Description

'He's an intelligent man. He was once rich and is now poor. His wife loved him once, but she doesn't love him now. And he's thirty or forty years old.' One look at an old hat, and Sherlock Holmes can tell you a lot about its owner. He sees - and thinks - a lot more than the people around him, and when a beautiful blue diamond disappears, Sherlock is the only man in London who can find it.

About the author

Arthur Conan Doyle (1859–1930) practiced medicine in the resort town of Southsea, England, and wrote stories while waiting for his patients to arrive. In 1886, he created two of the greatest fictional characters of all time: the detective Sherlock Holmes and his partner, Dr. Watson. Over the course of four novels and fifty-six short stories, Conan Doyle set a standard for crime fiction that has yet to be surpassed.

    One of my favorite childhood author. Felt nostalgic listening to one of his stories. Narration a bit slow had to speed up to 1.2x to make it sound comfortable.

    The author’s consummate skill at telling a tale...he was always a master at it.

    At first I thought to myself I might be impressed if my 7 year old had written this. I mean Sherlock knew the man was smart because he had a big hat, which means a big head, and a big head means a big brain. Seriously? That wasn't the only supposed observation that was just plain silly, either. Then the ending convinced me it was drivel no matter who wrote it. I don't want to give away the end but it was ridiculous. In the next one Sherlock probably gives the criminal a "safe space" and a teddy bear.

    Good story, but the guy who reads for Sherlock talks incredibly slow. I felt like I was being talked down to as Watson the whole way through.

    Nice story with Sherlock and Watson
    Good reading before sleep
