The Performance Puts You In The Story
Yes because it's a collection of short stories and I like that best.
A proper old accent and sense of drama.
It is not easy to find a book both my husband and I would enjoy listening to on a long trip and this was perfect. My need for mystery, his love of classics, it all worked out together. Also, since it was short stories, our attention stayed high with each new mystery.
You'll enjoy the historic piece at the beginning of the author talking to the audience.
Interesting & little known short stories
Audiobook contains little-known short stories on Sherlock Holmes & his adventures with trusty sidekick Watson.
Dr. Watson as he is a complementary character to Holmes.
Elementary my dear Watson
Derek Jacobi narrates the stories so well that I could just imagine the scenes as if they were in a movie or tv series. He does however expend effort on the Southern American accents which do not seem to sit well on his British accent. That is, at times he makes some of the American characters sound drunk. Overall, excellent narration which brings to life the main characters and the stories.
