Sherlock's Home The Empty House

This is a group of stories put together to help save the house known as Undershaw. Each story deals with a different aspect of Holmes and Watson. Some are futuristic in nature and totally mesmerizing.
Joff Manning is the narrator who brings the stories to life and his voice will keep you fixated on what happens next.
Fantastic story and audio!!

Great stories supporting a great cause!

I absolutely loved Sherlock’s Home, which published raise money for the preservation of Sherlock Holmes “birthplace” Undershaw (Sir Arthur Conan Doyle's home). The book was a compilation of stories and poems of the Holmes and Watson characters in different places and times (Victorian, present and future). Each story was written by different people - fans from all over the world. The narrator Joff Manning was wonderful. Very enjoyable book!

The Fruits of a Labour of Love

This collection was the result of a campaign to save Undershaw House, one of the houses where Arthur Conan Doyle wrote his famous Sherlock Holmes stories. Having been abandoned, the house and property were slated to be demolished to make way for development, but ha group of people who loved Sherlock (and doesn't everybody?) felt that the home of such a renowned author and the rebirth place of such a beloved consulting detective (the stories written here covered the period after Holmes' return from his near-death adventure with Moriarty at the Falls) should be preserved for future generations to study and enjoy.
They put out a call for new Holmes literature (stories, poems, testimonials) an this volume contains the result.
These stories are wonderful and widely varied, place Holmes and Watson in a wide variety of settings. One returns Holmes to his school days, another sees him solving the mystery of a missing Pentagon officer after 9/11 and still another finds the pair solving a mystery for none other than Conan Doyle himself.. Naturally, that one takes place at Undershaw.
The one thing they all have in common is the respect and love you can feel in each author's treatment off their beloved hero. He is brusque and condescending and absolutely brilliant and I can't help but think that Conan Doyle would have approved wholeheartedly, both of these authors treatment of his beloved sleuth and of the intent of the collection they make up.
This collection is a must read for everyone who loves Sherlock ... and, from recent internet updates regarding the site, it appears it is a project that succeeded in it's ambitions. The property has been designated as historically significant, the manor house is now serving as a school for special needs children and the other buildings are being restored to their original appearances.

Not what I expected

This is a series of short stories and poems that expresses fans' admiration for Sir Arthur Conan Doyle's characters and pays homage to Holmes films, television series, and books.

Excellent Holmes Stories, Brillianty Narrated

"I was given this free review copy audiobook at my request and have voluntarily left this review."

Originally compiled to help preserve 'Undershaw', the house in which Sir Arthur Conan Doyle's penned many Holmes mysteries (including the Hound of the Baskervilles), this is a wonderful collection of brand new Sherlock Holmes stories in various guises - pastiches traditional and modern, essays and even poetry.

The great cause behind it is reason enough to recommend this collection, however, the quality of the writing is very good and it is all brought wonderfully to life by the brilliant narration of Joff Manning.

A great listen for any Holmes fan!

Ok, so the first section of the book wasn’t what I was expecting, with quotes and background info. It’s all very interesting, but it starts to make you wonder if the whole book is like that, but don’t worry, just persevere and you’ll get to the stories you’re no doubt looking for.
It’s also great that the book is being used to raise money to save ACD’s home… a reason I’m itself to get the book!
The tales and short stories are a great mix and I thoroughly enjoyed them and they’re all really well narrated.
This is my honest opinion on a free review copy.
