For generations, the legend has been passed down: a satanic tale of a gigantic hell-hound, a devil incarnate who stalks the wastes of Dartmoor wreaking a blooding and terrible vengeance on the Baskerville family.

What turns out to be one of the most interesting cases of the great detective's career begins when a country doctor visits Holmes and Watson in London. He brings with him the legend of the hound and news of the sudden death of Sir Charles Baskerville. Sir Charles' heir, Henry, is arriving from America and the doctor is afraid for the young man's life. Holmes despatches Dr Watson to accompany them back to the dark and somber estate in the Devon moor.

With peril at every turn and a murderous escaped convict at large, the mystery depends. Is the ancient legend true, or is the hideous creature merely a part of a sinister conspiracy whose origins are all too diabolically human? Download and start listening now!

    " As it being the first Conan Doyle that I have read, I thought it was superb. I enjoy reading the old victorian language purely for the versatility of the words that the authors from this time use- as an english nerd, when reading literature classics, I always have a dictionary at hand! I thought the plot was brilliantly written, and I love a plot that can keep you guessing the answer to the "whodunnit?" question until it's finally revealed- an author that can keep you on your toes and have you thinking like the main detective himself is a remarkable talent to have. I think all that have time on their hands should definitely give this book a go, and i'm sure all will come to the same conclusion as me that it is so rightly so, a classic. "

    " Wow what a great read! This was the first sherlock holmes story I have read and now I see what the fuss is all about. Doyle is an amazing writer and I can't wait to read all the other holmes stories. "

    " Despite having read before and knew the story I read again only a few months ago. Surely this is a sign of a good book. The joy of the book are the characters and of course Sherlock Holmes, one of the greatest characters of all time. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Mloy | 9/1/2013

    " Like many of Sherlock Holmes adventures this one is as baffling and as thrilling as you come to expect from the brilliant mind of Sir Arthur Conan Doyle. "

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

    " I downloaded this, along with the audio book, from Project Gutenberg. The quality was quite good! It is an entertaining story, with mostly Watson instead of Holmes. Then I saw the play, which was a comedy, quite different than the original book although the plot is pretty much the same. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Sarah Jane | 12/8/2008

    " Oh how I love Sherlock Holmes! Sir Arthur Conan Doyle creates such clear images and feelings with his words. The Hound of the Baskervilles was superbly suspenseful and creepy. I couldn't put it down. My only complaint is that there wasn't enough Sherlock. Still, brilliant story! "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Lily | 10/26/2008

    " Such a riveting audio book. I listened to it while cooking up an hours-long recipe for lasagna, and when the lasagna was finally assembled and the book wasn't finished, I made dessert (even though it was 1am) because I couldn't stop listening. Sherlock Holmes is my hero. "

About the Author

Sir Arthur Conan Doyle (1859–1930) was born of Irish parentage in Scotland. He studied medicine at the University of Edinburgh, but he also had a passion for storytelling. His first book introduced that prototype of the modern detective in fiction, Sherlock Holmes. Despite the immense popularity Holmes gained throughout the world, Doyle was not overly fond of the character and preferred to write other stories. Eventually popular demand won out and he continued to satisfy readers with the adventures of the legendary sleuth. He also wrote historical romances and made two essays into pseudoscientific fantasy: The Lost World and The Poison Belt.
