The Adventures of Sherlock Holmes (version 2)

Gelesen von Ruth Golding

(4,6 Sterne; 1814 Bewertungen)


A collection of twelve short stories featuring Conan Doyle's legendary detective, originally published as single stories in Strand Magazine and subsequently collected into a single volume.

There is not always a crime committed nor a culprit to find, and when there is, Holmes does not invariably get his man. However, his extraordinary powers of deduction generally solve the mystery, often to the discomfiture of the official police force. Holmes is a man of many facets, and I do not share the common perception of Holmes as cold and humourless: his sense of fun can be sparkling, and there are moments of rare pathos. (Summary by Ruth Golding)

Expertly Done!

(5 Sterne)

I love Sherlock Holmes and Ruth does a wonderful job of bringing the stories to life with her use of voices. I wish more would do this because the other readers all fall flat for me. A must listen if you are a fan.

I love the way Ruth reads these stories!! She brings each character to life with her different voice tones; which make the characters loveable and believable; especially Sherlock Holmes and Dr Watson. The voice she used for each sounds like what I think these men would have sounded like. A-one job in reading out loud. Ruth should get an award for such a superb reading.

Great Reader!

We all know Sherlock Holmes stories are amazing but these five stars are for Ms. Golding.. Thank you for taking the time to read these stories. She has a great voice for audiobooks and the quality of sound is high. Thanks Ruth!!!

Great

Loved it. the voice for Watson was a bit odd bit it was nice that all the different people in a story has their own voice so it was easy to tell them apart

I will continue to listen to the tales of sherlock and Watson as long as this life permits me to do so, I think real police detectives could learn a thing or two from sir aurthur Conan doyles tales because even I, an artist with a very short attention span, now see the world under a brighter light, sincerely..

Very professional!

I had to fight the impulse to search Google for BBC mini-series in which Ruth Golding has appeared! Certainly she has the voice of a trained RSC actress. Thanks Ruth.

Wonderful Narration!

(5 Sterne)

If your first exposure to Sherlock was the TV series on BBC, you may find the stories in this book to be a little on the simple side. What really makes this a stand out audiobook, is the completely excellent narration! This is in my top ten audiobooks, paid or otherwise. Every character has a unique voice - the reader is so talented!

Fabulous if a little slowly read

(4 Sterne)

I had to use the speed up option to make the reading a little less slow and more engaging, but otherwise it's read brilliantly and the voices the reader uses to identify the characters are great and not frustrating like many readers can be.
