    "Nobody does it better!"
    Any additional comments?

    I have many versions of Sherlock Holmes in my audio library, but Derek Jacobi is the perfect narrator! This is one version that I listen to over and over.

    "A Perfect Pair"
    If you could sum up Sherlock Holmes: His Last Bow in three words, what would they be?

    a fun escape


    Did the plot keep you on the edge of your seat? How?

    It's short stories that I know well, so no, not on the edge of my seat.


    Which scene was your favorite?

    N/A


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

    Yes, but instead I listened to it to and from work.


    Any additional comments?

    I love Derek Jacobi's voice and reading of anything. I love Sherlock Holmes. So they are the perfect pair.

    "Splendid!"
    What did you love best about Sherlock Holmes: His Last Bow?

    The stories are magnificent and stand proudly among the best literature of all times.


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    Sherlock, naturally!


    Which character – as performed by Derek Jacobi – was your favorite?

    Again, Sherlock


    Any additional comments?

    Jacobi is a star and has outdone himself. But then he is a brilliant actor and reader.

    "Brilliant"

    You know Sherlock Holmes. You've seen adaptations on TV, you know his stories. But, listening/reading the books is just wonderful. By reading, you gain a deeper understanding of Holmes, of Watson, of Victorian England and Derek Jacobi is an amazing narrator. He is perfect for the job. Also, by reading some of the books you get the added bonus of the second part of the story which gives you the background to the current case. So even though you may be familiar with the stories, have a listen and instead of being preoccupied with 'who done it' (cos you probably know already), enjoy the journey and allow Holmes to lead you there in his own unique way.
