Audio Book Summary

Sherlock Holmes is a fictional detective of the late 19th and early 20th centuries, who first appeared in publication in 1887. He was devised by Scottish author and doctor Sir Arthur Conan Doyle. A brilliant London-based detective, Holmes is famous for his prowess at using logic and astute observation to solve cases. He is perhaps the most famous fictional detective, and indeed one of the best known and most universally recognizable literary characters. Join Dr. Watson and Sherlock Holmes, in Holmes' fourth book.

    The last narrator is shockingly awful. He takes a classic story and butcher's it.

    The book was good, but the narration was just OK. You get a wide array of readers, and some are better than others. I know many people complain when the reader does not have an English accent, but the last reader showed why an English accent shouldn't be used if you don't normally speak with one. His accent was terrible, and his reading was so deliberate and choppy that he probably added 10 minutes onto the story. Just awful. It sounded like he was sounding out every word.

    I listen to these audio books while traveling and found most of the stories held my interest and the readers did a good job except for one reader who had an unusual sharp tone and jerky method which was hard to listen to.(11).. But overall good travel entertainment which helps the distances seem shorter

    Sherlock Holmes is fantastic. This collection is engaging and fun, and I wholeheartedly recommend it to anyone above the age of 10 or so. I enjoyed it twice as much as I expected to. Unfortunately the narration is decidedly sub-par. I appreciate that LibriVox makes titles like this available, and I’m not sure I’d do better if I were reading, but this audiobook is plagued by poor sound and bad readers. Several of the chapters are really difficult to understand. You get what you pay for on this one.

    Dr Watson is male and needs pace and tone. The stories are not to be raced though. The final solution and the naval treaty were impossible to listen to.

    Great. I enjoyed each story except the last chapter. The reader spoke in a jerky one or two words at a time manner. I could only understand about every third word. I could not finish it.

    Great stories but terrible narration. Found i could not listen to female narrators as they tell the story from Dr Watson's memoirs. One had a very thick accent. Some of the male american narrators also were not much good either.

    Enthralling collection of stories each read by different narrators, the quality of these narrators varied from excellent to subpar. The elegant style of writing really adds to the descriptive stories all told from the perception of Watson. Definitely would recommend as each story is intriguing and you will be disappointed when u reach the end of these memoirs.
