Sherlock Holmes: The Rediscovered Railway Mysteries-John Taylor

This was my first attempt at an audio book. I will be honest right from the get-go in stating that if Benedict Cumberbatch was not the reader, I may not have made this purchase.


I am a huge fan of Sir Arthur Conan Doyle,  and all things Sherlock, so I was willing to see what author John Taylor would do with Sherlock Holmes and Dr. John Watson. 

There is a total of 4 stories included, and although they are not of the caliber of Doyle, I did like them. 

I had the hardest time with the whole audiobook concept. For some reason, I had a very difficult time picturing the story in my mind as I listened. This is never an issue when I am physically reading a book.

Do you listen to audiobooks? I will definitely give more of them a try, but I was certainly expecting a better experience from it. How do you compare it to actually reading a story?
