Intriguing, interesting, unpredictable.
Always the conclusions reached from the observations made to details.
Each character portrayed professionally, unique to each role.
Laugh at times.
What a pleasant book/audiobook to experience. I listened to the audio version that was like listening to the Radio during its heyday. The actors superb performances show the story so vividly. The interjection of a character's dialogue with another's, interruptions in speech, is so realistic; it displays the great talent of Arthur Conan Doyle.
The uncanny deductive reasoning, Sherlock Holmes wraps up each case in a neat, clever, conclusion that astounds and entertains the reader. I am taken to each environment by the articulate narration which is only used to describe a change in location, a significant object, and/or buildings in a scene. The story unfolds with clarity and vision through the characters' words and voice inflections.
"A singular experience"
An outstanding, authentic and atmospheric rendition of Conan Doyle's most famous creation. The BBC production wavers little from the original and is simply wonderful. A must for anyone wanting the real thing!
I am continuously so satisfied by these bbc audio dramas of Sherlock Holmes that I sometimes wonder if I'll ever stop listening to them. The great thing about them is that they are so layered you could listen repeatedly and find something new each time!
Do not waste another second in hesitation and purchase this book, you will love it.
"Fantastic Sherlock Production - Love It"
Yet another fantastic performance by Clive & Michael. The Engineers Thumb is one not seen much on screen, but a most enjoyable Sherlock. A delight to have this full cast version to listen to over & over at leisure & add to my Sherlock collection. Stephen Tomlinson plays a good naive out of work engineer & quite convincing when the nasty bit happens to him. I enjoy this one the more times I listen. Love it!
