THE HOUND OF THE BASKERVILLES

by | Read by Tony Britton

Classics • 3 hrs. • Abridged • © 1902

The most atmospheric and suspenseful of the Sherlock Holmes novels concerns a ghastly fire-breathing canine that roams the Baskerville moors and threatens the Canadian-born Baskerville heir. In imitation of Basil Rathbone and Nigel Bruce, Tony Britton gives Holmes a sharp, masterful voice and makes Watson a bit of a fool, a fool more than thirty years older than his roommate. The Canadian has a slight, intermittent Southern twang. Otherwise, this is satisfactory but is by no means the best of the many audio renditions on the market.
