THE ADVENTURES OF SHERLOCK HOLMES I

by | Read by David Timson

Mystery & Suspense • 3.5 hrs. • Abridged • © 1998

This is a perfect audiobook for fans of British drama who also love the classic British investigator. David Timson embodies Holmes in a style that takes him to the top but never over. His Watson is equally correct--sturdy and rather protective of Holmes. But Timson's skills really shine in the secondary characters--the loathsome stepfather in “The Speckled Band,” the conspirators in “The Red-Headed League.” They’re perfect character-actor interpretations. His interpretation of the narrative sections, read in Watson's voice, revels in the drama without overplaying it. As always with Naxos AudioBooks, a fine selection of classical pieces introduces and ends the stories. A.C.S. © AudioFile 2005, Portland, Maine [Published: OCT/NOV 05]
