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.

    "Holmes at his best"

    The Hound of the Baskervilles might be my favorite Holmes story. I am a surprised fan. I definitely had a misconception of mystery novels. So even if you're not normally a fan of the mystery genre I strongly suggest a foray into Holmes.

    I'm a big fan of si-fi, but I'm finding that a love for mysteries budding up in me. I also like a lot of nonfiction.

    "The perfect flaws"



    I once heard is said that the best characters are the ones with flaws. Sherlock Holmes is one of the best examples of that. He is eccentric. He is so obsessed with facts and practicality that he seem heartless. Ironically he is willing to go above and beyond for people who are more deserving of he services. Even to the point that he will of letting the criminal go free if the crime was, at least in Sherlocke's opinion, justifiable. He is also a bit egotistical, but is willing to set his ego aside and admit he was wrong at times. Worst of all, he is constantly criticizing Watson for his lack of deduction as well as other issues, but Watson is the only person Sherlock Holmes ever loved. For those of you who believe relationships are important in a story , the relationship between Holmes and Watson is the perfect example of how true love between men can happen without sexual attraction.

    "Very enjoyable!"
    Would you listen to The Complete Stories of Sherlock Holmes, Volume 2 again? Why?

    Yes. I enjoy the stories and the performance. The stories are interesting mysteries without being gory or dirty like so much of the modern writing.


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    Dr. Watson. He portrays the story in a humble way even when he puts himself at risk and helps to solve the cases.


    What does Charlton Griffin bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

    The British accent that you would expect the characters to have as well as an American accent when the characters are American, etc.

    Didn't always like reading, minus RL Stine and Comic books. Then I found myself getting a BA in English Literature at UC Berkeley. During that time, I found it hard to read for fun so I started listen to audio books. I dig... The Classics (especially ancient lit) Tolkien Palahniuk AC Doyle Some Sci-Fy

    "AC Doyle Brings it!!"
    If you could sum up The Complete Stories of Sherlock Holmes, Volume 2 in three words, what would they be?

    Intriguing smooth talker


    What does Charlton Griffin bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

    Great voice; when I think Sherlock I hear Charlton Griffin.


    Any additional comments?

    As a fan of the Law and Order, I feel like this is OG for the 1890s. Formulaic? Yes. Enjoyable? Immensely! Worth getting without a doubt.

    "Very Enjoyable"

    It took me awhile to determine which narrator I liked, and in the end I'm glad I chose this version. Takes Holmes and Watson past the text, into personality and even idiosyncrasies. Brett is my standard, but I enjoyed this immensely.

    Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

    The stories are spellbinding. The performance is also quite wonderful, though in Part 4, in a few places, the narrator somehow mixed up the voices of Holmes and Watson, and had me confused for quite a while!
