Reviews


(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

Another exciting collection


(5 stars)

I started with The Adventures of Sherlock Holmes and listened to this next. I expected a certain level of suspense and surprise at the way Holmes finds resolution for his Adventures, and I wasn't disappointed. I'll definitely buy a hard copy when I get the chance.

beautifully read by Eric Leach


(5 stars)

I can only imagine the tumult and uproar raised by his devoted readers when Sir Arthur published His Last Bow. Even knowing it was not the end made my heart break to listen to the story..

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.

(4 stars)

my only criticism is of personal taste I would have preferred a British voice but the read was very clear nevertheless. if only Benedict Cumberbatch would agree to record some for public domain!

good enough


(4 stars)

the narrator's voice lacks a bit now and then in relaying character's personality but he speaks clearly and on the whole, well. as for the book, well of course its great!


(4.5 stars)

Love, love, love this narrator. Excellent use of voice to create the various characters. Ruth is an outstanding narrator and, of course, you can’t go wrong with Conan Doyle.
