批評家のレビュー

"The most consistent of all series in terms of language control, length, and quality of storytelling." (David R. Hill, ELT Journal Review)

あらすじ・解説

Adapted from the Arthur Conan Doyle story "Silver Blaze".... Horseracing is the sport of kings, perhaps because racehorses are very expensive animals. But when they win races, they can make a lot of money too - money for the owners, for the trainers, and for the people who put bets on them to win.

Silver Blaze is a young horse, but already the winner of many races. One night he disappears from his stables, and someone kills his trainer. The police want the killer, and the owner wants his horse, but they can’t find them. So what do they do? They write to 221B Baker Street, London, of course - to ask for the help of the great detective Sherlock Holmes.

One little known Sherlock's tale by A, Conan Doyle

First the technical features: perfectly audible (a remarkable intonation) but somewhat slow due to, at times, a slow speech with many pauses.
I'm not an expert on AC Doyle's works but this tale surprised me favorably (I shouldn't tell the basic lines lest the spell is broken). It is a short story, but a smart one, and so can be enjoyed with little time devoted to it, at least in the adapted version. There must be reminded a memorable line of the tale: "The strange thing is that the dog didn't bark". I heard that quoted out of the context, but one must look at/ listen to that in the context to understand its meaning!

Classically written story well adapted

Ponderous performance, fine for Holmes, tedious for all characters despite different accents. Just seemed out of place
