Publisher's Summary

Imagine a Holmes without his Boswell or, as is the case with the audiobook you will soon have to your ears, imagine a Holmes without the voice of Watson. Is there a difference? After all, we have learned about the great detective, not through his own voice and eyes but through that of his loyal companion, his dear friend and his Boswell. What might we be missing? Who else could tell of the great detective’s feats?

Enjoyable tales

This anthology is of reasonably good quality and introduces some interesting viewpoints that aren’t seen in the canonical tales. Some are sublime, others are implausible, and the rest are serviceable.

The narrator’s performance mars some of the quality with American accents sounding more like Joe Pesci than anything else and a number of mispronounced words or repeated sentences that should have been caught during production (the most egregious of these is in an early tale where a perambulation is pronounced as prerambulation).

Trying narration

I managed the first story, which was itself ok, but the very odd narration which totally distracted from the experience was even worse in the second so I gave up. Pity.
