    After my past encounters with some disappointing pieces of Sherlock Holmes pastiches, I started running away from them like I avoid calls of notorious telemarketers. But as always, there are times when I let myself get stupidly wooed by irresistible offers, and this was one of them. I mean, who can resist Benedict Cumberlord?

    I am not going to pretend that I read err.. listened to this audio book for any reason other than, well him


    sigh But, this book did surprise me as it was fairly decent. Of course it was nothing like the origin

    Four Sherlock Holmes stories narrated by Benedict Cumberbatch? YES PLEASE!
    This little audiobook is perfect if you have to do little chores and don't want the time to be spent just with those boring tasks! Benedict Cumberbatch has an amazing narrating voice to listen to and I fairly enjoyed it. (Plus, imagining him and Martin Freeman as Sherlock and Watson while listening is a big PLUS! ;-P

    'An Inscrutable Masquerade' - 3 stars
    'The Conundrum of Coach 13' - 2.5 stars
    'The Trinity Vicarage Larceny'- 2 stars
    'The 10.59 Assassin' - 3 stars

    Narration: 5 Stars.. Benedict Cumberbatch is pretty good as a narrator for this. He voices everyone wonderfully and I didn't have trouble falling into the stories. I was wondering if I'd be distracted by his voice but that wasn't t

    I'm not a fan of audio books, because I truly love reading at my own pace, and you can't do that when someone is reading to you. I'm a control freak like that, and I love being able to turn pages back and forth, particularly when I've missed something or am in awe or something. This is the first audio book I've ever listened to, and only because it contains the voice of one very [insert every possible vari

    I don't usually 'read' audio books and I wouldn't even start listening to this one if it weren't for the fact that Benedict Cumberbatch was reading it. The highlight of the entire work is, for me, Mr. Cumberbatch's excellent reading. I'm not even going to deny that I'm a fan of his sexy baritone, but what convinced me to stick through this whole audio book experience and not give up on it the way I did the o

    I'm in a Sherlock Holmes mood at the moment, partially due to the book I'm reading about the character's evolution and partially due to the NYE special. So when this popped up as a suggestion on my audiobook app I had to listen to it.

    It's a very short book - much like Conan Doyle's tales about this great detective - but the four stories included in this audiobook were not all as good as the origina

    More like 2.5: The mysteries were Ok, sometimes a little boring. But Cumbertbatch narration was, as expected, fabulous. I really hope someone pays him to read the original Sherlock.

    I was so excited to find that Benedict Cumberbatch had done the reading for an audio-book version of Sherlock Holmes. However, I was a little sad to realize that it is not one of Sir Arthur Conan Doyle’s novels, but instead a new author who was attempting to write as the characters. I went and found a copy of this and started listening. I was cautiously optimistic. Honestly, how bad could it be, I thought!

    These were great little stories that fit very well within the Sherlock world. Of course they were wonderfully narrated by Benedict Cumberbatch.

    My only complaint is that they felt way too short and sometimes very rushed to the conclusion.
