Well read

(5 stars)

The stories were well read. The stories themselves are at least decent. Worth reading. Not fantastic detective writing per se (e.g., it's very hard to play along as oftentimes key information isn't really given until the reveal), but they're entertaining. I'd recommend.

Another amazing reading by Mr David Incredible Voice Clarke

(5 stars)

A great set of short stories by an amazing writer, but truly brought to life by the amazing reading and voice skills of David Clarke. It's truly a pleasure to listen to the reading, it transports me right back in time into the London where and whence these stories were set. Truly mesmerizing. I do hope Mr Clarke will find the time and energy to lend his fabulous voice to further readings of the same caliber. Thank-you very much!

love it! The many voices of David Clarke are terrific!

I am absolutely amazed at how well David Clarke portrays each individual character...I have listened to each of the SH several times...I have yet to listen to the case book of Sherlock Holmes in hopes that David Clarke will one day record it...Please David Clarke.... Do the case book!

Quite Good.

I am enjoying rediscovering the entire catalog of Sherlock Holmes stories and novels by Sir Arthur Conan Doyle. They don't disappoint. They are as relevant in 2018,when I am listening to them, as they were upon their initial release. The added bonus is the quality of the narration by David Clarke. His accent and voice really enhance the aural experience. I'm only just getting into this journey through Mr. Doyle's books and am pleased to see that many, if not all of his Sherlock Holmes stories/ novels have Mr. Clarke as a narrator. I think that I I shall seek those editions of the books out. Thank you to Librivox, David Clarke and, of course,the late Sir Arthur Conan Doyle for a wonderful experience. I look forward to more in the future.

Great Reading of a Classic Collection

(5 stars)

This was a fantastic reading with wonderful voice characterizations. As far as the stories go there is little to say. These are the original short stories penned by the master himself. Each is a well polished gem of a short story. Highly recommended.

Excellent work, best work I have come across that compliment so well with the novel, very well emerged into the characters which easily brings you into the world of Sherlock Holmes. Thank you for the great work.

The stories were fun and the reader was expressive. I very much enjoyed listening to this book. There were a couple of words that were old enough (or English enough?) that I didn't understand them. That in no way detached from the stories.

So Enjoyable!!

(5 stars)

This was simply riveting, exciting, and fun. The humor of Homes, when read by this reader, is infectious and witty with brilliant taste for sarcasm. I love this book!! Per my name, I listen to books primarily while cleaning. The Sherlock Holmes books have been marvelous, and I look forward to chore time if just to listen to the next bit of story! 5 stars; I hope you'll give it a listen! 😊
