Review: The Adventures of Sherlock Holmes

The Adventures of Sherlock Holmes by Sir Arthur Conan Doyle.

Published Year: 1892
Genre: Fiction
Subtitle: Excellent

"Comprising the series of short stories that made the fortunes of the Strand, the magazine in which they were first published, this volume won even more popularity for Sherlock Holmes and Dr. Watson. Holmes is at the height of his powers in many of his most famous cases, including The Red-Headed LeagueThe Speckled Band, and The Blue Carbuncle."

In general, I'm a big fan of audiobooks narrated by people with accents. Being written by a Brit, The Adventures of Sherlock Holmes, is narrated in a British accent, and it may be my favorite part (after everything Sherlock, of course). 

Definitely pick this one up if you come across it! It's great to listen to occasionally when you have time as it's a compilation of short stories/adventures. Each story only lasts about 45 minutes (less if you speed it up like me).

The adventures read more like detective short stories than the longer novels and have less of a plot line. They're short and sweet. We're still introduced to some excellent casts of characters, but I feel like Sir Arthur takes more risks with the short stories than he does with this longer length novels. We get, what I feel like, are the more "out there" stories, and I feel even more at a loss than Watson does as we follow along on these adventures. 

5 out of 5 stars.
