Rated 4 out of 5 by from Frightening and suspenseful This book has been on my to-read list for such a long time, I finally decided to pick it up. I wish I had done that sooner, I thought this story was fantastic. The Hound had me terrified, the story had me guessing and every book that I read has me loving Sherlock Holmes more and more. This story has Holmes and Watson investigating the death of Sir Charles. His family has been plagued by the legend of the devilish Hound of the Baskervilles for generations. The family fears the moor at night, they stay indoors so as to not tempt fate. Sir Charles buys into the legend wholeheartedly, making all attempts to avoid the moor and making plans to move away from the area. So why then is his dead body found out there late at night, the night before he is to move away? Even more intriguing, why are there paw prints from a hound close to the body? Holmes must solve this mystery before the heir to Sir Charles' fortune meets the same fate.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Best Book I Have Read In Ages! Surprisingly, this was my first Sherlock Holmes book and I loved EVERYTHING about it. The mystery is exceptional, written in that particular style of detective stories that were characteristic of the author's time period. It is absolutely worth its status as a classic. Even a non-reader would enjoy it! Just don't read it past sunset. ;)
