    " Starts out a little slow, but then just became amazing. "

    " I had fun re-reading this classic with my son Benjamin, especially after seeing the BBC series SHERLOCK version. It was interesting to analyze Sherlock's methods in light of the book "Mastermind: How to Think Like Sherlock Holmes." I think Watson is under-valued. In this mystery, at least, he does all of the leg work and Holmes swoops in to take the glory! "

    " fabulous story the way he sort the matters and reveals the truth is fab good.......... "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Ben Iverson | 1/6/2014

    " The Hound of the Baskervilles is a longer Sherlock mystery, spanning several chapters rather than being contained in a single one like most of Holmes' adventures. And, I quite liked the slower build up and the added mystery than can be achieved with a longer story. The plot itself was a great one, I felt, and it kept me guessing up until the end. All in all, this is probably my favorite Sherlock Holmes that I've read. A really great story! "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Matt | 5/2/2011

    " Another fun Sherlock Holmes book. I was worried the intrigue wouldn't hold for the length of an entire novel, but my fears were entirely misguided. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Chris | 2/12/2011

    " Very atmospheric. A nightmare inducing read. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 anguinea | 1/27/2011

    " Spooky dark magic, madness, existentialism...I can see how this has influenced so many modern horror writers. Also, I now understand what critics mean when they refer to writing as "Lovecraftian": Thick and chewy overwritten descriptions abound!

    Better than I expected. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Dyanna | 4/28/2010

    " Very creepy, and very good. Gothic and demonic monsters as told in the early 1900's. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Jesse | 9/20/2007

    " This was actually my first time exposed to either of these stories, and let me tell you that this audio format is excellent. The reader had the perfect voice for portraying these erie tales of horrors from beyond our world. I can't wait to try volume 2. "

About the Author

H. P. Lovecraft (1890–1937) was born in Providence, Rhode Island, where he lived most of his life. His relatively small corpus of work—three short novels and about sixty short stories—has nevertheless exercised a broad influence on subsequent writing in the field. In fact, he is widely regarded as one of the most influential horror writers of the twentieth century.
