"It took me a few minutes to overcome my prejudice that Sherlock Holmes should be narrated by an Englishman. I’m glad I did! Books are translated into different languages and Shakespeare adapted successfully to the modern age. MY does ACD’s luxurious prose and memorable characters proud in the consulting detective’s first appearance to the world. The quality and range of M’s voice; her eloquence and intonation; and her skilful interpretation – all serve to weave the listener into one of the great stories of the detective genre. Whether it’s the action in London and the American plains or the inner workings of H’s deductive reasoning, MY delivers a captivating listening experience."
"Marnye Young narrates this audio version and does a brilliant job, I’m now a strong advocate for audiobooks. Marnye has a natural melodic voice that is relaxing and comforting to listen to. From Amy with a natural US accent to Katie with a cultured English accent, from Cancelli with an Italian accent to other characters with Eastern European accents, and from female to male intonations, Marnye is just fabulous. It would be very off-putting and cringing to listen to bad attempts at various international accents but that is never the case in this audiobook."
