Reviews

Another exciting collection


(5 stars)

I started with The Adventures of Sherlock Holmes and listened to this next. I expected a certain level of suspense and surprise at the way Holmes finds resolution for his Adventures, and I wasn't disappointed. I'll definitely buy a hard copy when I get the chance.

well done!


(4 stars)

my only criticism is of personal taste I would have preferred a British voice but the read was very clear nevertheless. if only Benedict Cumberbatch would agree to record some for public domain!

Dear "2Dogs", and others who deem it right that they leave adverse comments on the reading. Cockney accent: very difficult to succeed in this. A Victorian "Cockney" must have sounded very different from a late 20th century one. Also, many a person living in England tries, even these days to disguise their "working class" accent and upbringing for social reasons. If you try to remind yourself of this possibility, you might be able to generously allow that the reader might be impersonating a "toff". The first time I heard my Cockney husband chatting to his old cronies back in the East End, I realised how hard he had worked to change his diction in every way.

Love, love, love this narrator. Excellent use of voice to create the various characters. Ruth is an outstanding narrator and, of course, you can’t go wrong with Conan Doyle.

Best Reader!


(5 stars)

The narrator is extremely upbeat which lends to the action of the stories! Listened to several but this is my best by far...

The End of Holmes?


(5 stars)

If this, I believe to be the proper order written, is the 1st story to mention Moriarty. Is it the end of such a fine gentleman as told? Suppose we will see
