The Adventures of Sherlock Holmes (version 2)

Gelesen von Ruth Golding

(4,672 Sterne; 4347 Bewertungen)

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.

outstanding narration

(5 Sterne)

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.

(5 Sterne)

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.

(5 Sterne)

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.

Classic and Quality

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

Ruth Golding makes these stories come alive with her excellent reading skills. Each character is given a convincing voice of their own for greater dramatic impact. Thank you, Ms Golding.
