Publisher's Summary

This extraordinary story unfolds in the dim streets of Victorian London's notorious East End. Poverty, squalor and crime fester and proliferate, blighting the lives of all who are unfortunate enough to dwell there. Yet, from within the gloom, shines a beacon of light: the light of human dignity. And, sometimes, righteousness, decency and justice win out.

In this dramatic play - out of the everlasting human conflict of good versus evil, various giants of their time, immortal beings, come into conflict. They form unlikely alliances, each presenting a differing prism of perception, different viewpoints of what is right and what is wrong; ultimately, what is Good and what is Evil.

NOT SHERLOCKIAN AT ALL.

Narration was pretty good, but the story was pretty bad. Not for me, save your money. I had high hopes of a great Sherlock listen.

Absolutely terrible - not Sherlock Holmes

What disappointed you about Sherlock Holmes: The Making of a Man?

The plot is dull, and the characters or situation is not in keeping with that of Sherlock Holmes. It's laborious and most of the story is not relevent to the simple plot.

What will your next listen be?

Cadfael

Did the narration match the pace of the story?

Slow

What reaction did this book spark in you? Anger, sadness, disappointment?

Anger that I wasted time listening to this. Dissapointnent that audible include this title as named.

Any additional comments?

Don't bother with this book if you enjoy Sherlock Holmes. Pure dissapointnent - total opposite to house of silk.

The Making Of A Man

This was a strange book. For anyone expecting a Conan Doyle style., it was more a cross between Charles Dickens and Bulldog Drummond. Good in parts , I found it slightly long winded and disjointed but I followed it to the end.
