The Adventures of Sherlock Holmes (version 2)


Read by Ruth Golding

(4.7 stars; 4422 reviews)

A collection of twelve short stories featuring Conan Doyle's legendary detective, originally published as single stories in Strand Magazine and subsequently collected into a single volume.

There is not always a crime committed nor a culprit to find, and when there is, Holmes does not invariably get his man. However, his extraordinary powers of deduction generally solve the mystery, often to the discomfiture of the official police force. Holmes is a man of many facets, and I do not share the common perception of Holmes as cold and humourless: his sense of fun can be sparkling, and there are moments of rare pathos. (Summary by Ruth Golding) (13 hr 29 min)

Reviews


(5 stars)

The stories were great, of course. Ruth Golding has the perfect voice and one of the best conceptualizations of the writer’s vision of each character in each story I have ever heard. As she read and gave each their proper voice I could envision them as though watching a well cast play, or film. Bravo Ms. Golding.

outstanding narration

My first LibriVox listen and I thoroughly enjoyed it. Ruth Golding's narration was phenomenal. Will definitely check out others she has read. Thanks to all involved for this entertaining and engaging audiobook.

Classic and Quality

About a dozen short Sherlock cases each broken into two parts. These are wonderfully read and typical of Sherlock genius.

Great reader

(5 stars)

Ruth Golding is an excellent storyteller, and Sir Arthur Conan Doyle's works are always a delight to peruse. I find myself coming back every once in a while, to enjoy the camaraderie of Holmes and Watson. An excellent collection of iconic tales.

Impeccable reading.
