Publisher's Summary

Uno studio in rosso (A Study in Scarlet) è il primo romanzo di Sir Arthur Conan Doyle della serie delle avventure del celebre detective Sherlock Holmes. Fu pubblicato nel 1887, e vi fu presentata la coppia più celebre della letteratura investigativa: Holmes e Watson. Contemporaneamente vi viene presentato il metodo analitico e deduttivo di Holmes, citando anche lo scrittore, Edgar Allan Poe, che per primo lo illustrò, a cui peraltro Holmes non risparmia critiche.Nel racconto del misterioso omicidio, in cui viene invocata la consulenza di Holmes da parte dei due ispettori Lestrade e Gregson, si inserisce una "storia nella storia", ambientata nello Utah e nella setta dei Mormoni, che fa da presupposto al movente del caso. In questa storia l’autore non cela la sua riprovazione per tali società segrete, cosa che inseguito ripeterà, nel romanzo breve "La valle della paura", anche questo con doppia ambientazione inglese e americana. Cornice musicale di Kevin Mac Leod

Please note: This audiobook is in Italian.

Can't stand this voice

Would you try another book from Arthur Conan Doyle and/or Silvia Cecchini?

Doyle's books are great but Silvia Cecchini's voice is boring. I just can't stand it. I'm buying the book read by someone else.

What did you like best about this story?

I didn't finish it yet but no need to say anything on Sherlock Holmes. They're great.

Would you be willing to try another one of Silvia Cecchini’s performances?

Absolutely NOT.

Dr John Watson has become a woman!

Apart from having a female first-person narrator, which takes a little getting used to, Doyle's classic is well rendered into Italian, clearly read, and the music is not intrusive - unlike one or two books I've bought in French and Italian. (I wouldn't want it in any language!)
However, Silvia Cecchini seems to be the default narrator for audiolibri, especially classics, and since they're usually modestly priced, and pleasantly read, I'm not too bothered. And I can improve my aural comprehension of Italian, and re-visit old favourites I haven't time to reread, AND do the housework, keep fit, or drift off to sleep all at once. Multi-tasking rules!
