The Hound of the Baskervilles (version 4)


Read by David Clarke

(4.8 stars; 348 reviews)

The Hound of the Baskervilles is the third of the four crime novels written by Sir Arthur Conan Doyle featuring the detective Sherlock Holmes. Originally serialised in The Strand Magazine from August 1901 to April 1902, it is set largely on Dartmoor in Devon in England's West Country and tells the story of an attempted murder inspired by the legend of a fearsome, diabolical hound of supernatural origin. Sherlock Holmes and his companion Dr. Watson investigate the case. This was the first appearance of Holmes since his intended death in "The Final Problem", and the success of The Hound of the Baskervilles led to the character's eventual revival. - Summary by Wikipedia (6 hr 10 min)

(5 stars)

David Clarke lends a great deal to the story. the story itself keeps the reader engaged and guessing. I highly recommend this book and all books narrated by Mr. Clarke.

Mr Clarke is superb as always

(5 stars)

I eagerly await more books read by David Clarke... and wish there were more Sherlock stories to read/ listen to, as I've almost run through them all.

Excellent reading

(5 stars)

David Clark is wonderful in every way. The ways he can change his voice to match personalities, even the speed and meter of speech differs and I really think he nails Sherlock better than anyone. Thank you so much for such an excellent and pristine reading of a brilliant story. Bravo.

An Excellent Narate

(5 stars)

Apart from the intruiging book itself, the narrator, David Clarke has done an amazing job to provide the user with the best experience. Good Job.

FIRST RATE

(5 stars)

Only a great mystery could be interesting to read even after having seen it dramatized in the movies; this one passes the test. The reader does a superlative job.

another excellent reading

(5 stars)

Another excellent book and reading. The reading is clear and easy to follow. The use of different voices for the characters is done very well.

(5 stars)

David Clarke is a wonderful reader. I hope he does more. The gothic terror and savage wildness of the Grimpen Mire and the Hound pervade throughout this story, surely one of Sherlock Holmes' finest adventures. Definitely recommended.

It will be good.

I know the narration will be excellent, but this book scared me years ago as a teenager, and I might leave it for now.
