Gelesen von David Clarke

(4,868 Sterne; 1327 Bewertungen)

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)

The Hound of the Baskervilles (version 4 )

(5 Sterne)

I enjoy this reader. I highly recommend looking for his other readings. I have always loved Sherlock Holmes and this version made me want to find more read by this reader.

One of his best.

(5 Sterne)

As usual David Clark makes the mystery come alive and keeps it exciting throughout. We are so fortunate to have him as a reader.. Enjoyable although very long. Very exciting at the end.

Great characters, story & narrator

(5 Sterne)

It’s truly no wonder why people of the time fell in love with Sherlock Holmes and his friend Dr. Watson. Reading their stories in the order Doyle wrote them, I have really come to care for them and laugh at their quirks and comfortable back and forths. Also, Baskerville must have felt like the equivalent of an action movie for the time. David Clarke is a fantastic narrator and I rarely need the description to understand who was saying what. Thank you and keep up the amazing work!

What a fantastic tale!!

(5 Sterne)

This is the first Sherlock Holmes story I've had the pleasure to enjoy (I haven't even seen the movies, and 1 episode w/ Bunnyknees Cucumberstack). David Clarke is a great reader! I'd heard him read another book, and he is now one of those readers I'll be keeping an eye out for. Thank you, LibriVox , and thank you to Mr. Clarke as well! I'm off to find another book to hear!

Bravo from Borneo

(5 Sterne)

Bravo! Bravo! Finally, this well known and renowned book is no longer a mystery, and it certainly did not disappoint. What makes ACD such a brilliant writer is his ability to describe in such perfect detail even the most prosaic of situations. As always, Chapeau to David Clarke who is such a very accomplished narrator and brings each character to life. So, now just one more novel to go; wonderful!

Wonderful read!

(5 Sterne)

This version is a very well done read of Arthur Conan Doyle's well known work The Hound of the Baskerville's. Never a dull moment, and always capturing the attention of the listener, Mr. Clark's readings of The many works by Sir Arthur Conan Doyle are the best I've heard yet. Many thanks.

superb!

(5 Sterne)

The Hound of the Baskervilles is told more from Dr. Watson’s perspective than many of the other stories about Sherlock Holmes. This makes it a mystery that the listener can step into and try to figure out. David Clark does a wonderful job at reading. He definitely makes the story come alive.

Bad for insomnia!

(5 Sterne)

I use libravox to help me get to sleep as the poor quality recordings require such concentration that it really helps me to drift off...... However, this doesn't work for David Clarkes recordings as I end up staying up all night listening to the whole book!
