It is strange to consider that, although The Hound Of The Baskervilles is Conan Doyle's most popular novel, his hero is absent for much of the time. Notice how he sets up an atmosphere of supernatural horror right from the start through Dr Mortimer's reading of the ancient curse, and how he then presents as assortment of bizarre clues - in particular, the riddle of the missing boots - which Holmes will have to unravel.

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Marwa | 2/2/2014

    " An amusing/thrilling read. Unfortunately, to me it doesn't match up to other Sherlock Holmes mystery cases. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Andalee | 1/23/2014

    " I would say this ties with Valley of Fear and A study in Scarlet as my favorites. I cannot pick between the three because they are all amazing. "

    " I listend to this book while doing stuff around my apartment and it was a nice book for that. The story might not be the most engaging, but listening to it while doing something with my hands was a nice experience. "

    " This is often cited as the best of the Holmes novels, if not the best of all the stories. It definitely lives up to those expectations. A complex plot that evokes intrigue and suspense. The only clear suspect is a supernatural demonic hound. It all wraps up with a logical explanation at the end. My only complaints were that it gets a bit dry in some of the middle chapters and the last chapter might explain things too thoroughly, but they are minor complaints and are necessary to plot. I think my favorite thing about this novel were the moody gripping descriptions of the moor and surrounding areas. Doyle provides everything with a haunted majesty that makes it easy to be swept up in. All said, I highly recommend this for anyone who wants a sample of Sherlock Holmes at his finest, "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Niklas Jönsson | 12/30/2013

    " I have read this book before (granted it was when I was a kid) and seen a few of the film versions and I still found myself confounded by the mystery from time to time. That is good writing. "

    " I didn't like this book that much, I thought it was very dry. The only thing I liked about this book was the fact that it was very hard to predict and was very surprising. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Chaitanya | 12/28/2011

    " This is one of the novels that would steal your time as can't wait to finish it once you start reading it.Its worth it but would be more of a childish novel. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Dalia Woodliff | 12/28/2011

    " Even though I've read it 3 times and seen the movie - this is such a great read within Watson's perspective. Sherlock is as clever as ever "

    " Much better than A Study in Scarlet and The Sign of Four. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Sarah Jane | 7/28/2011

    " 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! "

    Although sometimes I wish that Holmes would be a TOUCH nicer to Watson? "

About the Author
Author Arthur Conan Doyle

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.
