Audible Editor Reviews

From the first line of Sir Arthur Conan Doyle’s The Adventure of the Norwood Builder, audiobook master performer Walter Covell expertly differentiates his voice between everyone’s favorite spy, Sherlock Holmes, and everyone’s favorite spy’s assistant, Dr. Watson. In this briskly told and briskly plotted audiobook, Covell and Doyle bring the listener into the mysterious details surrounding the murder of Jonas Oldacre, the Norwood builder, and John Hector McFarlane, a lawyer with evidence stacking up against him. With plot twists and colourful characters, The Adventure of the Norwood Builder is a Sherlock Holmes classic.

Publisher's Summary

"The Adventure of the Norwood Builder" is one of the 56 Sherlock Holmes short stories written by Sir Arthur Conan Doyle. It was the second tale published in The Return of Sherlock Holmes in 1903.

    I'm a mom. I have drama in my life. I don't want books with the F-bomb, nor graphic violence. I read for fun and to bring my family together. I read for reducing stress levels. We have never had a television in our home and our children are now mid twenties to 19. We listen together and look for belly-wrenching laughter. So what is it like to live without a TV? Awesomely educational and inspirational. Each new book is a marvel.

    "Enjoyed it but..."

    I enjoyed this story but it really jumped to the conclusion. I couldn't follow all of the assumptions of innocence. Great narration.
