Consistent Reader of Classic Sherlock
Single reader is more consistent than many different readers, but sometimes too consistent: same voice and intonation for all characters; same speech patterns and rhythms. Story shows Sherlock's
Excellent book and good read. The pace is very good to focus om the book while doing other stuff! Wouldn't hesitate to reccomend
Not quite as good as The Adventures of Sherlock Holmes, but a memorable story nonetheless. I am glad to see that the author has reduced the amount of backstory compared to A Study In Scarlet. There is a slight audio hiss in the background, particularly in the first chapter recording, but this seems to be less noticeable in the other chapters. It is well-read.
I love this book and I love librivox!!! thanks to all the volunteers that make it possible. for me to enjoy this books!
a new one for me
never before had the chance to find this one where Watson meets Mary! so great and a great narrator
Well I think Sherlock Holmes is just above me or something. I listened to the Hound of the Baskerville's (not through Librivox) and I felt in that story that Watson did all the work. This story I just got lost in too much. I wanted to listen to a few of these stories because I understand the TV show House is based loosely on Sherlock Holmes. I do see the similarities, especially in this story. The narrator was very good and she did a terrific job. I would like to hear more from her.
A favorite book, nicely read.
I have been a Holmes fan for years, so a chance to listen to them again was a joy. The reader has a very clear, listenable voice.
The reading was well done, was easy to understand, and made a great companion for a week's worth of commuting.
