Study In Scarlet (version 5)

Book cover
By: (1859-1930)

"A Study in Scarlet" is the first ever Sherlock Holmes story split into two quite distinctive parts. The first part is told from the viewpoint of Dr. John Watson and recounts his first experiences of meeting the illustrious Sherlock Holmes and their subsequent co-habitation and crime-solving partnership. The second is told in a third person narrative and is set in the USA, setting an elaborate back-story to the eventual motive of the murderer, before returning to the UK towards the end of part two, the narration, once again, being picked up by Dr. John Watson.

A good story that was made even more enjoyable by great narrator. The audio was very well done. Agreeing with another reviewer, it felt as if being read to by an older Dr. Watson.

The narrator really made the story enjoyable, like others it made me feel like an older Dr Watson was reading it.

One of the best of the Sherlock Holmes series. Ironically this is the last one I listened to and it is the first in the entire series! The narrator, has a wonderful voice and narrating style. Great tone and timber and just enough inflection to keep it interesting.

The author has his geography mixed up, but the middle part of the story is amazingly accurate! I thought I'd read all of the Sherlock Holmes books/stories, but somehow I missed this one. It amazed me with its accuracy of some little-known material.

A wonderful audio edition of this classic. The reader is a bit slow, but very much like Dr. Watson.
