The Hound of the Baskervilles by Arthur Conan Doyle Book Summary

The terrible spectacle of the beast, the fog of the moor, the discovery of a body, this classic horror story pits detective against dog. When Sir Charles Baskerville is found dead on the wild Devon moorland with the footprints of a giant hound nearby, the blame is placed on a family curse. It is left to Sherlock Holmes and Doctor Watson to solve the mystery of the legend of the phantom hound before Sir Charles' heir comes to an equally gruesome end.

The Hound of the Baskervilles (Arthur Conan Doyle) Book Reviews

The Hounds of the BaskervillesGreat read, over a hundred years and it's still spellbinding!.Score: 5/5

ReviewI have longed to learn more of the writings of Sir Doyle after seeing movies if his created characters over the years. This is the second book of his writings I have consumed. I must say, I was rather pleased by those two books. I love the 19th century backdrop and style of language. I am usually put off by not understanding the choice of words of older writings, but in this book I was not and enjoyed the older style of words. I would recommend Sir Doyle's works and especially 'The Hound of the Baskerville'..Score: 5/5

Sherlock at his bestThe length of the novella lends itself to the story. The gloomy and oppressively evil mood of the moor is masterfully rendered. Great characters and pacing. Wonderful..Score: 5/5

The Hound of the BaskervillesThis novel, by Sir Arthur Conan Doyle, is very cleverly written and quite engaging in that the reader wants to know how Holmes will solve the case. However, the case itself is fairly predictable; I had figured out most everything from the clues before the plot revealed the developments. For the predictability, I deducted a star. If you haven't read a Sherlock Holmes mystery, this one is the one to read..Score: 4/5

Very Good for a ClassicThis book is a classic, no doubt. it definitely has the potential to join War & Peace, Don Quixote, and Robinson Crusoe as one of the top stories of all-time. It honestly kept me interested the whole way through, which I find rare for lots of classics, and had a very possible to solve, interesting mystery tied to its fantastic plot and intense action scenes. I had to read it for school, and it was probably one of the best school-assigned books I have ever read..Score: 4/5

One to readI loved the whole story, well written and very atmospheric throughout. I have read the book now and watched the films from Basil Rathbone to Benedict Cumberbatch. All of them had a different twist on the character of Holmes but the main plot of the story remains the same. The only thing I didn’t like about the book was the summary of the whole case at the end. After reading the book, I fully understood why certain things happened the way they had. Apart from that, very enjoyable and will certainly be reading more of Sherlocks exploits..Score: 5/5
