Very enjoyable

This is a nice choice of some of the interesting detective cases of Sherlock Holmes and Doctor Watson. Sir Ben Kingsley is an excellent narrator, very easy to listen to. His voices for the various characters are just right, making it easy to tell Holmes from Scotland Yard’s Inspector Lastrade, Watson, the criminals, and others. His French accent in one of the stories is especially well done. I definitely recommend this to fans of traditional British mystery stories.

Author Bio: Sir Arthur Conan Doyle

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.
