Great Book, fantastic reading(minus one!)
As others have stated before, this reading was fabulous. With the exception of the reader of Mrs. Stapleton. It was so horrible, I cringed through those parts.
the editing was well done and most of the readers were great. I agree that whoever read for Mrs. Stapleton was very flat and inexpressive but it didn't ruin the story for me.
The readers and the person who painstakingly cut together all of the audio from so many different characters have done a great job. Male voices for male characters would have been good, but I realise this is not always practical. The story itself is pretty good also.
Great Read! Highly Recommend.
This book was fascinating, mysterious, and exciting. All reading performances were excellent, except one: Mrs. Stapleton was terrible! I highly recommend it.
the best of the sherlock books so far I think (ive gone through 3 or 4). u get use to the characters being read by different genders. The mystery isnt so great, but the putting together of it all makes it enjoyable to go through even when u have it solved.
The Hound of the Baskervilles
An excellently read story. Full of action and intrigue. All characters were well suited to there parts eith the exception of Mrs. Stapleton (very flat and unexpressive).
The Adventures of Watson
A damn fine story. The mystery and suspense were definitely entertaining. The reading performances were excellent, except one. Mrs. Stapleton was AWFUL! (hence 4 1/2 instead of 5)
This is by far the best audio I've ever heard. the woman had great literature skills and the audience can follow through with ease. Different voices for each character were very helpful and probably the best choice for an audiobook.
