wonderful

(5 Sterne)

I had the misfortune/just plain stupidity to listen to it at night...I certainly regretted that!...and I think that all in all it was wonderful. Miss Stapleton definitely damaged the audiobook, you know, ruined the charm? However, I think that Sherlock more than made up for this. I wouldn't have it replaced by a guy for the world!!! She is SUCH a nice, mellow, smooth and altogether pleasant reader to listen to, I could listen to her all day!

An excellent listen

(5 Sterne)

I was very pleasantly surprised that the main character is read by Cori Samual, who has one of the loveliest voices that I have ever heard, but the rest of the readers were extraordinary as well. Very well done you guys thank you it was a very pleasant listen.

must read!

(5 Sterne)

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.

Well done

(4,5 Sterne)

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.

Dopeskiis!

(5 Sterne)

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.

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.

Great Book, fantastic reading(minus one!)

(3,5 Sterne)

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 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).
