Sir Arthur Conan Doyle (1859–1930) was born of Irish parentage in Scotland. He studied medicine at the University of Edinburgh, but initial poverty as a young practitioner led him into authorship. His first book introduced that prototype of the modern detective in fiction, Sherlock Holmes. He also wrote historical romances and two essays in pseudoscientific fantasy, The Lost World (1912) and The Poison Belt (1913).

Good story, ill chosen narrator
The story is well known, for it is an excellent one. However this recording, whilst listen-able, is not perfect.
The Narrator's unnatural Lucy Ferrier impersonation distracted me from the story.
Also, in the background there are mumbles of another voice, as though another recording was occuring next door.

Great book! Suspenseful. Reading was helpful--different voices for different characters. Conan Doyle really keeps the reader engaged--especially with the change in scene in Part II.
