Stephen Fry: Audible Sessions: FREE Exclusive Interview

Regular Price:£0.00

Publisher's Summary

In this interview Stephen Fry talks to us about the process of narrating the complete adventures of London's greatest detective, Sherlock Holmes. He touches on the genius of Arthur Conan Doyle and reveals how joining the 'Sherlock Holmes Society' played a part in his expulsion from school and subsequent imprisonment.

Coming round full circle, Stephen admits to having jumped at the chance of voicing Sherlock Holmes: The Definitive Collection. Keen to delve once more into the 'majestic swing, rhythm and pulse of the text,' Stephen describes his experience in the recording studio, all the while expressing a general fondness for the magic of stories told aloud.

As a renowned and beloved actor, writer, and presenter, Stephen Fry has imprinted himself into British culture. He has voiced all seven of the Harry Potter audiobooks, as well as titles such as The Picture of Dorian Gray, Mythos and Winnie the Pooh. His flawless rendition of literary classics is always second to none and in Sherlock Holmes: The Definitive Collection, Stephen immediately draws you in and leaves you wanting more.

Including personal introductions written by and narrated by Stephen, The Definitive Collection is a truly unique literary gem. Audible Members' Choice Winner of the Year, the audiobook has been described by listeners as 'superb' and 'over 70 hours of pure brilliance.'

Listen to Sherlock Holmes: The Definitive Collection here.

    "Not long enough."

    Steven Fry's voice reading Harry Potter has been a night- time companion for years. His voice has been a "safety blanket" for me and now a reassuring "friend". Thanks

    "A good little chat with Stephen Fry"

    I loved it but it took me a few minutes to realize that he was talking about sherlock homes and Harry Potter. This would make so much more sense if you had listened to his reading of either series of books. But overall it was good.

    "Nice interviews provided by Audible."

    It's a very good idea to have these small interviews. It gives the listener an extra point of view of the person behind the voice of the audiobooks. After all, this is a pretty important person in the process of appreciating and understanding the story.

    "Interesting background on Stephen"

    Stephen has a distinctive sound and style. I was first introduced to Stephen thru the TV Series Bones. I began to enjoy his speech and style. He has a charming wit and underlying humor without being an overt comic... at least in my exposure to him. This interview gives some insights on his readings; specifically Sherlock Holmes and Harry Potter. I chuckled when I heard the story about 'pocketed it'; quite amusing. While I have enjoyed listening to Stephen in some of his various endeavors; I now find myself wanting more. Considering I am very partial to female voices; this is unusual for me.... and no... Stephen does not have a female sounding voice to me... grin... I intend to investigate his Sherlock Holmes and Harry Potter audio books and perhaps others that he has done, as well.

    "A treat"

    I'm very thankful, full of gratitude to Audible for providing this brief, but nonetheless meaningful conversation with Stephen Fry. It is inspiring, encouraging, uplifting, and equally simple and approachable, as Fry relates to us his history with the Sherlock Holmes stories, and his candid reminiscing of recoding audiobooks.

    "Delight ....."

    Stephen Fry is such a delight ! Although in this short conversation he repeats some of the stories from his long recording of Sherlock stories - with his presentation and with the additional stories - it's is pure joy to listen to . I wish he would do more reading of his favorite authors- with his comments !
