The Hound Mystery

Would you consider the audio edition of The Hound of the Baskervilles to be better than the print version?

It all depends on your circumstances. It is more convenient for me to listen to it.

Any additional comments?

This book is a classic Holmes books. Beautifully written and executed.

A wonderful mystery of its time

Well-constructed and with rich characters. Both Holmes and Watson at their best. Pether's narration leaves much to be desired though. Wooden, almost monotonous, with no differentiation in voicing. And he mispronounced a few words. Overall, worth bearing with the narration to read this classic mystery.

Loved the narration

I loved the narration and the story is a classic for a reason. I should have read it or listened to it way sooner.

Great book, annoying narration.

I love this book, and the narration - an odd mix of British and Singaporean - frankly gets in the way. It’s a shame, with differently pronounced common English words stopping the flow of the narration entirely. Really odd, unique and ultimately pointlessly bad choice by Audible. The book is nevertheless tremendous, a true classic.

Excellent narration

The best reading of Hound of the Baskervilles I have heard. Everyone should buy a copy for themselves. It was marvelous waiting out the blackout from the latest storm.

Held my attention, easy to follow.

Great story. I listened in one sitting during a drive. Narrator was very clear, paced well, but voice of characters simular to each other.

A brilliant classic detective story

If you could sum up The Hound of the Baskervilles in three words, what would they be?

Unpredictable, mysterious, gothic

Which scene did you most enjoy?

The most memorable scene for me is Dr Watsons discovery of the cave in the moors.....

Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

Absolutely. It's a page turner

Any additional comments?

It's included on the 1001 book list and was a re read for me. Thoroughly recommended.

Teethy.

Conan D certainly gets to the teeth of the mystery with the most fictional team ever.

Classic old fashioned tale with boring narration

I struggled to listen to this audiobook even though it was only six hours long as the narrator was sinfully boring. His accent was not reflective of a masterful Conan Doyle story and he made no effort to diffentiate between the characters. It ended up giving me a headache. The story itself though, if animated, is still a classic.
