Reviews

Excellent recording!


(5 stars)

David Clark encapsulates the charm and individuality of Sir Arthur Conan Doyle’s characters with extraordinary ease. With Clark’s narration, I have heard a characterization of Watson which highlights his good sense, loyalty, and creativity. Furthermore, with the Clark’s unique narration, the character of Sherlock Holmes is ever the gentleman and ever the formidable force against the criminal classes of London. He is less dysfunctional than most characterizations, and the tone which Clark gives him makes him into more of a hero than an eccentric drug addict who solves crimes for a living. This can be attributed to the fact that it is Conan Doyle’s writing, but I believe Clark’s characterization truly encapsulates all that Conan Doyle wanted from the character. I give all of David Clark’s recordings five stars as I enjoy them more than the films and I’m drawn into the stories. Actually, I find that I’m just as surprised as Watson in the end. Thank you, Mr. Clark for providing a wonderful reading experience!

I was a fan of reading books untill i found out about audio books which it is more fun to listen... I used to read and listen and it takes me into understanding every detail of it. I hope, more stars who portray the character in movies would read books in Librivox so that imagination would hit rock reality...

Well Done Mr. Clarke


(5 stars)

David Clarke does an excellent read on these wonderful Victorian mysteries. When indicating a character change the reader changes his inflection slightly and effectively and when the character is female the shift is not to an offensive high pitch but modulated to a softer tone, skillfully done. A thoroughly enjoyable listen.

excellent reading by David Clarke highly recommend this to all

I cannot express how much the narration has added to these stories, particularly the final chapter... Great job and as usual when it comes to Sir Arthur Conan Doyle, amazing plots with interesting developments. I’m happy I finally got around to listening to these stories, totally worth the time.

Tremendous Narration!

I've read, watched, re-read, and continue to watch the numerous iterations of Sherlock Holmes stories since I was 9, and my brother was 12. Libri Vox volunteer, David Clarke's characterization of Holmes, as well as every other person, is so closely aligned to what's written, one could believe Mr. Clarke knew the Author! These "cases" are the quintessential Sherlock Holmes tales, expertly compiled by Sir Arthur Conan Doyle, and superbly voiced by the incomparable, David Clarke.
