    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 Sher...

    "Now is the dramatic moment of fate, Watson, when you hear a step upon the stairs which is walking into your life, and you know not whether for good or ill." What makes The Hound of Baskervilles not only the best Holmes novel I?ve read so far, but also the definitive gothic murder...

    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 t...

    The ultimate tale of the ultimate Victorian hero, The Hound of the Baskervilles is a true masterpiece of the mystery genre, and quite possibly remains the finest mystery novel ever produced -- even if its first appearance was serialized in Strand Magazine. Sir Arthur Conan Doyle's ...

    _The Hound of the Baskervilles_ is probably one of the more famous cases of Sherlock Holmes and is also one of only four novel-length treatments of the cases of the great detective. It?s a solid story and is perhaps primarily of interest in the apparently supernatural element which l...

    Highly enjoyable! The Hound of the Baskervilles leans more towards horror than the usual Sherlock crime-solving mystery, but Arthur Conan Doyle worked his hero into this genre with the easy of slipping on a finger-print hiding glove. Since private investigator Sherlock Holmes' offi...

    Short yet full-packed with action. I am halfway with my quest to read the whole Sherlock Holmes canon and I've read two of his earlier novels and around 30 of his short stories but I think this novel is just the best so far. What make this different and better are the following: (1)...

    ?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 ...

    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...

    In the sometimes cold, wet, windy region of southern England called Devonshire, where the land gradually disappears and the stormy sea can be seen, there was a legend of a demonic hound that haunted the Baskerville family through the centuries, beginning in 1647. Hugo Baskerville, a to...

    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...

    I am a big fan of any writer who is capable of creating powerful and memorable characters in literature. And Sir Arthur Conan Doyle is no exception. His work on other books may also be quality but it is Sherlock Holmes who will always be remembered. And for good reason. The man is br...

    I'd been toying with the idea of reading books in French. I can understand the language - but as for speaking it, well here's another ball game. I read part of this edition in my class when I was 13 years old. I read when the hound was racing towards its would be victim. Would be vi...

    My first audio book finished, and what a great adventure it was! I suppose it was guaranteed to be good with Stephen Fry narrating. Not only was this my first audio book, but also my first Sherlock Holmes one, and indeed listening to this got me into the Sherlock Holmes show so now I a...

    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...

    ?Presume nothing? This is one of Conan Doyle's best story, mixing mystery with eeriness. This is achieved from both setting, the moor, and writing style, Victorian, both very much in the Gothic. The Hound of the Baskerville also presents a better structure than the previous two...

    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 ...

    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, set 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 st...

    This always shocks people, but I live under a rock and have never really had much to do with Sherlock Holmes. I've never watched it on television, never really read Doyle's works on the character or anything else along those lines. Finally I got around to reading The Hound of the Baske...

    It is difficult to think of many literary characters who have had anything like the huge impact that Sherlock Holmes has had - not just in literary terms, but culturally as well. The legend that is Sherlock Holmes goes way beyond the world of the written word - and for good reason too;...
