Publisher's Summary

Could the sudden death of Sir Charles Baskerville have been caused by the gigantic ghostly hound which is said to have haunted his family for generations? Arch-rationalist Sherlock Holmes characteristically dismisses the theory as nonsense. Claiming to be immersed in another case, he sends Watson to Devon to protect the Baskerville heir and to observe the suspects at close hand.

Could It Get Any Better?

Nope, probably not! After listening to a dramatized version, I decided I needed to revisit the genuine Conan Doyle article.

Dated it may be, and it may have become something of a cliche, but "The Hound" still resonates. It's a great, suspenseful yarn and makes for a wonderful short listen - especially with the hallowed tones of Derek Jacobi.

I say go for it!

Have always loved this story and Derek Jacobi brings it to life beautifully! He's AMAZING, I will definitely look for more from him.

Love it!

You know Sherlock Holmes. You've seen adaptations on TV, you know his stories. But, listening/reading the books is just wonderful. By reading, you gain a deeper understanding of Holmes, of Watson, of Victorian England and Derek Jacobi is an amazing narrator. He is perfect for the job. So even though you may be familiar with the stories, have a listen and instead of being preoccupied with 'who done it' (cos you probably know already), enjoy the journey and allow Holmes to lead you there in his own unique way.

Classic Book and brilliant Narrator

I have listened and enjoyed a few of Sherlock Holmes now and allthough you have a vague memory of the various stories Derek Jacobi transforms them he is brilliant! I readly look for his narration before buying the book.

Definitely worth the read.

As a story originally published in 1902 I was amazed to find how easy a read it was and really enjoyed it.

I have always loved the character of Sherlock Holmes though had yet to read any of the original work. I think I was afraid that I may find myself not like the works so I put it off. But alas I found the writing to be rather poetic and find myself wanting to read more Adventures of Sherlock Holmes.
