I listen to many audiobooks and review the ones I find most notable.
I enjoyed this. This is a collection of Sherlock Holmes stories. Each story is full of Holmes goodness. Some are better than others, but I liked them all in varying degrees. Definitely a worthwhile compilation. If you've never read a Holmes story before, Sherlock Holes is a brilliant but troubled man. He's also kind of a jerk. But, the stories are very approachable and even funny at times. The mysteries are interesting. I suggest you give these stories a try.
A Scandal in Bohemia

This narrator is great.
The story is well known and fantastic so, the only point of interest is narration. It wasn't entirely expected, the narrators voice is a touch high for my taste. However, what the narrator lacks in depth, he makes up for with versatility. Characters feel distinct and different with little confusion due to similarities. A throughly wonderful audio book.
BJ does a fantastic job narrating. Most of the book it is pretty obvious who is speaking based on the accents and tone BJ uses. He's not perfect in his accents but it's not bad at all and gives you a real feel for the tale Doyle is weaving. Harrison's Sherlock voice feels spot on for the character.
The stories are about an hour long each and fascinating, albeit formulaic in their delivery. It's like watching an hour long detective show but better!
It's Sherlock Holmes, ya get what ya see on the box. So, needless to say, I enjoyed it. But some may find some of the stories dry, even predictable. Or ya might find Dr. Watson's voice is a bit irritating. However, I say again, I liked it. You probably will too.
