    Arthur Conan Doyle never wasted time in getting his stories moving. His plots are always direct and refreshingly lucid, and the narrative has a velocity that sweeps you along right to the end. This was no doubt a large part of his immense worldwide success. Not surprisingly, each time he tried to end the series, his fans would howl in protest. But, as he says in the preface to his last collection of Sherlock Holmes stories, all good things must come to an end.

    "The Complete Stories of Sherlock Holmes Vol 1, 2 & 3" are each sold separately costing a credit each. You can get exactly the same three books for ONE credit. It's titled "The Complete Stories of Sherlock Holmes" without a Volume number. It clocks in at 70hrs and 53mins.

    Thich Nhat Hanh is a Vietnamese Buddhist monk whose lifelong efforts to generate peace and reconciliation moved Martin Luther King, Jr. to nominate him for the Nobel Peace Prize in 1967. Thay (pronounced Tie), as his followers call him, has written numerous books, travels extensively to offer teachings on the art of mindful living, and has been instrumental in introducing Buddhist concepts to the west.

    What disappointed you about Classic Dharma Talks?

    The audio was bad, the speaker kept repeating repeating repeating repeating repeating the same thing over and over. It was tedious. A tree is a tree...I heard you the first five times, move on..


    What was most disappointing about Thich Nhat Hanh’s story?

    The repetition of the same point.


    How did the narrator detract from the book?

    I did not have a problem understanding the speaker but I could see how someone might struggle with that aspect.


    If you could play editor, what scene or scenes would you have cut from Classic Dharma Talks?

    There's too much I would have edited from this book.


    Any additional comments?

    Waste of a credit.
