Where does The Adventures of Sherlock Holmes rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?
Highly, although it is a radio broadcast and not an audiobook.
Who was your favorite character and why?
Richardson and Gielgud are the BEST cast for Sherlock Holmes stories.
Which character – as performed by Sir John Gielgud and Orson Welles – was your favorite?
They are both excellent
The voice acting in these incredible stories brings me right there to 221B. I can't recommend these enough.
John Gielgud projects the era perfectly & draws you into the world
of gas lights, horse drawn carriages & gentlemanly manners as he sleuths his way to the murderer.
Too many good things happen in this set to pin to one scene. They are all excellent lovely full cast dramas to enjoy over & over. I am impressed with the clear sound, absolutely no crackles etc.
I have "All" the different Sherlocks in my collection gives a nice variation to the stories as each actor brings a different style to the performance. I wish there were more Sherlocks to buy, keeps me entertained for hours & for days during these cold winters. Perfect for curling up & relax.
Any additional comments?
The only nitpicking I will do is to say that the violin that was played after each mystery annoyed me slightly, listening to it after every single mystery was a bit much, especially as there is no variation. It is monotonous and them same every time, but don't let it put you off.
The sound quality was slightly dubious, but well narrated with some good audio drama noises. A very good effort for it's time.
The king of Sherlock Holmes and what makes it so ravenously satisfying for me is listening to it from the BBC drama versions available on audible. However, this still had all the makings of a fantastic listening experience and I enjoyed it very much.
