Like Sherlock Holmes, Stephen Fry, Bargains? Buy it! -
I was prompted to write this review after seeing someone had given this collection 1 star! I now understand why, the suggestion that most post 2001 cars can play MP3 CD's is laughable, post 2011 cars would be closer. I have a 2008 car which can't, but because they are data files I have copied to an old phone and link to my car with Bluetooth, works great.
As for the collection, it is clear, excellently read by Stephen Fry and it's Sherlock Holmes. If you like these stories you will love this. And like the other MP3 collections, is an absolute bargain, it's £17 for seven books and 73 HOURS OF AUDIO! 73 HOURS! That's the same as about 73 CDs...how much would you pay for an audio book CD? £5? So this should cost you £300+.
Seriously, if you are even thinking about buying this then you should.
Sherlock Holmes MP3 CD Collection -
This collection does not work on car CD players from 2001. They wouldn't play on my husband's 2008 BMV! I reported this to Book People and am really surprised that they haven't updated the website! I bought this as a gift and was upset that the information given on the website was so inaccurate.
Thanks for the review

Bought for Christmas -
I have bought these for my 11-year-old daughter for Christmas. She loves Sherlock Holmes and this has a nice selection of his stories. Stephen Fry always does a fantastic job of narrating as well.
