Reviews

Excellent!

(5 stars)

I thoroughly enjoyed listening to these classic mysteries, read so brilliantly by Mr. Leach. Of all the readers of Sherlock Holmes stories that I have heard, Mr. Leach is by far my favorite. he has an excellent pace, distinguishes different voices clearly, and does an overall fantastic job.

(2.5 stars)

Great book, if only Ruth Golding could read it, her set of skills made the Adventures of Sherlock Holmes the best audio book I have ever heard. This man is a decent linguist, however he lacks the quality and gentleness that Ruth introduced. He sounds as if he reading with a smile on his face even when Holmes is upset and his brows are deeply grave. A valiant effort on the readers part

Good reading with different voices and accents

(5 stars)

The first adventure isn't as good as the others, but I enjoyed this reader immensely. Some of his accents were perfect, I enjoyed the German one a lot! I'll look forward to listen to him again.

NO ONE LIKE SHERLOCK

(5 stars)

The now familiar stories of the exploits of S H. The reading was extremely well done, but, despite what other reviewers have opined, the reading of Mark Smith (The Adventures of S H) is more enjoyable for one reason only--his voice is much more "Watson like." Both are a pleasure to hear.

nice reading, same old sherlock tales

(4 stars)

the reader did a nice job, easy to follow and nice tone. the stories are all classic sherlock tales and satisfying. though some are dull and some are interesting. the kill off of sherlock was done fast and without much fuss or description. a bit to short and cut off for me. really seams like the writer had drawn tired of the story types and character and was just trying to cut off public plea for more tales. though we know that didnt work ;-)

a good book and a wonderful reader

(5 stars)

Sherlock Holmes has always been my favourite detective. listening to this book was a wonderful experience. The reader is great at changing intimations and accents to suit the characters of this book well.

Great story, good reader

(4 stars)

Very good story as always for Sherlock Holmes. The reader did a very good job as well. He was very clear and easy to listen. Wish he would have done more with different voices though. It was sometimes hard to tell who was talking in the story. Overall very good

What Inspires Us

Hi, this what inspired us to write a steampunk spin-off to Sherlock Holmes. Here's a portrait I drew of his daughter Sheryl Holmers, our main character: https://www.facebook.com/photo.php?fbid=2170022844627 - Let me know if you like it. Be watchful, you sleuths of old and new Sherlockorama!
