    "This version is complete"
    Any additional comments?

    I don't want to nitpick Tad's excellent review, but he is inaccurate on one point.

    This version, as of April 2012, includes all twelve short stories collected in 1892 as "The Adventures of Sherlock Holmes", including "The Red-Headed League," and "The Adventure of the Speckled Band."

    "Great narration, but missing a couple"

    Simon Prebble does an excellent job narrating this first collection of Sherlock Holmes stories. No complaints there. But the collection is marred by Tantor's decision to omit the two stories (Speckled Band and Red-Headed League) they'd already made available as "bonuses" on two of the novels.

    In other words, if you want all of the short stories, you have to buy the whole set of recordings, including the four novels. (I'm planning to do that, but others may have preferred not to.) There's something to said, too, for being able to listen to the stories in their published sequence. This unfortunate marketing ploy makes that less convenient.

    "Mismatched Characters"

    The only good thing about this story, the actors are English. The person speaking in Holmes' role is not suited to the part at all, in fact, he makes the story dull and cringe worthy. Holmes is smart with razor sharp wit, well educated and one would assume with a well spoken and modulated voice. What we have instead is a high falsetto, wringing, nasally voiced whimp, who sounds more like a lip wristed fop than that of a shrewd detective. I can't even listen to him he's that bad. Watson on the other had is good and sounds like the Watson in character. The other thing I found funny was, in one of the stories, Holmes is in Italy painting and sees what he describes as a women, who is old (in those times) as 30 years of age being mugged for her handbag. The women cast sounded nothing like 30 but of 50 or over. Please, a little more thinking could of gone into the casting of these roles. I've ranked it extremely low because I can't stand the Holmes portrayed in this version. If it was my choice, it would be back to Basil Rathbone or Ian Richards.
