"If you've ever listened to the Harry Potter audiobooks, you'll know that Stephen Fry is responsible for the cosy and eternally reassuring voice that plays out during the recording of J.K Rowling's iconic books. Now, he's turned his talents to a brand new reading of Sir Arthur Conan Doyle's entire Sherlock Holmes catalogue - and the thought of it has already got us clambering to pull up a comfy armchair in front of a roaring fire." (Metro)

What can one say...?

Stephen Fry reading the entire Sherlock Holmes... Is there much more that can be said? It's as wonderful as it sounds. It's read with aplomb and with the obvious love that Fry has of the source material. My ONE critique would be that Fry doesn't know his Irish accents quite well enough for the Irish characters, but that's being picky. His forewords are excellent and also give an insight into Conan Doyle's own history at the time of writing. Very interesting to apply that to the context of the subsequent passages. And Stephen Fry could read the back of a cornflakes packet and make it interesting, so with this, it's just wonderful. The perfect way to absorb all the greatest detective stories written.

A journey

Amazing collection expertly narrated by Fry. Very much enjoyed the delivery and even though some of the accents he used were quite amusing, his talent is undeniable. A true S.H marathon but by the end of it I felt in par with the great investigator himself. Highly recommend.

Excellent production

Previously bought Charlton Griffiths production of Sherlock Holmes.
Bought this one as I would like to listen to Stephen Fry’s narration.

Did an excellent job of pronunciation, characterisation including excellent Australian, South African and German accents.
The female voices were believable and added to the story.
Particularly liked the tone and inflection of the narration which fit with the speech. Eg Sherlock chuckled resulted in the passage being read with a chuckle.

Things which could have been added that I enjoyed Charlton Griffiths production were certain sound effects. Eg the gunshots during the narration of the killing of the despicable blackmailer Augustus Milverton.

Other than that very minor point would highly recommend to anybody wanting to transport themselves to a different age as I found it highly immersive.

I now press play to hear it again.

Outstanding!

Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

I would recommend this to anyone without hesitation.

What about Stephen Fry’s performance did you like?

Stephen Fry is truly a treasure. His style and technique are simply perfect. He is clear and his tone is steady and consistent. His voice characterizations are realistic and do not, in any way, irritate me like so many other readers. Additionally, Mr. Fry provides commentary at the start of each section. His comments are humorous and intelligent. I can't think of anyone else of this calibre. It is so easy to see that this is truly a work of love for Mr. Fry.

Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

It is impossible to listen to 71 hours in one sitting!

Any additional comments?

I have read the original stories many times. I also have many variations of Sherlock Homes, either radio productions or voiced reading. By far and above, this is absolutely the finest collection and reading made. For anyone who wants a "definitive" version which will be their "go to" version, this is it. Hands down. I will be listening to this collection for many years.

Stephen Fry's mastery performance

The stories are magical. The performance is splendid. One of my best listening experiences ever. Fry's different voices gives life to the great detective and his partner in a way that you think you're in the opposite chair.

A narrator to fit the story.

The immortality of the stories about the adventures of Sherlock Holmes and John Watson speaks for themselves. What makes this collection special is the narration of Stephen Fry. He makes the characters come to life and gives them personality with his splendid performance. A truly extraordinaire storyteller. His forewords too are filled with passion for the Sherlock-saga, personal anecdotes and information about the author, Sir Arthur Conan Doyle. I can only recommend this!

A gem to take in doses

Just shy of 72 hours, this is not a “book” (it is a collection of books) to listen to continuously. Sherlock Holmes stories can become a bit boilerplate, so it is good to listen to some, and then it it aside for a while, though many times when you think you figured it out, you missed something. But every one is delightful in itself, and I recommend that you definitely add this to your library, and then listen to a few stories at a time, especially when you need a break from whatever might be getting you down. You couldn’t get a better deal (and I think I got it on some sale), penny per amount of pleasurable listening. Stephen Fry is magical. In the introduction he tells us that he is a big fan, and you can hear the enchantment in his superlative rendition. (Even his American accent is not bad!) I felt truly privileged to listen to him read to me. I would not be responsible, though, if I did not express my usual dismay at the bits of racism and anti-Semitic tropes found here and there in these stories. It is no surprise - it is pretty standard for literature of the time, but I squirmed when a particular thug, who happened to be black (why am I told this at all? Why the dialect?) was described as a savage, or his hair as wooly. We read of a “Jew peddler” and other such tropes, and, in the very last story, The Case of Shoscombe Old Place, we repeatedly hear about “the Jews”, when the intent is creditors. In fact, Sir Robert - a bad guy in deep debt - says that his “chief creditor” is Sam Brewer, which doesn’t sound like a Jewish name at all. But even if he is Jewish, Sir Robert is not “in the hands of the Jews”. He owes a lot of money to Sam Brewer. Like much other literature that is otherwise worthy, my own approach is that we should call it out, we should express our discomfort and hopes that it is history and that readers today recognize these attitudes for the bigotry that they were, but we can still enjoy the books. In the case of this collection, these are definitely minor warts (unlike, for example, Shylock or Fagin). There are essays and articles that address Arthur Conan Doyle’s attitudes to people who were not white and to Jews - they are worth looking at to put a historical context on this problem.

