Just had to re-read it, as was down on Dartmoor, went to the exhibition in the Princetown public Information building. Not aged at all, short enough to get into and finish in an afternoon.

A very intriguing detective case and one which I do not believe can be compared to any other story. It's in a league of its own.

5.0 out of 5 stars Classic detective fiction, never bettered 19 Jun 2014
By Jenny
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
In my opinion, amongst the top ten detective stories ever written. Splendid cast of characters, headed by Mr Sherlock Holmes, a wonderful sense of place, a beautifully structured slow-burn plot and a thrilled demouement.

However, the layout of this Kindle copy has a fault: the document near the begining, which I think is given in italics or another font in the print copy, is split into widely separated lines like a piece of modern free verse, and this makes it very hard to read. As it is crucial to the rest of the plot, this is a serious problem.

Enjoyed re-reading. Not as frightening as remembered, perhaps because am much older now. Some clues were very obvious and Dr Watson seemed a bit clueless

Well, if you are looking for an all action book, this isn't the one for you. However if you are looking for a story with a slow build up, this is it.

The story started off with Sherlock and Dr Watson discussing a stick left behind by their visitor and so they began surmising his profile based on various clues engraved on a stick he left behind. Shortly after, they received a visit from a Dr James Mortimer, who presented a manuscript given to him by Sir Charles Baskerville, whose sudden death stirred up great excitement in Derbyshire. It contained the statement of a certain legend which runs in the Baskerville family. It all began with Hugo Baskerville, who fell in love with a young maiden who did not return his favour, so he set about removing her forcibly from her home and brought her to his home. While he was in a state of intoxication she escaped and in anger he set after her, with his hounds. As a result the maiden fell to her death out of fear and fatigue but that wasn't the most terrifying scent. It was the body of Hugo Baskerville, standing over him was a huge black hound tearing his throat out and because of his actions it has plagued his family ever since.

Now the next in line to inherit Baskerville Hall is Mr Henry Baskerville and Mr Mortimer is concerned he too will meet a tragic end. An appointment was arranged to meet with Henry, who is the last of the Baskerville and so the events began to take shape, with a missing boot and impersonation.

The story moved on with Dr Watson travelling to Derbyshire with Holmes staying behind in London. Watson was to report back to Sherlock about anything pertinent to the case.
The events of the story is told through Dr Watson and his correspondents to Holmes. So the majority of the story is told through Watson.
