Perfect for those long, housework hours,
This review is from: Further Adventures of Sherlock Holmes: v. 4 (BBC Audio) (Audio CD)
Customer review from the Amazon Vine Programme (What's this?)
When you're stuck doing the ironing or dishes, or even if you just want to relax on the sofa for a while then the radio drama of Sherlock Holmes makes for perfect listening. This Vol. 4 edition features 3 stories, including a two-parter, across four CDs with an average running time of about 43 minutes. First broadcast in late 2008 the dramas star Clive Merrison and Andrew Sachs. The sound effects and ambiance are great and really do place you in the fictional environments. The dialogue is stereophonic too, which makes it a little more sophisticated than old-time radio dramas for those of you who have more than one speaker.
I'd also recommend this product to parents who want their children to get more into books. I had loads of audiobooks as a kid and I remember them fondly. It's a great "in" to the world of literature and a step (in the right direction) away from video games.
