Nobody does it better!

Any additional comments?

I have many versions of Sherlock Holmes in my audio library, but Derek Jacobi is the perfect narrator! This is one version that I listen to over and over.

Quite charming and original.

Even though the stories follow the same general formula, they still manage to have some individuality from the next, leaving you wanting more especially in the adventure of The Cornish Horror.

Sherlockian Logic Keeps Us Riveted

The stories I have heard before but are well chosen. Only the last was unfamiliar but enjoyed thoroughly. The narration was first rate except for an occasional difficulty in distinguishing which character was speaking. The emotional message and excitement carried the day. It is definitely worth a listen.

N/A

Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

Yes, but instead I listened to it to and from work.

I love Derek Jacobi's voice and reading of anything. I love Sherlock Holmes. So they are the perfect pair.

Brilliant

You know Sherlock Holmes. You've seen adaptations on TV, you know his stories. But, listening/reading the books is just wonderful. By reading, you gain a deeper understanding of Holmes, of Watson, of Victorian England and Derek Jacobi is an amazing narrator. He is perfect for the job. Also, by reading some of the books you get the added bonus of the second part of the story which gives you the background to the current case. So even though you may be familiar with the stories, have a listen and instead of being preoccupied with 'who done it' (cos you probably know already), enjoy the journey and allow Holmes to lead you there in his own unique way.
