Pressestimmen

Sir Arthur Conan Doyle has been given a fitting tribute in The Complete Sherlock Holmes...150 years after his birth. I've enjoyed David Timson's spirited readings of the stories ever since The Speckled Band appeared in 1999. He is one of those narrators who sinks himself so convincingly into character, so subtly differentiating timbre, dialect and accent, that you can hardly believe that the reading is being done by a cast of one - this requires extraordinary versatility given the 228 disguises in the four novels and 56 stories starring Holmes that Conan Doyle penned. Timson told me that he elected to go back to the original Strand Magazine version of the tales, warts and all. Conan Doyle never proofread his work, believing that the sweeping energy of the telling was more important that accuracy of detail: "What matter if I can hold my readers?" he said. Hold them he and Timson certainly do. -- Christina Hardyment, The Times 'David Timson must have had difficulty returning to his real self after this recording tour de force - every nuance in his voice is Holmes. All 56 stories nd four novels are here: 60 CDs with a chunky booklet. Years of top listening.' -- Rachel Redford, The Observer 'It has taken 10 years for Timson to record all 60 Sherlock Holmes stories. The hard-working radio actor has completed the project just in time for his bumper compendium to appear as crime-fiction fans mark the 150th anniversary of Conan Doyle, the creator of perhaps still the greatest ficitonal detective...the appeal of the super sleuth was and is irrepressible. Holmes's violin-playing is reflected by the plentiful bursts of plangently atmospheric strings in these productions, and Timson draws a nice vocal contrast between the flinty solver of mysteries and his bluff amanuensis.' -- Karen Robinson, The Sunday Times 'Conan Doyle would surely feel gratified by this magnificent recording of the Holmes canon of four novels and 56 stories. Timson brings to life a huge cast of characters, from murderers to maiden ladies, and there is incidental music by Dvorak, Paganini and others. A tour de force.' -- Jane Shilling, Daily Mail 'This is the first time the entire Holmes canon - four novels, umpteen adventures and scores of stories...has been published in a single package. Here's where I eat my hat and confess that, far from being lukewarm as I've claimed more than once about the legendary sleuth, I am now as addicted to the delights of elementary deduction as Holmes was to opium. What prompted the U-turn? It's hard to pinpoint. The unhurried build-uo of the Holmes/Watson buddy relationship, maybe, described so endearingly by the latter, those fireside evening with the doctor deep in a surgical treatise while his flatmate deciphers the inscriptions on a 15th-century palimpest with a magnifying glass. Then there's Holmes's unpredictable character...And finally there's David Timson's wonderful voice, bringing Conan Doyle's vast and extraordinary cast from every level of Victorian society to life. What a marathon, what a result.' -- Sue Arnold, The Guardian He is one of those narrators who sinks himself so convincingly into character, so subtly differentiating timbre, dialect and accent, that you can hardly believe that the reading is being done by a cast of one - this requires extraordinary versatility given the 228 disguises in the four novels and 56 stories starring Holmes that Conan Doyle penned. -- Christina Hardyment, The Times Over a period of several years, Timson has achieved a feat comparable with the BBC's dramatisations starring Clive Merrison and Michael Williams. As far as I am aware, he is the only reader to have tackled the entire Canon. And he has proved himself equal to the task. All of Conan Doyle's stories are represented in this 60 disc-set, providing nearly 73 hours of listening pleasure - which is an entirely accurate description of the set's contents. I'm happy to report that Timson's work is among the best currently available, not simply of Holmes readings, but of audiobooks in general...Timson has no hidden agenda: he is content to give us the stories as they were meant to be enjoyed, and we can bask in the elegant simplicity of Conan Doyle's effortless prose, which has hardly at all in the last hundred and twenty years. -- Roger Johnson, The Sherlock Holmes Journal This has to be the most stunning boxed set ever! It took 10 years to produce and offers a lifetime of enjoyment: four novels; 56 stories (and an extra written by David Timson); a 200-page booklet; interludes of classical music ... Timson's narration, so much better than any film, is faithful to every nuance. -- Rachel Redford, The Oldie

5.0 von 5 Sternen Sherlock Holmes at his best . . . 2. Dezember 2010
Von idf
Format:Audio CD
Durch Zufall bin ich an eine Sherlock Holmes CD mit David Timson geraten -- und da wollte ich mehr davon: David Timson ist ein Vorlesekünstler, der Conan Doyles Geschichten zu Hörspielen macht, innere Bilder entstehen lässt, den Wunsch weckt, es möge nicht aufhören. Sein Englisch ist gut verständlich, lebendig voller Witz und Ironie. Jetzt habe ich mir den Wunsch erfüllt: 60 CDs -- ein Hörvergnügen, das so schnell nicht enden wird!

