For those embarking on their first ever encounter with the pipe-smoking, violin-playing sleuth, this is just the beginning of an unforgettable journey. Listen on Apple Podcasts. I listened on my way to and from work. The reader, at first, was not to my liking. The voices of the extras, always seems to come off as Southern American.
But a few episodes in, I grew to like him. I really enjoyed the stories, but then again, they are Doyle tales. Apple Podcasts Preview. Show 6 More Episodes. Customer Reviews See All. Nice Try! Watson may be the dutifully biographer, but his role is also that of the slightly foolish, but endlessly appreciative audience. It is as if it is only through his reactions that we learn when to gasp and when to applaud with awesome wonder. Watson is the laughing track of his day.
But Holmes repeatedly asserting his intellectual superiority at the beginning of each story is fascinating as it also hints at insecurities in his character. He requires reassurance. He is a flawed character, our Holmes. There is also the problem of his drug addiction which he invariably turns to out of sheer boredom - and invariably that is intellectual boredom. It is something I found myself remembering as Holmes performs his tricks. Perhaps his 'coldness' explains this - perhaps it is because he is the model of the detached scientist that it is alright to like him.
Now, talking of love. My eldest daughter became particularly fond of Mr Holmes about five years ago. So much so that she read all of his stories after we watched many of the BBC TV shows of his works made in the s. One day she had been reading one of the stories in this book and Watson mentions, in an off-hand way, that one can calculate how tall someone is from the length of their stride. And so Fi actually tried this, taking various measurements and doing a series of calculations.

Another forgettable one. Apparently so, when they're accompanied by the letters K. This one is atmospheric and compelling reading, but I'm dinging it for Doyle's complete disregard for actual historical facts about the KKK.
This story is also notable for view spoiler [being one of the few total fails by Sherlock Holmes hide spoiler ]. Watson's character and for the evocative description of Victorian era drug abuse and opium dens. Doyle slips up again on his research Sherlock would be ashamed because carbuncles are, by definition, red jewels rubies , but this was a fun jewel thievery escapade.
The best mystery in this collection!
Don't miss it. A subtler and better mystery than I expected. There's a strange employer, a giant dog that prowls the premises looking for people to eat, and a servant with a surprising story. These stories are easy to pop down like so many potato chips, but I found I enjoyed them more when I spaced them out a little. Just a suggestion. View all 3 comments.