Absolutely Enthralling

Have you ever binge watched your favorite series and when you finally get to the last episode, you feel a bit lost and sad that you have finished the series. That's how I felt after listening to the epic stories that make up this amazing audio book. I loved every story, so brilliantly told by Stephen Fry who is an absolute genius in his narrating. Rather than become old and dated, Arthur Conan Doyle's Sherlock Holmes is as clever and entertaining as he was when he first appeared on paper. I cannot state how much I enjoyed listening to these stories in the car, on my walks, while running, while cooking.. just whenever I could get away with having earphones attached to my head. This is the most worthwhile audio book I have ever bought!

Simply brilliant!

Genau 130 Jahre nach dem ersten Sherlock-Holmes-Roman "A Study in Scarlet" die Klassiker von Ignatius Arthur Conan Doyle, MD, rezensieren zu wollen, wäre anachronistisch. Seine Werke sind längst über alle Interpretationen und Zweifel erhaben. Nur so viel sei erlaubt: Verglichen mit der inzwischen gewaltig nervenden Flut von Tatorten, Polizeirufen, CIS, Schweden-, Bozen- , Nordsee-… Krimis sind die Holmes-Fälle heute immer noch bedeutend erfrischender, origineller, intelligenter und wesentlich amüsanter als der - halten zu Gnaden - eindimensionale Stuss, den die Fließband-Drehbücher liefern.

Also sei der Fokus hier auf die vorliegende Hörbuch-Produktion gerichtet. Auch dazu haben britische Rezensenten bereits eine einheitliche Meinung veröffentlicht, der ich mich hier bedingungslos anschließen möchte: Brillant! Holmes gelesen von Fry sei eine "Marriage in Heaven", schrieb ein englischer Literaturkenner, und er halt absolut Recht.

Zum ersten Mal – jedenfalls in meiner Wahrnehmung – treten Holmes und Dr. Watson nicht als bloßes Detektiv-Duo auf, sondern sind vielmehr faszinierende Ikonen der very britischen (Männer-) Gesellschaft des 19. Jahrhunderts. Fry's Interpretation ist wunderbar suggestiv und wer sich hoffentlich darauf einlässt, erlebt eine wirkliche Zeitreise in die faszinierende Welt des viktorianischen British Empires.

Wer meint, er kenne die Holmes-Stories bereits zur Genüge, verpasst eine wunderbare Gelegenheit, sie auf wirklich mitreißende Art gelesen neu zu entdecken. Freudig überrascht haben mich die Einleitungen und Erläuterungen aus eigener Hand, die Fry einigen der Geschichten voran stellt. In Stil, Kenntnis und Diktion sind sie selbst meisterhaft.

Für mich gehört diese Produktion ganz oben in die Jahrhundert-Top-10 der (Audible-) Hörbücher.

Der Spaß, den ich an diesem Hörbuch habe, lässt sich kaum beschreiben! Natürlich sind die Geschichten toll. Stephen Fry erweckt sie meisterhaft zum Leben und die extra für diese Sammlung geschriebenen Einleitung setzen das Ganze in den historischen und literaturwissenschaftlichen Kontext, stellen Bezüge her zum Heute und zu Stephen Frys eigenen Leben. Nicht zu übertreffen und viele, viele Stunden größtes Vergnügen!

Great stories, perfect narrator

I’ve listened to this twice now and love it as much as when I first started. It’s a good bargain, listening time is top an the narrator Stephen fry is great. He has a very gentle deep voice and does not overdo the different characters while still giving them some individuality. The stories are classic victorian, with all that comes with the society of that age. Don’t expect to meet many heroines (or in fact women who aren’t either villains, housewives or spinsters). The sexism and racism of the time is noticeable, but the roles and stories are well thought-through and the people portrayed are not shallow nor cliche.

Wirklich eine Meisterleistung. Mir gefällt besonders gut, dass dieses Hörbuch so lang ist! Durch die Einührungen von Stephen Fry hat man nicht nur den leichteren Zugang, man hat auch den Eindruck einem echten Experten zu lauschen. Sprachlich ist der Lesung sehr gut zu folgen. Das Meisterstück hat mich auf ganzer Linie überzeugt.

There is not much to say about Sherlock Holmes that has not been said already a thousand times. But this collection is wonderfully read. I am just listening to it for the third time in a row. My respect to the as always brilliant Mr. Fry.
