Review of the Audiobook (Hierloom Collection)
on 3 October 2014
This is a review of the Audiobook (Hierloom Collection). I assume anyone thinking of buying this audiobook will be familiar with the Holmes stories so I shan't comment on them.
The audiobook is a collection of all the original stories on 4 cds. The format is MP3 and the audio quality is fine. Simon Vance reads the stories clearly, if on occasions slightly to fast for my liking - but with no detriment to the clarity. The book is read but unlike some audiobook renditions is not turned into a one man show. SV changes his voice to identify individuals in the story which helps enliven the telling but isn't over the top.
I was astonished at the price of this audiobook (£14) when the other major quality audiobook collection is 10 times this price! It is extremely good value for money.
I listen to audiobooks while travelling on trains and planes and this is one of the best buys I have had.
