The Hound of the Baskervilles

Gelesen von Laurie Anne Walden

(4,629 Sterne; 954 Bewertungen)

What really killed Sir Charles Baskerville? Is his nephew, Sir Henry, in danger from the legendary family curse, a gigantic black hound? Sherlock Holmes and Dr. Watson are on the case in this classic mystery, set on lonely Dartmoor in Devonshire. Neolithic ruins, a perilous quagmire, eerie sounds in the night, and (of course) fog all add to the fun, with an escaped convict thrown in for good measure. (Summary by Laurie Anne Walden) (5 hr 52 min)

Hound of Baskervilles

(5 Sterne)

Reader has performed admirably. She was able to convey the story in a manner that remained easy to listen to & entertaining.

Excellent reading only missing character voices

(4 Sterne)

This was my 3rd audio book and the first read by a woman. I thought the reader read at a brisk pace that was perfect. The story is great and not too long. I gave 4 stars and not five as the other two readers had done character voices when reading which I thought was outstanding

Great book and well read

(4 Sterne)

Thanks to librivox for the opportunity to listen to many books for free and big thanks to reader, she's a good in tone of reading, impressions of situation and clear American accent. Well done and keep up the good works

Great story enthusiastically read

(5 Sterne)

Among Conan Doyle's finest works. Narrator reads very well, briskly and clearly with her American accent. Narration actually grew on me as the story progressed. Unlike some Librivox readers she obviously knows and understands the book and intones appropriately.

a wonderful book and beautifuly read!!

(5 Sterne)

i have come to love all the works of Sir Arthur Conan Doyle. and more especially All the adventures of Sherlock Holmes

The best Holmes novel

(5 Sterne)

In my opinion the best Holmes novel. Beautifully read for librivox.

Surprisingly good

(4 Sterne)

Not my normal kind of book, but I decided to give it a try and I’m glad I did as I found it really interesting throughout. The narration is done with a southern American drawl, I think, and I have to say that I found it quite appealing! Well worth a listen, even if you are not sure whether it is your sort of thing!

The Hound of the Baskervilles

(5 Sterne)

My favorite Sherlock Holmes story read by one of my favorite librivox readers. She is gifted in her ability to keep each character distinct throughout—whether male or female—while consistently speaking in her very feminine voice. This she does in all the books she has read for librivox: this I know, because I have listened to them all multiple times.
