    One thought on “The Lost Adventures of Sherlock Holmes”

    1. There never has been anything quite like old-time radio in America. It was pure magic. It was adventure and drama, mystery and suspense, drifting through the night air into homes lit only by the glow of a radio dial. Families gathered around the radio, carried away by their imaginations.Author Ken Greenwald was one of those listeners, and one of his favorite shows growing up was Sherlock Holmes. For most of us, Basil Rathbone and Nigel Bruce will always be Holmes and Watson. The films and radio [...]

    2. The book was well written. The major author used the scripts from radio plays, adding the explanatory and background information needed to make the transition from play to story. It was certainly worth reading if you are a Sherlock fan.

    3. A most peculiar oddity; this volume contains prose adaptations of several radio dramas broadcast as part of the "New Adventures of Sherlock Holmes" radio series that ran on MBS and starred Basil Rathbone and Nigel Bruce. If you already listened to the radio series, it is hard not reading this without hearing both Bruce and Rathbone in your head; it is also hard understanding why you would read this when one can, in this glorious day and age, readily find the original broadcasts and enjoy those. [...]

    4. THE LOST AD VENTURES OF SHERLOCK HOLMES. Based on the Original Radio Plays by Denis Green and Anthony Boucher. (1989). Ken Greenwald. ***. Greenwald tells the story, in his introduction, of when he was a kid in the 1940s, rushing home from school to listen to the various serials that were the feature of radio dramas of the time. One of his favorites featured the adventures of Sherlock Holmes, featuring Basil Rathbone and Nigel Bruce. Much later, when Greenwald was working with a group that attem [...]

    5. In his introduction to the book, Mr. Greenwald talks about the inherent difficulty of adapting radio plays into the short story form, what with having to fill in all the gaps and, y'know, actually describe things. And, well, let's just say that his work here a marvellous job of proving the point that, yes, it's a very very difficult thing to do indeed. Perhaps in the hands of a superior writer it could've worked, but Greenwald's adaptations are rather horridly flat, to be perfectly honest. If yo [...]

    6. Based on some original radio broadcasts from the 1940s, then redone as short stories.Plus: Loved the story of the first meeting of Moriarty and Sherlock Holmes. All the stories are loosely based on ones from the Holmes canon. For instance, the first story is about the daughter of Irene Adler.Minus: I don't think they always got Holmes quite right. He's a little too friendly, a little too quick to laugh. He's brilliant enough, and Watson seems pretty accurate. But Holmes is a little too approacha [...]

    7. A collection of Sherlock Holmes stories originally written by Denis Green and Anthony Boucher as radio scripts for shows aired in the 1940s starring Basil Rathbone and Nigel Bruce. This group of scripts was lost for some time, and finally discovered by 221 "A" Baker Street Associates. After ;this discovery, author Ken Greenwald took the scripts and wrote them in short story form. The result is a very entertaining collection that extends the legacy of Sherlock Holmes tales for the reader.

    8. If you begin reading this book hoping to experience adventures in the style of Sir Arthur Conan Doyle, you will be sadly disappointed. However, if you have watched and loved Basil Rathbone's Sherlock Holmes movies (as I have) and are prepared to be reunited with him and his sidekick Nigel Bruce, then these stories will be a delight.

    9. These are the novelized version of screen plays written by Denis Green And Anthony Boucher( of science fiction fame). I have discovered two sites to listen to old time radio dramas : radiolovers and antioch radio. If you love the old dramas, these are the places to go.

    10. Personally I loved it . Good stories and fact that Watson is actually equal footing with Holmes. I enjoyed the stories greatly and if you don't care about radio stories then it's great .

    11. Short stories based on the original radio dramas of the 1940's starring Basil Rathbone and Nigel Bruce.

    12. The original radio adventures might have been birlliant, but this rendition of them doesn't fit the bill and is a dumbing down of the characters
