mabell That one is one of my favorites too! But I also always enjoyed The Sign of the Four. 1d
CrowCAH @CogsOfEncouragement there are several to chose from! 14h
CrowCAH @Brooke_H woohoo yay! 😁 14h
CrowCAH @Bklover I remember watching a program on TV when I was younger and being spooked by the tale. Then I read the story later in life and appreciated the text. Sometimes it‘s not about remembering the details but how we felt about it in the end. 14h
CrowCAH @mabell I‘ve only read a few Holmes stories. I‘ll have to put The Sign of the Four on the TBR. 14h
JazzFeathers I didn't realised yesterday was Shelock Holmes Day. Yet l celebrated it. I met with a friend that is a fanatic of the TV series and is walking me through it. We watched The Abominable Bride yesterday night, and l loved it. 8h
CrowCAH @JazzFeathers wow! What great perfect timing!!! 6h

I took too much time between starting and finishing the audio, and I completely forgot the plot of the first of the three short stories that comprise The Empty Hours. I know I enjoyed most of the second story, but I can‘t remember the whodunnit. Having just finished, I can say that I really loved the way the third played out. The problem with binging this series is that they all run together. 🤦🏻‍♀️

I found the first half a bit harder to follow, as there were a LOT of characters, so I found it a bit tricky to keep them and their stories and relationships to Strike straight. One of the relationships that did stick in my head was Strike‘s stepfather. We learn about Strike‘s childhood – his mother was murdered, and Strike believes it was his stepfather who did it. I thought it really picked up in the second half.

Now starting. Looking forward to revisiting these characters, but I feel like it was a bit of a squandered opportunity to use this title on book 4 in the series..

Leftcoastzen I have the first one around here somewhere , still on TBR. 2d

Another good mystery! I enjoyed the fact that Kinsey thought she had finally narrowed down the killer and the story took a turn to reveal who the actual murderer was. And the whole book I was hoping it wasn‘t that person. I felt all the emotion she did about him and how the story ended. I think this is my favorite story out of the first 4!

Of the three unluckiest days in Barbara Allen‘s life, the first was the day Clara Rinker was raped behind a St. Louis nudie bar called Zanadu, which was located west of the city in a dusty checkerboard of truck terminals, warehouses and light assembly plants.

Great fun, perfectly read by Stephen Fry. I read Sherlock Holmes a lot as a young person, I‘m not as much in love now as I was then. But it‘s great comfort reading (and listening!).
