To call this only a 'reading' of the classic Sherlock Holmes story would be to devalue the beauty of the performance. Although you may have heard recordings of the Sherlock Holmes work before with distance and haughty affectation, none of that is present in Mr. Davies storytelling performance. This features one man, many voices and a hefty portion of talent. This performance is fresh, approachable and inviting. (Storyteller.net Review)

    " Amazing book to read! I simply loved it! I am officially hooked on the Sherlock Holmes series and cannot stop watching and reading it. There were some challenging words within the novel but overall it was a fantastic read and was definitely worth while! I recommend this book to anyone who loves great mysteries and enjoys thinking for long periods of time! ;) "

    " This is one of the novels that would steal your time as can't wait to finish it once you start reading it.Its worth it but would be more of a childish novel. "

    " Not a very big fan of long sherlock Holmes books, but this was surprisingly good, Watson proves to be a very good companion and Sherlock appears at the perfect time. 3 stars for me "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Alicia | 5/1/2008

    " Rachel was reading this for school, so I read it too. I loved it! And it was fun to howl like a dog to scare her when she was in her dark room trying to fall asleep. I wish I'd "discovered" these fun mystery books when I was young, instead of just reading and rereading Nancy Drew books endlessly. "

    " Thoroughly enjoyed. I'm glad I'm finally getting around to reading these (albeit out of order...). Now that I know the original story, I'm going to go watch The Great Mouse Detective and the new BBC Sherlock again, haha. "

About the Author

Sir Arthur Conan Doyle (1859–1930) was born of Irish parentage in Scotland. He studied medicine at the University of Edinburgh, but he also had a passion for storytelling. His first book introduced that prototype of the modern detective in fiction, Sherlock Holmes. Despite the immense popularity Holmes gained throughout the world, Doyle was not overly fond of the character and preferred to write other stories. Eventually popular demand won out and he continued to satisfy readers with the adventures of the legendary sleuth. He also wrote historical romances and made two essays into pseudoscientific fantasy: The Lost World and The Poison Belt.
