The Return of Sherlock Holmes (Version 3)

Gelesen von David Clarke

(4,796 Sterne; 1602 Bewertungen)

The book was first published in February 1905 by McClure, Phillips & Co. (New York) then on March 7, 1905 by Georges Newnes, Ltd. (London) and was the first Holmes collection since 1893, when Holmes had "died" in The Final Problem. Having published The Hound of the Baskervilles in 1901–1902 (setting it before Holmes' death) Doyle came under intense pressure to revive his famous character. The first story is set in 1894 and has Holmes returning in London and explaining the period from 1891–94, a period called "The Great Hiatus" by Sherlockian enthusiasts. Also of note is Watson's statement in the last story of the cycle that Holmes has retired, and forbids him to publish any more stories. - Summary by Wikipedia (11 hr 51 min)

As ,Iststated above, looked it very much however the continuing demand for a review preview prevents me from going back and listening to episodes I missed

Wonderful

Potentially my favourite compilation of cases :) I quite like that cases vary from the most serious of crimes to some tender cases. The narrator was truly incredible; his style is perfectly suitable for the story and his voice changes are remarkably consistent!

David Clarke is an absolute joy to listen to. By far, the best reader on Librivox. He doesnt read monotone, he brings every character to life and it's an absolute pleasure to listen to him. Thankyou ,David ,for bringing these stories to life 😊

I loved the Adventure of Sherlock Holmes and was delighted to find The Return of Sherlock Holmes. I love that these mysteries leave me guessing all the way through. Certain clues are only revealed when Holmes has solved the mystery. Love it!

Amazing

I am a huge fan of Sherlock Holmes. David Clarke is most definitely the person to read these books. He makes the characters seem to come alive in my head. This book is probably my favorite one of all.

David Clarke's reading always bring Holmes to life.

I admit that I felt the stories in the Return of Sherlock Holmes were not as enthralling as the previous works. However, Clarke's reading is always a joy.

Intriguing stories and excellent reading. Loved the variety of British accents and male/female voices used by the reader. Very well spoken and well recorded, no background noises to distract from the telling.
