Audio Book Summary

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)

    This was such a slow-moving story, something I'm sure is due to the fact the narrator sounds like a 6 year old that can only read one word at a time. Unlike most audiobooks, I was unable to get emerged in this book because the voice is too jarring. The book itself was probably, therefore, not shown in a true light.

    I’ve read the book before and loved it. The narrator was awful. Sherlock Holmes should not be read by someone with a southern drawl. She also was just a lousy reader. Slow, jerky and very hard to listen to.

    Good Sherlock Holmes yarn which I always enjoy revisiting as book, film version, radio drama etc. I enjoyed this audiobook despite the American accent which didn't quite suit this quintessentially English story. The narration was fair and only the US pronunciation of "inquiry" jarred (inkwirry) and I became accustomed to her voice and she improved as she read further. For a free audiobook it would be churlish to complain.

    The book was superb. But the work of Sir Arthur Conan Doyle should not be read by a southern United States woman with a southern drawl. They should be read by a narrator with a British accent either male or female.

    I loved the story, I really should have found a version with a different narrator. There wasn't enough inflection or any vocal distinction between characters so at times the flow of conversation was difficult to understand. It also sounded like it was the narrators first time through the material and it was painful to listen to and word by word narration without any rhythm or flow. But the story was amazing enough to keep me listening anyway.

    Now that I have time while I'm hunkered down, hiding from coronavirus, I'm going back and listening to classics I missed reading in high school. This one is well worth the read.
