I think I finished this in one day. Could not put it down! Well written.
Characters are real and keep your interest. I especially like how Mattie is maturing emotionally. I am up to date with reading all books in the series and recommend them highly for 18 or older.

Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

I would recommend this to a friend if they were not avid Holmes fans. I found this book to be too heavy on narration and not enough exchange between characters.

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

No it did not. I do not think it was because of the story line though.

What three words best describe Robin Sachs’s performance?

Perk up Robin.

If you were to make a film of this book, what would be the tag line be?

The Return of Moriarty; An Explanation: Sherlock Holmes' Nemesis Lives Again

Any additional comments?

For the whole first section of the book, the narrator was to humdrum. Most of what he read was without stress where needed, or not enough stress. I might be feeling this way because I am spoiled. I have read MANY books where Susan Boyce is the narrator. That lady has spark in her voice.

This book wasn’t for you, but who do you think might enjoy it more?

I don't think anyone would enjoy it more.

What was most disappointing about David Grann’s story?

The title misrepresents the book. To mention Sherlock Holmes in the title, one would, when reading the title, expect to find out of 12 stories, at least 25% of Sherlock Holmes.

So the author adds some short quote from Holmes stories...!!! This does not give the right to represent the book as ...and Sherlock Holmes".....

Which character – as performed by Mark Deakins – was your favorite?

This question does not compute when you consider this book had 12 stories in it and I was looking for Sherlock Holmes stories.

If you could play editor, what scene or scenes would you have cut from The Devil and Sherlock Holmes?

Anything that had nothing to do with Holmes, so 95% of the book would be cut.

Any additional comments?

Don't waste your money if you are looking for Holmes stories.

I just LOVE this book! It is one you can't put down once you start it. Did a search on audible and did not find Part 2, so I guess that is yet to come. Can't wait.

The story line is well written. Reader does a great job.

This short excerpt shows me why I can still safely hate Obama.
I would not personally enrich his pockets with my money by buying this book.
