  • "10 Stars!"

    Overall

    I would like to give this book 10 stars.
    'The Help' is the best book I have listened to (or read) in years. It is one of those books that will stay with me, one of a handful that I remember with pleasure and will listen to again.
    The characters are so real, I feel like I've met and come to know them. The three heroines of the book are wonderful and multi-facited. The villain is a horror.
    It is a book that made me think; 'What would I have done?' 'Would I have been that brave?' It is a book which looks back to a time and place in history so alien that I was both appalled by the behaviour of some of the characters and warmed and inspired by others. Amazingly, given the issues at the core of this story, it is also a witty and humourous book.
    This audiobook is so beautifully acted out by the readers, I don't think I would have heard the voices as well in my head if I had read the book, the audiobook brings the accents alive and makes it wonderful to listen to.

    Sir Arthur Conan Doyle's Sherlock Holmes tales are rightly ranked among the seminal works of mystery and detective fiction. Included in this collection are all four full-length Holmes novels and more than forty short masterpieces - from the inaugural adventure A Study in Scarlet to timeless favorites like "The Speckled Band" and more. At the center of each stands the iconic figure of Holmes - brilliant, eccentric, and capable of amazing feats of deductive reasoning.
