Jacobi is a master at this type of genre and he quite simply performs a marvellous job at reading all twelve stories which sequentially span ten discs.
The compelling and fascinating tales from the pen of Sir Arthur Conan Doyle are classic stories which still hold their appeal today, and Jacobi skilfully manoeuvres his way through all the main characters and does not require any subtle orchestration or sound effects to capture the imagination and create excitement.
The stories which are undoubtedly well known to Sherlock Holmes fans are; A Scandal in Bohemia, The Red Headed League, A Case of Identity, The Boscombe Valley Mystery, The Five orange Pips, The Man with the Twisted Lip, The Adventure of the Blue Carbuncle, The Adventure of the Speckled Band, The Adventure of the Engineers Thumb, The Adventure of the Noble Bachelor, The Adventure of the Beryl Coronet and The Adventure of the Copper Beeches.
It is a high quality BBC Audio production. The attractions of the CD, besides the superb story-telling, is it's versatility in terms of listening locations whether in the car, on an MP3 player, or in your favourite armchair.
It will hold your attention from the first minute to the last and is highly recommended.
Imagine my delight when I found both The Adventures of Sherlock Holmes and The Return of Sherlock Holmes The Return of Sherlock Holmes, available, free, for Kindle. However, this version has been interpreted to Kindle by volunteers, which explains why there is the occassional blip in text, particularly in the case of monetary values where strange symbols are used and look something like a software error (lost a star for that).
However the stories themselves are wonderful and quickly transport you back to London in the 1800s. Sherlock Holmes will forever stand the test of time in these classic and clever tales; told by Watson, Holmes long-standing friend and confidant.
