Description

Benedict Cumberbatch reads these four new Sherlock Holmes stories by John Taylor: 'An Inscrutable Masquerade', 'The Conundrum of Coach 13', 'The Trinity Vicarage Larceny' and 'The 10.59 Assassin'.

Inspired by Arthur Conan Doyle's original Sherlock Holmes stories, John Taylor has written four more mysteries featuring the world's greatest detective.

Read by acclaimed actor Benedict Cumberbatch, these new adventures share all the suspense of the original tales.

In a drawer in his bureau, Dr. Watson keeps a locked cedarwood chest - a 'box of secrets'.

It contains an archive of notes referring to some of Holmes' cases that, for one reason or another, never saw the light of day. Now, for the first time, Watson has decided to reveal the truth to the world....

In these four thrilling stories, Holmes experiments with the science of ballistics, locates some missing gold bullion, investigates the theft of a large amount of money and solves the baffling mystery of the Stovey murder.

No One Writes Holmes Like Doyle

I've read almost every Holmes story there is and I'm a huge fan of Cumberbatch's interpretation in the BBC's current iteration.

I was more than a little disappointed, then, to find that these stories did not capture my interest at all. The first was so obvious, with so little mystery, that I was yelling the conclusion at the unbearably slow Dr. Watson about midway through. The other stories improved in complexity somewhat, but without the extraordinary amount of knowledge that Sir Arthur Conan Doyle brought to his tales, Mr. Taylor's Holmes didn't seem to know much more about the world than I did myself.

Benedict Cumberbatch's performance was as delightful and nuanced as one would expect, so the read wasn't a total loss. And the quality of the writing itself was very good. It just wasn't the Sherlock Holmes I know and love.

Benedict can read a grocery list brilliantly

Who could possibly resist listening to Mr. Cumberbatch read anything?
These stories are just so-so, but it's sheer pleasure hearing this brilliant and amazing actor!

Great Reading

I love Cumberbatch's reading. It's perfect for Sherlock Holmes. The speed of this reading is also good. Others have been extremely slow.

Really entertaining

What made the experience of listening to Benedict Cumberbatch Reads Sherlock Holmes' Rediscovered Railway Stories the most enjoyable?

I love Benedict Cumberbatch. Great voice to listen to as well and his performance of the characters is really great.

Who was your favorite character and why?

Watson. Usually in Sherlock Holmes stories Sherlock Holmes is my favorite character but in this series of short stories you just have more information and insight into Waston as the stories are told from his point of view and they are so short.

Any additional comments?

Not quite as good as any of the original stories by Sir Arthur Conan Doyle but still entertaining and intriguing.

Not Doyle

Though the stories are likeable they seem mostly like Sherlock Holmes because of Benedict Cumberbatch's reading of them than the stories themselves. Taylor is not another Arthur Conan Doyle for sure, but not bad either.

Cumberbatch is great, though most of his different 'accents' are rather similar. He is Sherlock and it is a little difficult to listen to him read the stories as Watson, but this is a personal issue.

That voice

What made the experience of listening to Benedict Cumberbatch Reads Sherlock Holmes' Rediscovered Railway Stories the most enjoyable?

Benedict Cumberbatch has the most wonderful way of moving through each of the characters and placing you, the listener, in the room with them. Cumberbatch unfolds the mystery through the wonderful narratives written by John Taylor.

Have you listened to any of Benedict Cumberbatch’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

I haven't listened to Cumberbatch narrate anything before this & after finishing this book... I promptly spent all my money buying up everything he's ever narrated!

Any additional comments?

Enjoy! Any Benedict Cumberbatch fan will not regret it x

Passt einfach total, auch wenn er ja genaugenommen Watson liest ;)
