Dramatised Holmes - gripping, yet great fun to fol
Where does The Casebook of Sherlock Holmes rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?
I listen to this one over, and, over again. I would place this in my top 5 books.
What other book might you compare The Casebook of Sherlock Holmes to, and why?
39 Steps with Robert Powell - a superb narrator, I have a number of his narration so. This is a stunning story with mystery, great descriptions of the scenery, and Powell makes it sound like a group of actors are playing the parts.
Which scene did you most enjoy?
The scenes at the beginning o f each Sherlock Holmes are best, they lead you into the story in many different ways, always surprising yet familiar.
Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?
Holme's vulnerability and frustration. There is usually at least one moment in each story.
Any additional comments?
I have been listening to talking books since the early 80's, usually on cassette. Audible transformed this listing into something that was easy to access, usually of a very high quality, and with an excellent catalogue. Thank you Audible.

What made the experience of listening to The Casebook of Sherlock Holmes the most enjoyable?
It is a full BBC dramatisation
Any additional comments?
Unfortunately, the voices of Holmes and Watson were too close, audibly, for easy distinction. This is the only flaw in what is otherwise a superb broadcast.
