The book was first published in February 1905 by McClure, Phillips & Co. (New York) then on March 7, 1905 by Georges Newnes, Ltd. (London) and was the first Holmes collection since 1893, when Holmes had "died" in The Final Problem. Having published The Hound of the Baskervilles in 1901–1902 (setting it before Holmes' death) Doyle came under intense pressure to revive his famous character. The first story is set in 1894 and has Holmes returning in London and explaining the period from 1891–94, a period called "The Great Hiatus" by Sherlockian enthusiasts. Also of note is Watson's statement in the last story of the cycle that Holmes has retired, and forbids him to publish any more stories.
I love the narration. It is fantastic. Thank you all.
Narrators throughout are easy to understand and emphasize appropriately which makes stories exciting.
Book is well read. Plot is solid as Holmes never disappoints.
22nd January 2018 - Return of Sherlock Holmes, chapter 9. (Adventure of the Priory School). I love listening to the podcasts, but occasionally it is spoilt by the narrator. In this instance, I found her hard to listen to. Her reading sounded as though she was reading a list, with little intonation, so that it was difficult to know when the characters were speaking, or she was just reading. Also not even a subtle difference between characters. Part 1 was the worst. In part 2, she sounded as though she couldn't wait to finish! What a pity.
I couldn't get into this because a woman was reading the book it needs to be a man with an English accent
I wish we can read mattybraps' s books on here.From a phone.:'(
Good readers throughout with no heavy accents.
What's the point of having a female narrator when Sherlock's adventures are clearly from Watson's POV? Breaks immersion and no attempt and varied voices for all the female narrators. Very disappointing.
Good as always!
doing great..listening stories is really thriling & awesome xperience...keep it up...and keep going
