The Hound of the Baskervilles (book review)

The Hound of the Baskervilles, by Sir Arthur Conan Doyle, is the story of the Baskerville family, who have been haunted by a monstrous hound since the 17th century. The story began with the death of Hugo Baskerville, whose throat was torn out by a huge dog. Centuries later, the spectral hound was thought to be merely a myth. But then Sir Charles Baskerville is found dead on the moor with a hound's footprints nearby, and you can't help but wonder--is the legend true? Sherlock Holmes and his assistant Dr. Watson are on the case...

This book was suspenseful and spine-tingling. It was certainly a page turner, and the adventure seemed never-ending.

I give this book 8.5 out of 10 stars.

I remember reading this way back when I was close to your age! It was a real spine-tingler then, and I imagine it still would be were I to read it again. I loved Sherlock Holmes so much that for one birthday my dad gave me the complete, annotated set. I still have it, though I think it may have worked its way into my older son's library. I should check on that.

This is the first and only Sherlock Holmes book that I've read. But it convinced me that I want to read more. So glad you enjoyed it.
