What the Critics Say

"Since he received an Audie nomination for Volume I and an Audie Award for Volume II, it's not surprising that Charlton Griffin gives another extraordinary performance in this volume of Sherlock Holmes works. In addition to impeccable interpretations of familiar characters - Holmes, Watson, Mycroft, and Lestrade - Griffin creates remarkably believable women. Griffin's narration is fresh, flawless, and completely winning." (AudioFile magazine)

Disappointed.

What could have made this a 4 or 5-star listening experience for you?

Having the right person reading it.


How did the narrator detract from the book?

I cannot fathom why an American actor would be chosen to read such a quintessentially British book. Don't get me wrong, he has a lovely voice and makes a valiant effort at an English accent, but that doesn't help if you still use American pronunciation, e.g. on words like 'lever', 'depot', 'Cecil' and he's obviously not familiar with British place names as many of those have been pronounced incorrectly too. Worst of all something weird happens with the 'O' vowels in places so 'Holmes' has mutated into 'Hormes' and 'dog' into 'dawg'. Really, really disappointed because I love Sherlock stories.

The best credit I've ever spent!

Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

A great addition to anyone's audio collection. Compulsory listening for anyone with even a passing interest in crime fiction.


Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

At over 70 hours I think it would take too much coffee to get through it all in one go!


Any additional comments?

This has got to be the best value for money credit I've ever used on Audible! Grab this book before they change their minds and make it a multi-credit purchase.
