I looked at the ground where Sir Charles had walked. There were footprints on the ground. They were not the footprints of a man. They were the footprints of a giant hound.

Sherlock Holmes and Dr Watson travel to Dartmoor to investigate the strange death of Sir Charles Baskerville. Is there really a curse on the family? And is there really a huge dog living on the moor, destroying the Baskervilles one by one?

    " I really did not think I would like it in the slightest, however we were studying it in English and so I had to read it, to start with I read it very half heartedly and then as the story began to unfold I was hooked. I enjoyed every page and could not put it down. A true timeless classic which will never date. "

    " I thought that this book was well written and expertly put together. For the most part, it was exciting and riveting but there were some parts in the book where I began to do the head bob (or maybe it was just my lack of sleep). I liked this book for the for the reason of "other worldly" thrill. The mystery of course is that a hell hound is cursing the Baskervilles family, which interested me enough to read it. The length of the book is about a 120 page medium sized book so if you want a short, stimulating book this is the right choice. However, there is a downside. Mr. Sherlock Holmes only appears minimally in the story, which means that most of it is "Watson and The Hound of the Baskervilles." The reason why this is degrading to the book is the fact that there is less deductive reasoning and wit from the great mind of Sherlock Holmes. This book reminds me of a suspenseful movie directed by Guy Ritchie who in fact, directed the Sherlock Holmes movies. I would recommend this book to any who like suspenseful, thought provoking, mysterious novels. "

    " Listen to this while traveling through Arkansas and Texas. Helped pass some of the hours of a 27 hour road trip. "

    " Really clever and engaging. Disappointed with the conclusion though. Also, didnt like how it jumped from Waston's diary to letters and stuff. Felt that i missed the action while it was happening and only caught the wrap up at the end. But still liked it. "
