Publisher's Summary

Sir Charles Baskerville is dead. His body was discovered on the grounds of his Devonshire estate, face frozen in fright, not far from the footprints of a large beast. The cause of death has been determined to be a heart attack, but family legend tells another tale, and Detective Sherlock Holmes is determined to uncover the truth.

So whodunit on the foggy moors of Baskerville Hall? In one of literature's greatest original page-turners, the answer is a classic.

Hound of Baskervilles

Very enjoyable to listen to while walking around the track, Arthur Conan Doyle was adept a describing the characters and the setting. There is the supernatural element which adds to the mystery. Is the family curse real or just superstitious gossip of the neighborhood? Then there is the escaped convict subplot.

Great narration of a fantastic story!

I always love Simon Vance as a narrator. He has a very pleasant voice and does a good job at distinguishing between characters. However, there was a single chapter where he seemed to forget that Sir Henry didn’t have an English accent - it threw me off while listening. Otherwise, though, a very enjoyable listen. I hadn’t revisited this story in a very long time and I’m glad I decided to listen to it this time around!

Sherlock Holmes

Excellent narration. I have recommended this story many times. It is so important to have good voices behind the story.

Unfortunate

I normally like Simon Vance as a narrator, but this certainly was an exception on this book. It is a wonderful book that was ruined by a horrible, dry, boring narrator.
