My Grandpa Cannon loved this story, and he often told of a time when he went to see a "picture show" about the Hound of the Baskervilles. "It scared the willies out of me," he said, and then he and his friend had to part ways as my grandpa rode his bicycle home in the dark.
He was thinking about t...

4.5 stars. Sherlock Holmes is at his inscrutable and logical best, Dr. Watson is his devoted self and manages to actually be helpful, and the mystery is a solid one, with a gothic feel to it. And the Baskerville Hound is truly creepy.
Holmes and Watson are visited one morning by a Dr. Mortimer, wh...

Sadly I don't remember much about this one, except for the fact that the setting is very important and that it is an intense mystery. I read it for school three years ago. Crazy I don't even remember fragments of the story because I recall we did a long and mentally painful paper on it.

It's hard to believe that I've never read Doyle's most famous Sherlock Holmes tale until now. I don't even know why I've been putting this off, the short stories that I've read about the well-known detective and his sidekick Dr Watson were pretty good but this little novel has remained on my "to...

I think this is my favorite Arthur Conan Doyle story. What a combination; you have a mystery, a horror story with a demon like wolfhound, with the setting on a dark English moor. I've never seen an English moor but I've experienced them through the great books I've read. I've imagined Catherine s...

This story is an institution from my childhood. I first heard it as a child; my mother told it to me as a bedtime story (yes, my mom is like that). I was creeped out totally - and continued to be so while I read the story in umpteen plagiarised translations (where the hound was changed to all kin...

“Really, Watson, you excel yourself,” said Holmes, pushing back his chair and lighting a cigarette. "I am bound to say that in all the accounts which you have been so good as to give of my own small achievements you have habitually underrated your own abilities. It may be that you are not yoursel...

I love Sherlock Holmes. I love his name, I love his clothes...I just love his style. Reading The Hound of the Baskervilles...I felt like I was reading the first detective novel ever written. Doyle defined the genre--he was the first and the best.
My nine-year-old daughter loves Sherlock Holmes. Sh...
