A full-cast audio dramatization of one of Sherlock Holmes' best known stories.

Generations ago, a hound of hell tore out the throat of devilish Hugo Baskerville on the moonlit moor. Poor, accursed Baskerville Hall now has another mysterious death: that of Sir Charles Baskerville. Could the culprit somehow be mixed up with secretive servant Barrymore, history-obsessed Dr. Frankland, butterfly-chasing Stapleton, or Selden, the Notting Hill murderer at large? Someone's been signaling with candles from the mansion's windows. Nor can supernatural forces be ruled out. Can Dr. Watson - left alone by Sherlock Holmes to sleuth in fear for much of the novel - save the next Baskerville, Sir Henry, from the hound's fangs?

    " I really enjoyed the book. Very interesting and clever. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Lula | 2/17/2014

    " This book is another one that should be read all the time. It's a story of wich you just can't get tired, and deserves every minte spent with it. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Natalie | 2/16/2014

    " This is one of those stories I have heard a lot about, and seen bits of adaptations on TV, but never read the original. I enjoyed it quite a lot - it's definitely my favourite of the longer Sherlock Holmes stories I've read so far. I found a couple of the clues a little bit contrived (a piece of a letter just happens to escape being burned in the fire, leaving a vital clue; a certain person just HAPPENS to bear a striking resemblance to a Baskeville ancestor). But the book is genuinely creepy, and I honestly didn't know how it was going to end. "

    " Read it very quickly before watching the latest episode of Sherlock on PBS and was not disappointed. Conan Doyle is at his best in the longer novels, having more room to flesh out the characters. Makes me want to travel to England so I can see what exactly a moor is! I have already started the next Sherlock book even though I was going to take a break, they are very addictive! "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Peter Böyd | 2/4/2014

    " Easily my favourite crime fiction novel of all time. First read it as a school boy and have read it numerous times since "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Bigyellowtaxi1 | 1/28/2014

    " There's a reason why Sherlock Holmes books are classics. Every detective story since owes something to the series, Holmes defined the genre. What's great about this one is that we're not misled at any point, no false trails are laid out for the unsuspecting reader the stumble down and the solution is not fantastic at all. We're like Watson, we know Holmes' methods, we've seen him in action countless times, we ought to be able to solve the mystery. But despite that we still need Sherlock Holmes to swoop in and provide us with a solution. It's a special kind of mystery that gives you every advantage but still remains impossible. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Savannah | 1/17/2014

    " Not that bad of a book. I don't really have much to say about it though. Most of the book was pretty sluggish, then it finally started to pick up again. Three stars, nothing to write home about. Maybe if I wasn't reading it for school, I would like it better. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Adithya | 1/10/2014

    " ingenious, exciting and doesn't drag on a bit "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Yvonne | 12/27/2013

    " How did I get to be this old without reading Sherlock Holmes?! These books are amazing, and I'm so glad to have discovered them. Onward! "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Lena | 12/25/2013

    " Less than 24 hours to go until the new episode and I'll finish this one in a breeze. Easily some of the best storytelling and mystery-writing ever. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Marwa | 12/21/2013

    " An amusing/thrilling read. Unfortunately, to me it doesn't match up to other Sherlock Holmes mystery cases. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Jonathan Ence | 9/28/2013

    " A well written classic detective story. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Crystal | 8/10/2013

    " While I enjoyed reading it, I don't think this particular mystery was as interesting as some of his others. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Suzanne | 4/8/2013

    " Spine tingling, real "edge of your seat" stuff. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Letty | 11/21/2012

    " Unforgettable. Should and will remain a classic forever. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Alf | 8/2/2012

    " I'm a big fan of the Sherlock character and I had a great time reading this but I just can't say it was a good book. The hound might stir fright in some, making the reading more exciting, but not me. Honestly, I enjoy modern-day adaptations of Sherlock to the original novels. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Chaitanya | 7/28/2011

    " This is one of the novels that would steal your time as can't wait to finish it once you start reading it.Its worth it but would be more of a childish novel. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Vanesa | 6/28/2011

    " This is definitely one of m favorite mystery books rather one of my favorite in any genre. It is indeed a page turner tale, my kudos to sir conan doyle. Filled with mystic, suspense and charm-- thanks to the duo Sherlock Holmes and Dr. Watson. Not a dull momment. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Kory | 6/13/2011

    " Great book. Even in the 21st century! Timeless classic. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Deborah Court | 3/11/2011

    " Best book ever written - my favorite of them all. The atmosphere of the mysterious moor grabs me every time I read it, the secrets, the horror! I have a copy on my bedside table and a second on my Kindle to carry wherever I go. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Karl Gunnar | 2/12/2011

    " This edition, with notes and an introduction by Christopher Frayling, is up there with the annotated editions by Baring-Gould and Klinger.. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Abdus | 1/21/2011

    " intense suspense!....Sherlock Holmes' act of locking himself up in his studyroom...smoking for hours to fill up his room with smoke as to get a vivid picture of the alley gave me a weird feeling...:P "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Tracy Fenwick | 1/1/2011

    " I initially struggled with the 'old English' in this book, however after persevering I enjoyed this book. It's the blueprint for several crime/mystery books that are written today. Although after saying this I don't think I would read another one. I'll stick the modern day authors!! "
