The Adventures of Sherlock Holmes (version 2)

Gelesen von Ruth Golding

(4,653 Sterne; 3121 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.

What an exciting book... and what a great reader. I shall search for the same reader again... all accents were convincing, the reading is clear and pleasant to listen to. Thank you, Ruth

Fantastic Reading!!

(5 Sterne)

Great stories and reader

(5 Sterne)

Ruth really brings these stories to life. I appreciate her reading so much. Thank you for the huge effort involved. Wonderful stories too, of course.

Excellent narration

(5 Sterne)

My introduction to audio books and I was not disappointed. Ruth Holding handles her narrative clearly and depicts the different characters very well. I didn't mind that it. was a little slow as it allowed me time to grasp the story. Love these mysteries and look forward to hearing some more.

Stunning!

(5 Sterne)

Incredibly well recited. Excellent pace, and the subtle shift in tone/pitch/voice for each character is so well executed. Of course, the character's infamous deductive reasoning is so much fun to listen to, despite some of the logical leaps.

Great reader, not bad stories. 😉

(5 Sterne)

Best reader on LibriVox! Thank you, Ruth. If only Ruth would read all their stories, I would have many better days at work!
