Good stories, wonderful narrator!
on 16 October 2014
Benedict Cumberbatch has the most magnificient voice - and his speech is flawless. I got hypnotized while listening to the new adventures of the Baker Street crime-fighting duo on my MP4: not only does Cumberbatch manages to enthrall us with the suspense, but he also does different accents (American, country-style, etc) while remaining understantable even for a non-native English-speaking listener!
The stories are quite good - my only complain is that they are short! John Taylor did a good job in writing plots involving thieves, missing goods and trains. Also, he's respectful towards the Conan Doyle's universe and has managed to keep the Holmes/Watson friendship intact instead of conveniently turning Watson into the comic-relief fool.
A good purchase!
