Editorial Reviews

Veteran performers Walter Covell and Walter Zimmerman lead this gripping production of classic Sherlock Holmes stories. Get to know the sly Irene Adler in "A Scandal in Bohemia", or follow Holmes into the sordid opium dens in "The Man with the Twisted Lip". Collected here are 12 of some of the most beloved cases from one of the greatest mystery writers of all time. This performance of The Adventures of Sherlock Holmes is a great collection for listeners just getting acquainted with the detective or those looking to renew their love for the famous resident of 221B Baker Street.

A master story teller.

Sherlock Holmes is a character who needs no introduction, and these stories represent some of the best written about him. The reading are decent, though I find the narrator a touch raspy. That said, I usually dislike cast readings as some of the voices can be difficult to hear in a car, though I have not found that a problem with these at all. I would recommend them to anyone interested in discovering Sherlock Holmes.

Exciting Adventures Well Told

This recording offers some of the most famous cases read by a cast of actors that bring the stories alive. I'm a fan but not a fanatic, and I enjoyed hearing the stories I had read decades ago (and seen a few years ago) reminding me of the essence of Sherlock Holmes. Lots of fun.

Shockingly inept

Great stories but what is the 'narrator' Dr Watson doing ? Shouting out his lines like this is farcical. Why do Americans ( Actor) think that to be an Upper Middle Class Englishman you have to shout? This recording ruins a good set of stories.
Very disappointing given that people will spend good money buying this dreadfully narrated rubbish.
Sad really, please take note!!

Dreadful narration

And here's how I learned never to spend a credit without listening to an audio sample. An awful narrator who bellows in the least convincing English accent I've ever encountered.
