Publisher's Summary

Sherlock Holmes is bored between cases at 221B Baker Street. So when King Oskar II of Sweden - who has heard of the discovery of the Kensington Runestone by a farmer in Minnesota - asks to engage his services, Holmes jumps at the chance to decipher the runes and determine whether the find is real or a hoax. With Dr. John H. Watson by his side, faithfully recording every detail, Holmes makes his way to Minnesota for a third time. But, in the first of many strange and unfortunate coincidences, the farmer who found the mysterious stone is murdered, and the stone itself is stolen on the day the famous detective arrives.
With the help of one Shadwell Rafferty, now a friend and partner, Holmes must solve this baffling case to find both the stone and the murderer.

boring storyline

I was voluntarily provided this free review copy audiobook by the author, narrator, or publisher. Honestly, i have never read any Sherlock Holmes books before and i thought I would give it a try. I quickly realized that this type of book just isn't for me. I didn't make it through the whole thing. I listened for about an hour and couldn't seem to focus on the story. It was quite boring to me. I did very much enjoy the narrator. The voices and accents he used were great. The story just started out way to slow for me and I couldn't get past that.

Masterfully Told Sherlock Holmes Mystery

Would you listen to Sherlock Holmes and the Rune Stone Mystery again? Why?

Absolutely. Fun to try to grasp on to more clues I may have missed the first time. I'm always doing something while listening to a story, so it's a pleasure to listen to books again and again.


What other book might you compare Sherlock Holmes and the Rune Stone Mystery to and why?

I was more reminded of the genre than the actual story line. So, here goes....Although, I am a Barbara Rosenblat fan, I was thinking Mr. Hendrickson would be phenomenal with one of Amelia Peabody's stories.


Which character – as performed by Steve Hendrickson – was your favorite?

Love Watson. But truly, Mr. Hendrickson did a marvelous job on the full cast. I enjoyed all of the accents and personalities. Flawless movement from one character to the next. Bravo!


Any additional comments?

Wonderfully rich characters and lots of details. I love a story that can transport me to another place and time. Great comedic timing as well. It's always fun to hear the banter between Holmes and Watson. I received a free copy via audiobook boom in exchange for an unbiased review. Thank you.
