The Adventures of Sherlock Holmes (version 3)


Read by Mark F. Smith

(4.7 stars; 483 reviews)

Dr. Watson chronicles here some of the more interesting detective cases that he and his good friend, Mr. Sherlock Holmes, have encountered during their association. We see the cases unfold as he does, scratch our heads as does he while the evidence is collected, and then marvel at the impeccable observations, remarkable insight, and doggedness which Holmes displays as he teases apart the tangled clues.

Packaged as twelve distinct cases, by the end of this book your own senses of observation and deductive reasoning should be improved. It's easy to see why this book became a model for detective yarns! (Summary by Mark F. Smith)

Reviews

WELL WRITTEN WELL READ

(5 stars)

This narrator has the perfect tone and pace for a Sherlock Holmes book. Most of these cases have been dtamatized on A&E or PBS, and it is interesting to see how easily and completely ACD's style converts to the visual art. Well done.

One of the best recordings!

(5 stars)

The writer's voice is so clear and intriguing! I listen to this every night before I fall asleep. This recording always seems to find a way to calm me down and relax me. Definitely one of the best on here.

Excellent stories, excellent reader.

(5 stars)

Classic tales well read; they were so good I had long marathon listening sessions and didn't want to turn them off to go to sleep. On a modern note -- how nice to hear the original tales after watching the new British "Sherlock" series; it was fun to see how they picked out aspects from various tales to create the new versions.

Terrific Reading

(5 stars)

The reading was as good as some professionals I have heard! Of course the stories are great, but in my opinion this is the best of the Sherlock Holmes readings, and among the best readings I have ever heard on Librivox. His voice gives life to the characters and stories and is at the same time soothing. Highly recommend!

Great Reading Voice

(5 stars)

I listened through this whole book quite quickly. The voice was engaging and kept me in the story. The book of course was very good as well. I rate this five starts and I will seek out any other books read by this man.

Very good reading

(5 stars)

I enjoyed this collection of short stories a lot! The reading is very well done and it is always pleasant to the ears, even when the reader changes voices to accommodate different characters. I was very much amused by this reading!

Great stories

(4 stars)

Of course the stories are great - they're written by Sir Arthur Conan Doyle and they're about the legendary Sherlock Holmes! The reader was mostly wonderful. His voice is usually very clear and understandable. There were only a couple of instances where I got lost with all the changes of the voice. But, on the whole, it was very enjoyable. This version is read in American English.

as a fan of all the sherlock mysteries, I enjoyed listening to the stories . the reader was well spoken. but I personally think they could have been more interesting if someone with an British accent would have given them more life.
