Publisher's Summary

Volume two in this series consists of one novel, The Hound of the Baskervilles, and two collections of short stories, which include "Memoirs of Sherlock Holmes" and "The Return of Sherlock Holmes" (a total of 23 stories). These creations by Doyle represent the finest work of his Holmes series, and certainly the most famous. They are reproduced here (and in all volumes) in the order in which they were first published.

First appearing in print in 1890, the character of Sherlock Holmes has now become synonymous worldwide with the concept of a super sleuth. His creator, Conan Doyle, imbued his detective hero with intellectual power, acute observational abilities, a penchant for deductive reasoning and a highly educated use of forensic skills. Indeed, Doyle created the first fictional private detective who used what we now recognize as modern scientific investigative techniques. Doyle ended up writing four novels and 56 short stories featuring Holmes and his companion, Dr. Watson. All but four are told in the first person by Watson, two by Holmes, and two are written in the third person. Together, this series of beautifully written Victorian literature has sold more copies than any other books in the English language, with the exceptions of the Bible and Shakespeare.

    "A masterpiece of voice talent!"

    Some of the stories of Sir Arthur Conan Doyle I had read as a boy, and many I had seen on TV in the Grenada series, starring Jeremy Brett. This took nothing away from my enjoyment of this series of books, masterfully read and performed by your narrator! I look forward to getting the rest of the series in the coming months. Well done!

    "A monumental undertaking!"

    I am amazed that Charlton Griffin did not expire giving this performance. It is lengthy, maybe a tad overlong, but an excellent and faithful delivery of the extensive Holme's catalogue. Well worth the effort.

    "Wonderful Classic brought to life"

    I loved re-entering the World of Sherlock Holmes, and the narrator does a splendid job with different voices for the different characters. Only one point was not perfect - his womens voices are a bit annoying in the long run. But SHerlock and Watson are spot-on!

    "sherlock holmes vol 2"

    loved every minute of it. narrator is spot on. going to go for volume 3. love the spooky noises in hound of baskerfield. have read all of sherlocks series but listening to it all again takes it up another level. never change the narrator for these kinds of books. he is to be commended.

    "Enjoyed these classics"

    Some of the pronunciation of words were a bit off, but the intensity of the stories and build up to to each story climax was magnificent. Different individuals were easily recognized so the plot was easy to follow. Now for book 3

    "many good stories.."
    What made the experience of listening to The Complete Stories of Sherlock Holmes, Volume 2 the most enjoyable?

    Even though the book was long and had many different stories they were all very good. I can't remember all of them but there are a few which stand out to me.


    Did the plot keep you on the edge of your seat? How?

    The plot that stands out to me that kept me on my seat was the story about the husband and wife who were being harassed by an ex lover of the wife and in the end they were both found dead. It may have appeared to be murder but it wasn't only the husband was murdered and the wife committed suicide in order to be with her husband in death..


    Which character – as performed by Charlton Griffin – was your favorite?

    I like how he did watson.. he is actually one of my favorite characters.


    If you could rename The Complete Stories of Sherlock Holmes, Volume 2, what would you call it?

    Volume 2, because it is still a bunch of different stories told by watson about his interaction with sherlock. To me I like the volume in the title because I can imagine watson sitting at his deal with a book like a diary and writing all these, so the title works for me.

    "After all the "Sherlocks" from TV and movies, ahh!"

    Narration is clear, easy to understand. Voices are easy to differentiate. Female voices not falsetto.

    "Mind Over Matter"

    Sherlock is, in short, brilliant. This collection of stories supports that fact. I downloaded this and could not stop listening to it. I will listen to it again and again and learn something new each time. Doyle's development of his main character and his loyal friend Doctor Watson was, is, and will be unparalleled in police and detective stories.

    "Charles Griffin is fabulous"

    The narration of Sherlock Holmes stories is absolutely fantastic. Very fun and enjoyable. Holmes becomes a known acquaintance and is quaint and admirable. Watson is a perfect foil and easy to sympathize and identify with. Highly recommended!
