Publisher's Summary

Volume two in this series consists of one novel, The Hound of the Baskervilles, and two collections of short stories, which include "Memoirs of Sherlock Holmes" and "The Return of Sherlock Holmes" (a total of 23 stories). These creations by Doyle represent the finest work of his Holmes series, and certainly the most famous. They are reproduced here (and in all volumes) in the order in which they were first published.

First appearing in print in 1890, the character of Sherlock Holmes has now become synonymous worldwide with the concept of a super sleuth. His creator, Conan Doyle, imbued his detective hero with intellectual power, acute observational abilities, a penchant for deductive reasoning and a highly educated use of forensic skills. Indeed, Doyle created the first fictional private detective who used what we now recognize as modern scientific investigative techniques. Doyle ended up writing four novels and 56 short stories featuring Holmes and his companion, Dr. Watson. All but four are told in the first person by Watson, two by Holmes, and two are written in the third person. Together, this series of beautifully written Victorian literature has sold more copies than any other books in the English language, with the exceptions of the Bible and Shakespeare.

    "A masterpiece of voice talent!"

    Some of the stories of Sir Arthur Conan Doyle I had read as a boy, and many I had seen on TV in the Grenada series, starring Jeremy Brett. This took nothing away from my enjoyment of this series of books, masterfully read and performed by your narrator! I look forward to getting the rest of the series in the coming months. Well done!

    "A monumental undertaking!"

    I am amazed that Charlton Griffin did not expire giving this performance. It is lengthy, maybe a tad overlong, but an excellent and faithful delivery of the extensive Holme's catalogue. Well worth the effort.

    The narration, the stories, what more could I ask for. My only regret is not giving it 10 stars.

    "Classic Holmes, perfect voice"

    This audio book is awesome as it isn't hard to pick up and lay down, but still every time being completely immersed due to Griffin's perfect old school voice.
    The sherlock series are also great as they give you insight into manners and customs back in the 19th century. The way they spoke was always amusing and interesting to listen to. Some of the stories can become a bit tedious and absurd, but the majority were quite enjoyable.

    "QUAINT AND QUIET"

    I have just finished listening to all three volumes of this set. I thoroughly enjoyed the quiet and quaint stories and story-telling. While driving, I found myself relaxed and transported to another place and time. Often I was prepared to correctly guess the results of the investigation by Mr S H. Just as often, I was guessing until the end of each story. Doyle's expressions in literature were also amusing and I mused often on what would happen today should a writer use the same expressions. If you get the series, prepare to be entertained in a way that will engage your imagination and relax your mind. This is not a series to criticize but to drink in with slow steady intention like a great brew or a fine wine.

    "Amazing classics from an amazing cast and so much value for the money"

    You can literally listen to this for like a whole month. And it's classic, including the hound of Baskerville at the end. Stunning read as well, and some scoring.
