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 variant of remarkable or amazing available to the English language Benedict Cumberbatch Yes, I ve been Sherlocked, Cumberbatched, what have you But the voice I m a mere mortal and like everyone else, am unable to resist the one with a voice like a jaguar hiding in a cello.That said, I have no freaking idea why he sounds so ancient in this It s like a super power him adding years to his voice And I giggle ever 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 An Inscrutable Masquerade3 starsThe Conundrum of Coach 132.5 starsThe Trinity Vicarage Larceny2 starsThe 10.59 Assassin3 starsNarration 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 the case Like Alan Cumming narrating Specimen Days , it was just an added 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 original Entertaining, y 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 other audio books was HOW Cumberbatch read it Proving what an excellent actor reader he is, he gave nuances to the characters in the story I could distinguish between his Holmes who somehow reminds me of the personality of Robert Downey Jr s Holmes from Guy Ritchie s movies and his Watson who sounds entirely his own Thanks to him, the other characters, clients and villains alike, sound like they had personalities.The stories themselves are quite Conan Doyle esque They are what I call official fanfiction Sir Arthur is probably the most adapted male British author from his era or from the entire history of English literature and thankfully for him, many of the people adapting his works into various forms never really do a poor job Likewise with this collection of stori 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 There are four separate mysteries that are supposedly rediscovered by Dr John Watson in one of his old trunks, and being inspired he has decided to share them with us now The four stories are titled An Inscrutable Masquerade, The Trinity Vicarage, The Conundrum of Coach 13 Larceny, and The 10 59 Assassin All the stories appear to be set before Watson gets married and moves out of 221 B Baker Street.The Inscrutable Masquerade is a case where Sherlock is trying to help the police gather enough evidence to convict a man they know committed murder The police have had to release the convict, and now Sherlock is running top secret experiments to gain the evidence they need In order to protect him, Holmes asks Watson to stay inside 221 B Baker Street, and not open the door or go out, but surly there can be no bad consequences of Watson letting an old friend in The Trin I am not going to pretend that I read err listened to this audio book for any reason other than, well himsigh But, this book did surprise me as it was fairly decent Of course it was nothing like the original, yet the mysteries sometimes managed to draw my attention away Well, that wasn t really some Sherlock Holmes mysteries, in fact, I didn t feel the genious in it, I wasn t expecting it to be just like Sir Conan Doyle s S.H, but at least, just a little bit.The narrator s voice was really pleasant and did limit the damages D
