The Hound of Baskervilles (Collins Classics)

Sir Arthur Conan Doyle's The Hound of Baskervilles (Collins Classics)

The Hound Of The Baskervilles is one of Arthur Conan Doyle's most famous Crime novels, in which Sherlock Holmes has to solve the case of a ghostly hound and an old curse. Summary Of The Book The Hound Of The Baskervilles, written by Arthur Conan Doyle, is a Work of Crime fiction featuring the fictional investigator Sherlock Holmes. As the narrative begins, Sir Henry Baskerville returns to his Family house on the moors in Dartmoor to find out that Sir Charles Baskerville died under unusual circumstances. Everybody fears that the curse that Hugo Baskerville brought on his Family has returned. It is now up to Holmes and Dr. Watson to investigate the mysterious death. Sherlock Holmes has to use his deductive skills to solve the seemingly supernatural mystery. The Baskervilles worry about the Ancient Death curse of the hellhound that haunts the moors by night. Who in Dartmoor can benefit from the Death of Sir Henry Baskerville? Does the hound really exist or is it a figment of everybody’s imagination? These questions are foremost on the detective’s mind. Employing Watson's diary, letters, and his reminiscences, the novel follows the unravelling of the mystery of Charles’ death, with vivid details and numerous twists. It remains to be seen whether Holmes is able to save the heir of the Baskervilles or if the latter faces the same fate as Sir Charles. There are more than 20 Television and film adaptations of The Hound Of The Baskervilles, among which the 1959, 1972, and 1982 versions are popular. In the year 2003, the book was named as one of the Books on the BBC's The Big Read list. First published in 1902, The Hound Of The Baskervilles is a timeless and compelling Victorian mystery.
