    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.

    HORRIBLE DRAWINGS

    I have regularly been shopping for Graphic Novels. I have never seen such awful drawings on any other Graphic Novel of our hero created by Sir Arthur Conan Doyle. Sherlock Holmes, is an English private eye and Dr. Watson, his sidekick is, as much an Englishman you can fathom. But the way all the characters are drawn in THIS Comic Book are atrocious. Sherlock Holmes looks a lot like Bollywood star Vinod Khanna. The rest all fit into various parts of our own Desi Actors. The language in this ad...

    Expected a better product

    The cover wasn't plain as shown. The paper quality was cheap, looked like a 20 year old book, liked it though.

    Great story in a great simplistic classic classic way

    The only star it lacks is due to price. Priced at 300, it is very thin. Recommended for collectors only.
