Editor reviews

Any fan of the great British detective would be most pleased with this sterling presentation, ably read by David Timson. Every character, from Holmes and Watson to a German spy, a hoodlum, and Holmes's older brother, Mycroft, is clearly and cleverly defined and vocally dynamic. Each of the seven tales has its own distinct flavor and provides a colorful look at life in England between 1908 and 1914. The only problem with this audio presentation is that the stories are over too quickly, making one long to spend just a bit more time with Dr. Watson and the master of deduction.

Summary

Further adventures by the master of observation and deduction, as faithfully recounted by his companion and greatest admirer, Dr Watson. The Adventure of the Bruce-Partington Plans, The Disappearance of Lady Frances Carfax and The Adventure of the Dying Detective are among the stories. David Timson's award-winning performances continue with this series.

PLEASE NOTE: When you purchase this title, the accompanying reference material will be available in your My Library section along with the audio.

Critic reviews

"(The Reminiscences) were written between 1908 and 1913, when the British Empire was increasingly at bay against other colonial powers and moves towards independence." (The Times)

Sublime reading by David Timson

A great audio adaptation of the book. David Timson is a fine voice to bring out the inflections of Conan Doyle's writing.
