    "A Table of Contents & Audible Part/Chapter Notes"

    I purchased the Kindle version of this 4-volume Complete Sherlock Holmes set before this was available. Hopefully, Amazon will Whispersync this pair some day. In the meantime I hope that this TOC outline will help some listeners find particular stories they might be looking for.

    The Audible Part/Chapter Notes refer to the 7-part download. My setting is for downloading in one file, but on very large volumes Audible breaks them up anyway. My notations for (Part # Chapter #) refer to the Audible download "Part" and the "Chapter" within each part.

    "Great voice for this book"
    Would you consider the audio edition of The Complete Sherlock Holmes to be better than the print version?

    No, but that is almost impossible. Any reading is just a reading of a masterful work. There are many artists who recorded the various Sherlock Holmes novels and short stories. An there will be more, but Simon Vance is the best that I've encountered yet.


    Any additional comments?

    My only complaint is that this is one file. You won't be able to go to a specific book or short story. This is 58 hours in one file. This would have been much better as 9 works, each with chapters. Still, this is a good way to listen to all the books beginning to end.

    "Excellent value for money"

    It took some time for all of Sir Arthur Conan Doyle’s Sherlock Holmes stories to be collected into one audio omnibus. It took me almost just as much time to listen to Brilliance Audio’s ‘The Complete Sherlock Holmes: The Heirloom.’

    This enormous collection of the whole original Sherlock Holmes canon is read by Simon Vance from the 1887 edition of ‘A Study in Scarlet;’ 1890 ‘Sign of Four;’ 1891 ‘Adventures of Sherlock Holmes;’ 1892 ‘Memoirs of Sherlock Holmes;’ 1902 ‘The Hound of the Baskervilles;’ 1903 ‘The Return of Sherlock Holmes,’ 1914 ‘The Valley of Fear;’ 1917 ‘His Last Bow’ and 1927 ‘The Casebook of Sherlock Holmes.’ In short the whole collection of Sherlock Holmes stories by the original author is contained in this audio production, not only the best adventures of Sherlock Holmes but every single one of them. It adds up to more than 56 hours of listening time.

    By adding Simon Vance’s voice to the complete collection of Sherlock Holmes stories, you don’t only get to listen to all the stories about the great detective. Vance has been awarded 10 Audie awards and 48 Earphone awards and has over 30 years of experience in recording audio books as a voice artist. He is an excellent narrator who has the ability to enliven the world of the narrative, helping you live through every moment of suspense, violence and intriguing detective work.

    In ‘The Complete Sherlock Holmes: The Heirloom’ the master of freelance crime investigation is paired with a master of voice. It becomes extremely affordable when you pair this powerful combination with an Audible credit. It is one of those quality bargains you should not resist!

    "Almost perfect"

    Simon Vance is the perfect narrator for Holmes; I was hoping he'd do them someday, and now suddenly out of nowhere he's done all of them. Absolutely no complaints about the narration. I recently listenend to all the stories read by Derek Jacobi, and now I'm in the process of listening to them again. As always, Vance's perfectly modulated voice brings out nuances I've missed, despite having read (and listened to) the stories many, many times.

    Despite the crime-solving framework, these really aren't plot-driven stories. What I enjoy more than anything - and the thing I remember most vividly - is the wonderful variety of characters that inhabit this world. Holmes is at the top of the list, but Watson has his own charm and mystery (not the least of which is the way his war wound moves around). And the clients! Jabez Wilson. All the women named Violet. The wonderful thumbnail sketch of the budding young psychopath in "The Copper Beeches." The dying John Turner. Mycroft. Stapleton. Barrymore and his wife. And to top them all off, the dog in the night-time.

    The stories are not all first-rate. I could do without most of the stories in "The Casebook of Sherlock Holmes," and there are a couple of duds in the earlier collections. But even some of the duds - like "A Case of Identity" - have a fascinating character study at their core. And the duds are outnumbered by one tightly-packed gem after another.

    My only complaint is the same one others have mentioned: the way the books have been divided up across the files. It would have been convenient if the series were grouped into files by book rather than by an arbitrary file length.

    But that's really a minor quibble, and in any case it may change if the publisher listens to feedback. It doesn't affect my rating. If you're on the fence about which Holmes collection to get, get this one.

    "Classic Stories Well Narrated"

    58 hours of unsearchable material is too much. I am a lifetime fan of Sherlock Holmes short stories, but find the novels dull. I would like to be able to readily skip or locate specific stories. A pdf index of the stories would help tremendously. Simon Vance provides an engaging narration.

    "I'm in heaven"

    Can you ask for anything better than the complete Sherlock Holmes collection narrated by Simon Vance and for just one credit. When I found this selection it went immediately into my wish list and downloaded as soon as my new credit came up. I have not had time to listen to all 58 hours yet, but have been skipping around, sampling old favorites, starting with "A Scandal in Bohemia". Holmes has never sounded so good. For Sherlock fans this is a must.

    As other reviewers have noted, the downloads do not give the names of the selections - just chapter numbers. But thanks to reviewer "Santa Fe Painter" the table of contents for each download part is listed. I did a cut-and-paste and printed out this list for reference. I did note that the numbering on his list is slightly different from how my download appears - for each download part, where his list says Chapter 2, make it Chapter 1 and adjust the numbering from there. Then off you go - the game's afoot!

