Why wouldn't they break this series into tracks as opposed to lumping it all into one giant file??? They have done this with the past stories but with this one its just one, 9 hour long track! BOOOOOOO with this absurd exception, its an awesome recording.

Derek Jacobi is to the audio Holmes what Jeremy Brett was to the video - absolute perfection! Whether you listen to one or many, these stories are a wonderful respite from the modern world. Holmes is enigmatic, Watson is lovable, and the plots - though indisputably dated - continue to be intriguing and satisfying. If you know the tales well, vaguely, or not at all, "The Memoires" is one of the best collections to choose and this is the very best narrator. It's elementary!

More great stories from Conan Doyle. This volume contains a series of twelve short stories which are excellently read by Derek Jacobi. It contains the second collection of stories (collated over period 1892-1893), after 'The Adventures of Sherlock Holmes (1891-1892 collection). I stupidly read the third collection ('The Return Of...') before 'The Memoirs..'. At least now I know where he is returning from! Where he goes is covered in the last short story of this book - 'The Adventure of the Final Problem'. Holmes came back due to popular pressure on the author. Highly recommended book.

Would you consider the audio edition of The Memoirs of Sherlock Holmes to be better than the print version?
Derek Jacobi is a legend and his uncanny ability to bring to life each and every character is wonderful. His voice is opulent in tone and his acting prowess ensures that his narration is world class. I have listened over and over again. I love it.
What other book might you compare The Memoirs of Sherlock Holmes to, and why?
All of the Sherlock Holmes stories undertaken by Derek Jacobi
