The only problem I have with this series is that I am awaiting the next episode with impatience! I bought this after much comparing, I wanted a voice ..Show More »I could enjoy, one who could do a variety of voices, and a series that didn't end up costing a lot, as I intend to own every story. This is value for money, and worth the wait. The only improvement possible is a multiple cast, but I chose cost over that.
Well done! and thanks for getting back to me - there will be three volumes when finished, and the second is ready and due to be offered for download any time now.
The Memoirs of Sherlock Holmes (short stories, published in The Strand as additional episodes of The Adventures of Sherlock Holmes, between December, ..Show More »1892 and November, 1893):
The Adventure of Silver Blaze (The Adventure of The Cardboard Box) *(see below) The Adventure of The Yellow Face The Adventure of The Stockbroker's Clerk The Adventure of The "Gloria Scott" The Adventure of The Musgrave Ritual The Adventure of The Reigate Squires The Adventure of The Crooked Man The Adventure of The Resident Patient *(see below) The Adventure of The Greek Interpreter The Adventure of The Naval Treaty The Adventure of The Final Problem
*(I almost titled this review: "The Curious Case of The Switched Introductions" because The Adventure of the Cardboard Box, which is listed in the order it appears above in my physical book of Holmes stories, is absent from this audiobook, but the introduction to Cardboard Box suddenly pops up in the middle of the introduction to The Adventure of The Resident Patient. Very curious! I assume that, for whatever reason, it was decided that Cardboard Box wouldn't appear on this audiobook, but that the part of the introduction that shows how Holmes can deduce someone's thoughts from observing their facial expressions shouldn't be left out, so that section of the Cardboard box introduction was added to the Resident Patient introduction. Incidentally, what comes from this is that the scene changes from being a hot day in August to a windy day in October, so it can be confusing because one minute Watson is telling us that his service in India trained him to stand heat better than cold, and the next he's bundling up against the chilly night air.)
The Return of Sherlock Holmes (short stories, published in The Strand between October, 1903 and January, 1905):
The Adventure of The Empty House The Adventure of The Norwood Builder The Adventure of The Dancing Men The Adventure of The Solitary Cyclist The Adventure of The Priory School The Adventure of Black Peter The Adventure of Charles Augustus Milverton The Adventure of The Six Napoleons The Adventure of The Three Students The Adventure of The Golden Pince-Nez The Adventure of The Missing Three-Quarter The Adventure of The Abbey Grange The Adventure of The Second Stain
The Hound of The Baskervilles (novel, published in The Strand between August, 1901 and April, 1902)
(Chronologically "The Hound" appears before the stories of "The Return" in the canon, but I can see why it appears last on the audiobook, as one tends to want to hear of Holmes' return from his fate in The Final Problem right away.)
His Last Bow (short stories, published 1908-1913, 1917)
The Adventure of Wisteria Lodge The Adventure of the Cardboard Box*(see below) ..Show More »/>The Adventure of the Red Circle The Adventure of the Bruce-Partington Plans The Adventure of the Dying Detective The Adventure of Lady Frances Carfax The Adventure of the Devil's Foot His Last Bow (told in the third person)
The Valley of Fear (Serialized novel published 1914-1915)
The Casebook of Sherlock Holmes (short stories, published 1921-1927)
The Adventure of the The Illustrious Client The Adventure of the Blanched Soldier (Holmes narrates) The Adventure of the Mazarin Stone (told in the third person) The Adventure of the Three Gables The Adventure of the Sussex Vampire The Adventure of the Three Garridebs The Problem of Thor Bridge The Adventure of the Creeping Man The Adventure of the Lion's Man (Holmes narrates) The Adventure of the Veiled Lodger The Adventure of Shoscombe Old Place The Adventure of the Retired Colourman
*(The Adventure of the Cardboard Box chronologically appears in the canon in The Memoirs of Sherlock Holmes - circa 1892-1893 - but, for some reason, appears in this Volume 3 audiobook.)
