    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.

    Story

    I enjoyed this series when i read the stories years ago. It was enjoyable having the story read to me by Mr Griffin. The voices were pretty good and the women were pretty much in the same voice. As to the reviewer who commented that the voices were done by older people, especially the women, They were all done by Mr Griffin!! The story was acted, not just read in a monotone as other books i have listened to.

  • 11-22-63: A Novel

    Story
    (16576)

    On November 22, 1963, three shots rang out in Dallas, President Kennedy died, and the world changed. What if you could change it back? In this brilliantly conceived tour de force, Stephen King - who has absorbed the social, political, and popular culture of his generation more imaginatively and thoroughly than any other writer - takes listeners on an incredible journey into the past and the possibility of altering it.
