Summary

In the more than 100 years since Doyle created the immortal Sherlock Holmes and his assistant, Dr. Watson, no other mystery writer has come close to eclipsing him as the standard bearer in crime fiction. A brilliant London-based "consulting detective," Holmes is famous for his intellectual prowess and is renowned for his skillful use of astute observation, deductive reasoning, and inference to solve difficult cases. Holmes is at the height of his powers here in this collection of 12 of his most famous cases, including "The Red-Headed League" and "The Adventure of the Speckled Band."

Made irrelevant by the definitive edition

Just buy the definitive edition and don't waste any money or credits on this now obsolete version.

The narrator is my favourite narrator outside God.

Would you consider the audio edition of The Adventures of Sherlock Holmes to be better than the print version?

No that is absurd.

What other book might you compare The Adventures of Sherlock Holmes to and why?

Any Agatha Christie I suppose.

Which character – as performed by Ralph Cosham – was your favorite?

Watson.

Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

It made me feel feelings of feelings. Does that make sense? Oh bother, I feel that it does... :-)

Any additional comments?

Cosham is a boss applesauce. (As Judge Judy made famous)...