    "Case of the Glowing Review"
    Who was your favorite character and why?

    Of course I love Sherlock. But a great thing about this edition is that the books are in chronological order, which makes it easy to distinguish between the crisp analytical Sherlock of the late 19th century and the more philosophical moralizing Sherlock of the 20th.


    Have you listened to any of Simon Vance’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

    The reader was perfect for the part.

    "Perfection for Holmes Fans"
    What made the experience of listening to The Complete Sherlock Holmes the most enjoyable?

    What could be more perfect? The brilliant Arthur Conan Doyle and the impeccable Simon Vance.


    What was one of the most memorable moments of The Complete Sherlock Holmes?

    Simon Vance is the perfect narrator. He is so talented and so good in the narration of his characters that no one else could do this work justice. If there is a genius narrator, Mr. Vance is it.

    If you are a Holmes fan, I don't have to say it. You already own this book!

    "Essential for any Holmes fan!"
    Where does The Complete Sherlock Holmes rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

    This is the best audiobook I've got so far - absolutely captivating and it really captures the flavour of the original, legendary, stories.


    What did you like best about this story?

    One of my favourite collections, I wasn't sure this would translate well to audio but have been pleasantly surprised and it feels like discovering them all over again.


    Which character – as performed by Simon Vance – was your favourite?

    Excellent performance - capturing Holmes and Watson very well - without making any real effort to "act" the parts. His voice is a perfect vehicle for these stories.


    Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

    No chance! This is an audiobook that I will be dipping in to for a long, long time to come!


    Any additional comments?

    Highly recommended - whether you have read Conan Doyle before, or not!

    "Stunning stories, excellent performance"
    Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

    Oh yes, I would recommend this book. The stories are good and Simon Vance performes it with great gusto. The whole is very enjoyable indeed!


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    It's hard not to pick Sherlock Holmes himself. Mr Vance gives him such a great character, it's a joy to listen to. He really comes to life.


    What about Simon Vance’s performance did you like?

    My Vance uses his voice to his best advantage by giving all the characters their own voice, he even does a reasonable female voice! And when he doesn't keep up the, of necessity rather strenuous, use of these female voices continually, they still remain believable. In short, a joy to listen to, time and time again!


    If you made a film of this book, what would be the tag line be?

    The unabridged Sherlock Holmes - come and see!


    Any additional comments?

    A must for all Sherlock Holmes lovers!

    "And yet......and yet...."
    What did you like most about The Complete Sherlock Holmes?

    It's Holmes, what's not to like? It feels to me like everyone must be familiar with these stories....


    What other book might you compare The Complete Sherlock Holmes to, and why?

    There's nothing quite like the orginal Holmes stories....there are many imitators, but that's not quite the same thing now, is it?


    Have you listened to any of Simon Vance’s other performances? How does this one compare?

    Vance's performances are uniformly excellent and were the main reason for me choosing to re-visit the Holmes canon in audibook format. I first came across his work many years ago in a performance of Arturo PerezReverte's "Purity of Blood" and since then I've yet to be disappointed by anything of his to which I have listened.


    Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

    Holmes stories are many things to many people but I can't really imagine any of them being described as 'moving'. This is not a fault, in my opinion. To use a much-overused phrase "they are what they are".

    Would you listen to The Complete Sherlock Holmes again? Why?

    I listen to the this complete collection over and over again. I find something different everytime and have now bookmarked each chapter so I can find my favourite stories eaaily. Simon vance is brilliant and really brings these amazing stories to life.


    What was one of the most memorable moments of The Complete Sherlock Holmes?

    The hound of baskervilles and charles august milverton are memorable stories..


    What does Simon Vance bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you had only read the book?

    Simon vance voice acting is brilliant and I now deliberately listen to books he has voiced as he brings the books to life.


    If you made a film of this book, what would be the tag line be?

    There's been plenty of film adaptations and tv series of the books. The latest being on the BBC, set in modern day andbcompletely faithful to Arthur Conan Doyle's stories


    Any additional comments?

    Just brilliant

    What did you like most about The Complete Sherlock Holmes?

    Even though the Sherlock Holmes stories are familiar to almost everyone through the printed page, films and TV series, the audiobook is a new and refreshing way of experiencing them. Great on car journeys and good value for one member credit: the quantity of material will last for many miles!


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    Surprisingly, Dr Watson, who emerges as a sympathetic and emotional character.


    What about Simon Vance’s performance did you like?

    Simon Vance has a pleasantly mellifluous voice and distinguishes between the dialogue of the different characters effectively but without overdoing the changes of timbre and accent.


    Did you have an emotional reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

    Just enjoyable to follow the plots.

    This audiobook is superb! I'm new to Sherlock Holmes but am now a convert and intend to read all the stories. Sherlock is a great literary creation, who it seems has not been done justice by the various TV and films I've seen. I've had this on while decorating the house for hours on end and I'm just not tiring of hearing of Holmes' and Watson's adventures. The narrator has just the right voice and he does a great job of bringing the characters to life, particulalry Holmes. For stories and narrator performance this is the best audiobook I've bought so far. Add to that the superb value and you just can't go wrong. If you have been disappointed as some other listeners have by other readings of holmes with "unusual" accents or pronunciation, give this a try.
