find out of 12 stories, at least 25% of Sherlock Holmes.
So the author adds some short quote from Holmes stories...!!! This does not give the right to represent the book as ...and Sherlock Holmes".....
This question does not compute when you consider this book had 12 stories in it and I was looking for Sherlock Holmes stories.
Anything that had nothing to do with Holmes, so 95% of the book would be cut.
Don't waste your money if you are looking for Holmes stories.
I just LOVE this book! It is one you can't put down once you start it. Did a search on audible and did not find Part 2, so I guess that is yet to come. Can't wait.
The story line is well written. Reader does a great job.
This is a really great story. It kept my attention through out the whole story. Audio and narration were superb. Will there be more to this story> Would love to see at least a book 2.
If you are looking for a good method of finding inner peace, this is the book for you. AMAZING!
This short excerpt shows me why I can still safely hate Obama.
I would not personally enrich his pockets with my money by buying this book.
