Best narration by far!

What made the experience of listening to Holmes and Watson: An Evening in Baker Street the most enjoyable?

The outstanding voice work by Kevin Theis made this a truly delightful experience. I've listened to many books on Audible, and Theis is, by far, the best narrator and actor I have heard.

Who was your favorite character and why?

Holmes was probably my favorite character, though there were so many others, it's a tough call. Wiggins and Inspector Robertson were fun - loved their accents!

Have you listened to any of Kevin Theis’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

Yes, several others. This was one of his best because of his incredible voice characterizations and accents. It was almost more radio play than narration. You had a sense of being in the room with the characters.

Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

The ending of the "Loch Ness Affair"... "But, Mr. Holmes... Dr. Watson... the paddle steamer did not run, yesterday evening." Cue sinister organ music. Very humorous.

Any additional comments?

A very charming story, made thoroughly enjoyable by Kevin Theis' expert narration.

Kevin Theis is the real deal

As a friend, I've seen Kevin act. I've been honored to share a stage or two with him -- once, even. when he played Sherlock Holmes.

But he nevertheless astonishes me with his ability to disappear into a character. Here, he disappears into several, and it's a delight.

Great listening for Holmes fans.
