Sherlock Holmes with sound effects

I’ve just started reading Sherlock Holmes: The Adventure of the Speckled Band which is the UK’s first  ebook with its own sound track, published by Booktrack a couple of weeks ago.  This Telegraph article promises driving rain, thunderclaps and blood-curdling screams, so I’m not sure how I’m going to read it on the train, or in bed, which is where I do most of my reading!  Better get my head phones out.

  1. Although I’m a great proponent of e-books, I must say that if I wanted a soundtrack I would listen to a radio dramatisation or see a film. I read because I want a totally interior experience that stimulates my own imagination, not one that replicates the other media that are always present in our lives.
