It's obvious after he's explained it.

More great stories from Conan Doyle. This volume contains a series of twelve short stories which are excellently read by Derek Jacobi. It contains the second collection of stories (collated over period 1892-1893), after 'The Adventures of Sherlock Holmes (1891-1892 collection). I stupidly read the third collection ('The Return Of...') before 'The Memoirs..'. At least now I know where he is returning from! Where he goes is covered in the last short story of this book - 'The Adventure of the Final Problem'. Holmes came back due to popular pressure on the author. Highly recommended book.

A fine memoir!

If you could sum up The Memoirs of Sherlock Holmes in three words, what would they be?

Holmes. Watson. Moriarty.

What about Derek Jacobi’s performance did you like?

Every word.

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

No, because it's good to savour the stories.

Any additional comments?

This was intended to be the final Sherlock Holmes collection, though this was not to be. There are some excellent stories in this collection: Silver Blaze, the Musgrave Ritual and the Greek Interpreter to name a few. Yet it is the final story, the Final Problem, that everyone knows. It introduces Professor Moriarty, providing Holmes with an adversary who is his equal, and possibly his end...

Amazing except...

Any additional comments?

Why wouldn't they break this series into tracks as opposed to lumping it all into one giant file??? They have done this with the past stories but with this one its just one, 9 hour long track! BOOOOOOO with this absurd exception, its an awesome recording.

A Must for the Holmes Fan

Derek Jacobi is to the audio Holmes what Jeremy Brett was to the video - absolute perfection! Whether you listen to one or many, these stories are a wonderful respite from the modern world. Holmes is enigmatic, Watson is lovable, and the plots - though indisputably dated - continue to be intriguing and satisfying. If you know the tales well, vaguely, or not at all, "The Memoires" is one of the best collections to choose and this is the very best narrator. It's elementary!
