Editorial Reviews

Four of the Holmes canon's more memorable tales including favorites "The Scandal in Bohemia" and "The Five Orange Pips," are read with skill and style. Classical music sets the tone and complements the extraordinary work of David Timson. Characterization is key to enjoying these adventures, and Timson brings dozens of characters to life, none more real than Holmes himself. The lively portraits have variety and distinction. They remain memorable, but don’t take listeners out of the story. Timson’s experience with recording the entire canon of Holmes adventures insures consistent excellence.

Publisher's Summary

In this collection are four of the finest cases of Mr. Sherlock Holmes, narrated by his faithful friend and admirer Dr. Watson. What was the mystery of the engineer's thumb? What was behind the disappearance of the race horse? Why did masked royalty walk up to see Holmes in Baker Street? These and other puzzles are solved in this collection by this bloodhound of a genius.

Masked Horses with Wriggling Thumbs

These stories were three of the strangest I have heard so far, and I was supprised in the outcomes of them... and so will you. These are far different than most of Sherlock's other cases, as you will hear. This recording is in excellent quality under level 3.

Maybe not the best collection

Now I like a good mystery and normally quite enjoy a bit of Sherlock Holmes but this collection seemed a bit wishy washy compared to others. The stories themselves are ok but they did seem to rather merge into one, especially when I listened for a second time. Nothing stood out as much as it could.
The delivery was good and the audio quality was ok, if not a little muffled. I found I had to turn up the volume more than normal which is not great if listening in bed.
I'll give this one 3 out of 5 as the quality was lacking
