Winner of Audible's 2017 Members' Choice Award

"...it was reading the Sherlock Holmes stories as a boy that first turned me on to the power of writing and storytelling." (Stephen Fry)

Ever since he made his first appearance in A Study In Scarlet, Sherlock Holmes has enthralled and delighted millions of fans throughout the world. Now Audible is proud to present Arthur Conan Doyle's Sherlock Holmes: The Definitive Collection, read by Stephen Fry. A lifelong fan of Doyle's detective fiction, Fry has narrated the complete works of Sherlock Holmes - four novels and five collections of short stories. And, exclusively for Audible, Stephen has written and narrated nine insightful, intimate and deeply personal introductions to each title.

Stephen Fry is an English actor, screenwriter, author, playwright, journalist, comedian, television presenter, film director and all round national treasure. He is the acclaimed narrator of J.K. Rowling's Harry Potter audiobooks and most recently recorded The Tales of Max Carrados for Audible Studios. Stephen has contributed columns and articles to newspapers and magazines, appears frequently on radio and has written four novels and three volumes of autobiography.

Critic reviews

"The pairing of Fry and Holmes is a bit of a marriage made in heaven...." (New York Times)

"[Fry] gets into character with his habitual genius..." (The Times)


"Sherlock Holmes. Narrated by Stephen Fry. Need I say more? Honestly though, what a perfect way to get away from it all while you're cooking dinner, commuting, or tidying up this weekend." (Buzzfeed)


"If you're a fan of Sherlock Holmes, Stephen Fry, or the simple pleasure of the audiobook, today's your lucky day. Audible have unveiled a brand new reading of Sir Arthur Conan Doyle's entire Sherlock Holmes catalogue, all performed by Fry's dulcet tones." (Evening Standard)


"If you've ever listened to the Harry Potter audiobooks, you'll know that Stephen Fry is responsible for the cosy and eternally reassuring voice that plays out during the recording of J.K Rowling's iconic books. Now, he's turned his talents to a brand new reading of Sir Arthur Conan Doyle's entire Sherlock Holmes catalogue - and the thought of it has already got us clambering to pull up a comfy armchair in front of a roaring fire." (Metro)


"Having already narrated one of the world's best-selling book series in the form of Harry Potter, Stephen Fry has returned to the recording booth to take on another hugely popular series." (BBC)

"It doesn't get much more British than Stephen Fry talking about Sherlock." (Mashable)


"Sherlock Holmes is the unfading literary icon - as beloved and as relevant as he was over 120 years ago. To celebrate his currency, Audible has released Sherlock Holmes: The Definitive Collection; Arthur Conan Doyle's complete adventures of the famed detective, as narrated by lifelong fan Stephen Fry, including nine personal introductions exclusive to Audible." (The Independent)

So long but spectacular

The storys of sherlock holmes are brilliant both psychological and practical. On three or four of the cases I was able to think of how that was done or what that was done for. Great narration we'll done but with how long this over seventy one hours having a female voice really would of helped for the female roles. Stephen fry did a absolutely brilliant job with all the voices putting in little details when he spoke making the characters come to life.

Worth having in the library

You get a lot of story for your money! Stephen Fry's reading of the classic stories is brilliant .. brings the characters to life and is perfect for the period setting of the original stories. There are so many diverse stories, and they are perfect for journeys of any length. It's a perfect book to have in the 'library' to dip into whenever you have time. Loving them.

By far my favorite audiobook so far

This definitely one of the best compilation of story i listened to. Fry is doing a fantastic job and never once i felt bored.
This has been my go to book during travel and idle time at home during quarantine.
The duration of it makes it very worth it and the grand classic of Sherlock Holmes does betray its reputation.
Highly recommended to all who loves old school novels.
