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 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.

    "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!

    "A warm WELCOME to 221B Baker Street!"

    I first visited 221B Baker Street around '93 - reading through a paperback edition of the complete stories of Sherlock Holmes. I, then, became a regular visitor through the auspices of Granada films - then a hardcover "Annotated Sherlock Holmes" and, now this excellent 3 volume compilation on Audible.
    I, first, began engaging in "A Study in Scarlet" (Volume 1, chapter 1) and followed the clues till I arrived at "Shoscombe Old Place" (Volume 3, chapter 16). Since then I have often skipped through one volume or other till I found an adventure that suited my mood at the time. This 3 volume compilation is among my most frequent listens in my entire library!
    For something less daunting to peruse I'd also recommend the Audible book "Sherlock Holmes (Dramatized)", a radio play rendition of 12 adventures and the Patrick Tull renditions of the major Sherlock Holes adventures; "The Hound of the Baskervilles" and such.

    I teach high school physics and read/listen to books in my free time. My favorite genres are history, sci fi, fantasy, and science writing.

    "Sherlock at His Best"
    Where does The Complete Stories of Sherlock Holmes, Volume 2 rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

    It honestly ranks somewhere in the middle. But, that is not to say it isn't very good. Doyle wrote terrifically intricate stories and Griffon does a great job at making the characters come to life.


    Any additional comments?

    Anyone who enjoys procedural shows on TV will probably love getting a look a where they all began.

    "Awesome, Fantastic, click Run Download now"

    I read most of the stories as a boy, and now have heard Volume 1 and 2. If you like Arthur Conan Doyle then you will love this version with the excellent narration by Griffin. It is tough for a man to speak for the woman, but there are not many female parts. That maybe the only negative in my view. Others provided the list that is included with this version, and there are lots of crimes and non-crimes to solve in volume 2.
    Sherlock Holmes is one of my favorite audible books, and I have heard over 30 books so far. Each of these stories is about 50 minutes of less which is perfect for my commute. I listened to the same story twice as I try to solve the crime like Holmes. I am sure you will enjoy.

    "Shockingly Modern"

    I’ve been sampling the “classics” more for a few years. I have mixed feelings about the classics, as a group. Both time and the “wisdom of the crowd” are a powerful filter, but sometimes the gap in world views is a problem. For example Aristotle’s word view was just too un-modern for me glean much from his writings. In contrast Plato requires only a modest ability to explore less modern paradigm and many of his gyms are trivially transported to a modern context.

    Sherlock Holms felt like it was written today and merely set in the past. It was truly amazing. The only tell was slight aversion to gore (which I rather think is not such a bad thing).

    It is targeted at the young reader, but very inter-generational. It’s the perfect book to read to your children or grandchildren.
