Publisher's Summary

Arthur Conan Doyle never wasted time in getting his stories moving. His plots are always direct and refreshingly lucid, and the narrative has a velocity that sweeps you along right to the end. This was no doubt a large part of his immense worldwide success. Not surprisingly, each time he tried to end the series, his fans would howl in protest. But, as he says in the preface to his last collection of Sherlock Holmes stories, all good things must come to an end. And so it is with this series, as we have now arrived at the end of the Sherlock Holmes tales, Conan Doyle's most magnificent creation.
This last volume contains one novel, The Valley of Fear, and two collections of short stories: His Last Bow and The Case Book of Sherlock Holmes.

Complete at last

Volume 3 finally finishes the Complete Stories of Sherlock Holmes. Included among the 3 volumes are every short story and novel that Sir Arthur Conan Doyle wrote starring this illustrious detective. No library is complete without Sherlock Holmes on the (proverbial) shelf.

excellent story, terrible narrator

Excellent stories ruined by a narrator whose pronunciation jars so much it prevents one from enjoying the narrative. Four particularly infuriating examples from the early chapters of 'The valley of fear':

Hawlms instead of Homes, Seesell for Cecil, shawn for shone, and INkwerry instead of inQUIRy.

These come up repeatedly, and apart from Seesell, the others - especially Hawlms - will be reiterated throughout the whole book.

Please please can we have this quintessentially English book in spoken ENGLISH?
