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.

    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.

    "A great listen!"
    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!

    "Disappointing performance vs Part 1"
    Is there anything you would change about this book?

    Couldn't listen 10 minutes... Part 1 is much more interestingly acted and easier to understand.


    Was The Complete Stories of Sherlock Holmes, Volume 2 worth the listening time?

    no

    "Not complete"

    These Volumes are misleading in that they do NOT comprise the "Complete" stories. It lacks "The Valley of Fear", the collection of "His Last Bow", and the collection of "The Case Book of Sherlock Holmes". Where are these missing stories, and why are buyers being mislead?