5.0 von 5 Sternen Fantastic audiobooks 9. Juni 2012
Von Rosiel - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format:Audio CD|Verifizierter Kauf
I like to listen to audiobooks. I purchased these from an Amazon seller and considerably less than the regular price, and I got a fantastic bargain. It is good value at full retail price, and every price in between.

I cannot really add much to the wonders of Sir Arthur Conan Doyle's magnificent detective and works. They stand on their own merits, and should be read by everyone. I wish to review the audiobooks.

We are talking 60 CD's here. Almost 73 hours. It is the unabridged version. I will not willingly listen or read anything else. I want to hear the author. I was a bit leery, because I was unfamiliar with David Timson, the narrator. This is not the price of a cup of coffee. No worries. He is excellent. He reads at a proper speed, so he is easily understood, without being too slow. As with all excellent readers, you forget the voice, you're listening to a book, with nothing between you and the words. There are violin interludes at appropriate moments, including at the beginning of the CD, and, perhaps, between chapters. Again, just the right amount. The speed is right for the time it was written. It moves forward, but there is time to listen to some gracious musical interludes. I have ripped many to listen on my mp3 player, and it is nice that the volume is low. Sometimes a CD is too loud for even the lowest setting pn my mp3 player.

As far as I know, all the stories are here. I believe they are presented in order, which is nice. Starts with A Study in Scarlet and ends with The Casebook of Sherlock Holmes. All the discs are in one box, each disc in a separate thin cardboard envelope with no flap, but with a printed cover telling what number CD it is in the whole order, along with the title of the collection, if any, and a list of the tracks with titles. They sit in a sturdy box. Also included in the box is a 200 page 'booklet' the size of one of the CD envelopes. The first 70 pages list all the CD's and their tracks, including the title of the story(ies) on the CD. The next 100 pages consist of an analysis, discussion, slight blurb for each of the stories, written by David Timson. I've just read a few, and they add a lot to the stories, because they tend to tell what was going on at the time in Arthur Conan Doyle's life, among other things. Possible reasons why Doyle was not nice to Mormons, for example. Not only is Timson a good narrator, he knows his Sherlock, and it comes through in his reading, and also in the commentary in the booklet.

So, a good listen, in good form, booklet is informative, and if you get this, you don't need any other Sherlock Holmes CD's.

5.0 von 5 Sternen David Timson reads Sherlock Holmes Audiobooks 31. August 2009
Von kayton - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format:Audio CD
This review refers to the Complete Sherlock Holmes Audiobook Collection from Naxos Audiobooks read by David Timson.

I cannot say enough good things about this collection! This is literally the best audiobook collection I have ever listened to and COMPLETELY work the money! Timson is an excellent reader. His voice turns Holmes, Watson and the minor characters into real people. Each story and subsection of story is interspersed with violin music. This collection comes with a detailed booklet filled with commentary.

Even if you have read the Sherlock Holmes stories already, listening to them in this collection gives them new life and meaning. This is a MUST HAVE for any Holmes fan!

5.0 von 5 Sternen Fantastic Reader plus a great writer; what more could you ask? 5. Februar 2012
Von Lewis G - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format:Audio CD
Recently I had the pleasure of listening to an audio cd of The Complete Sherlock Holmes (Classics Fiction) by Sir Arthur Conan Doyle and sold by: pbshopus through Amazon.com and read by David Timson. You can turn this on and sit back with closed eyes and you are almost there. His voice characterizations are a great addition to the stories. I would recommend this audio cd to any Sherlock Holmes fans, especially to anyone who has trouble reading or ageing eyes. If you have never read any Sherlock Holmes detective stories now would be a great time to start.

These unabridged recordings of the original stories are excellent. David Timson is a master of voice characterization. The accompanying music is well suited for these entertaining recordings.
