Showing its age!

I have started to realise what an obnoxious prig Sherlock Holmes is - I think that the age in which this was written has been outgrown, and we have moved on from the attitude of the day. I must say that this is the first time I have really realised what an obnoxious prig the man is, everything is about 'How clever I am' - as I say, time has moved on!

An OK mystery, nicely read - but my last Sherlock Holmes I fear!

Exceptionally interesting

A first class story and the narration was one of the best I've listened to for a while.
I loved the goodies and disliked the villains except for one, who I felt had been hard done by.
Anyone who likes a short (ish) story would like this. Ideal for a car journey.
