The Adventures of Sherlock Holmes (version 2)

Gelesen von Ruth Golding

(4,663 Sterne; 3366 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.

I love this lady narrator! would listen to anything read by her

Excellent book and narration

(5 Sterne)

Ruth Golding's superb voice and character impersonation bring delightful life to this classic (yet by no means archaic) detective fiction. Sherlock Holmes, no matter how many times revived in new television programs, remains best told in the original way in which he was written. The stories show not much in human nature has changed, and are just as riveting as any modern tale.

Highly recommended

(5 Sterne)

What a great book and what a great reader! I had read some SH adventures in the past, but I never had the time to read them all. I spent some wonderful winter mornings walking ti work and listening to these recordings.

The difference in the phrases used, the tone of voice, and the attitudes towards the classes (rich vs poor), and especially towards women make for an interesting read. Then throw in a darn good story makes a very good read.

The Best

(5 Sterne)

amazing! I love it! I could read it over and over. the narration is so good. I was on the edge of my seat the whole time. I felt like I was there with sherlock holmes himself!

highly engaging read

(5 Sterne)

Ruth Golding is an expressive reader. I was completely engaged in each of the stories and the characters were given life and dimension. I was first perturbed that Dr Watson's narrative was voiced by a woman but my mind quickly adjusted and the stories conveyed well. Golding's English accent and capability in regional accents was a great benefit. highly recommended!

this was my introduction to audiobooks. i found it very lovely, the slow pace makes it easy to follow while doing something else. the only thing i didn't like was how the narrator did the woman's voices, as it was very high pitched, but aside from that i really enjoyed the variety of accents and intonations she injected in the story.

Love this narrator’s pleasant voice and she does an excellent job using voice color to create the different characters. Some narrators are rather harsh and “ sing songy”. This is Conan Doyle read with true acting ability
