Great book, excellent reader,
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Sherlock Holmes: A Study In Scarlet (Audio CD)
Distinguished actor Derek Jacobi is a great reader of audiobooks. I hope he does many more. This is the book in which Watson meets his eccentric flatmate for the first time, and Holmes displays his methods to the police. It is set in a world of fogs, mud and hackney carriages (horse-drawn taxis). The only flaw in the book is that we leave London, and Holmes and Watson, for a long digression set in the .... Wild West??? But Doyle is such a good writer that this section is pretty thrilling.
