Reviews

a wonderful conclusion to a wonderful series!


(4.5 stars)

I absolutely loved this book! I've heard a lot of people say that Doyle's later stories are weaker than his other,earlier, ones, but on the contrary, I think this one is even better than the 'memoirs'! The Dying Detective had me all teared up but.... never mind, I won't spoil it. Amazing! I felt like all of the readers you just had to listen to them for about 5 minutes and then you could completely understand them. Thank you sooooo much all of the people who took time to record this book!

Excellent !! big fan of the way you guys are doing it

good ol sherlock


(5 stars)

same story lines and i usually have them figured out. i think one of the stories is a repeat from one of his other novels because the opening was so familiar, but i didnt want to go through and check it out. the last bow was good, at first i had the wrong person pegged as Holmes. but a good short short story. the best one i think was the devils foot. i enjoy the writers style so much.

Great readers, but 1 needs help


(4 stars)

I love sherlock ! and the readers did an amazing job. the lady reading the "dying detective" needs help though. I understand reading is a great exercise when learning a language, but it should not be on Librivox, sorry.
