The Hound of the Baskervilles Book Review

book review of the hound of baskervilles

Mortimer, who explains the legend of the supernatural hound who haunts the Baskerville family. Sherlock Holmes and his friend Dr. Instead, he insists on leaving soon for Baskerville Hall.

The Hound of the Baskervilles Summary

book review of the hound of baskervilles

Actually, come to think of it, if Fred Astaire had ever played Sherlock Holmes, that would have been kind of fun. Sherlock and Watson travel with Henry to the moor to investigate the threat, made complicated by an escaped murderer, jealousy, mysterious family dynamics, and a possible hell hound. Sir Charles Baskerville is dead with no signs of violence, but showing a terrified face. The views expressed here are my own, frank and uninfluenced. And the Baskerville Hound is truly creepy.

I, however, have never read the book and approached this adaptation in near total ignorance. This curse appears to be a typical Victorian crime for money. I felt like I was reading the first detective novel ever written. This is a famous story of Sir Charles Baskerville who has recently died suddenly, and Henry Baskerville, his nephew and the heir to his estate who is being threatened.
