A masterpiece

I enjoy Shelock Holmes, and appreciate the role AC Doyle had in developing the genre. Not all the mysteries are well developed though. This one is. It's a masterpiece. The narration is outstanding. One of the best audiobooks I've had.

Excellent narrator for a fantastic story!

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

I have read the Hound of the Baskervilles and at the time found some parts of it a little dragging, but when hearing it read out to me it's very different. I enjoyed the audio book very much!

What did you like best about this story?

The narrator! David Timson had a great range of voices and it's easy to differentiate between the characters based on his voice alone. The American accent made me chuckle, but the other character's voices more than made up for it!

Which character – as performed by David Timson – was your favorite?

Watson and Holmes were the best of all the characters.

Any additional comments?

An awesome book! Highly recommended for both the narrator and the story!

Fantastic

I personally love Naxos audio books. The blend of classical music and superb quality narration makes them well worth trying and in the case of these David Timson recordings of the Holmes canon they are an essential purchase for all Sherlockians. Hounds has always been my favourite Holmes story and so I'm sure it's no surprise to you to discover that this is my favourite of the Timson recordings. Special mention must also be given to the Naxos production team who have chosen pieces of classical music that suitably capture the story and the desolation of the Moors. This is an audiobook though and the music is simply just to usher new chapters in or signal the end of chapters.
