This might possibly be my favorite Sherlock story! It has all the Classic 19th c Gothic elements: Fog-steeped moors, dead of the night howling & prowling, a turreted manor house... Sherlock takes on a case in which a baron inherits not only an estate, but a curse! Reason and logic war w/ superstition backed with witness accounts.
N.b. - This is the original story, NOT the TV adaptation-- which differs significantly but is no less entertaining :-)

charl08 How funny that they put the new tv cast on the cover of the original story! 2w

I‘m just hitting two hours as I finish off my most recent Conan Doyle book. Definitely my favorite Sherlock so far!! And perfectly haunting for the season. 🐺

Thank you so much @AlizaApp I love everything and coincidentally I was just thinking of reading The Hound of the Baskervilles. I think it along with The Murder at the Vicarage and Death Overdue will be great fall reads. Also I tried the pumpkin cheesecake cookies they are really good 💙😺💙

I have found comfort form Sherlock Holmes all my life, when I need to get away Holmes is what I pick up.

The Hound Of The Baskervilles is one of those stories, its masterly writing and the twists and turns keep you hooked to the end.

I'm not a mystery fan so I've never actually read any Sherlock Holmes. I only read this one because it is the library's One Book choice and yeah, not my thing. I don't have any nostalgia of loving Holmes from my childhood and while I liked the Cumberbatch adaptations well enough I wasn't in love with the character or stories. This is just a wrong reader for the book situation.

I love all of the Pulp covers for classic novels that seem to be everywhere now. I had always pictured the hound of the Baskervilles as a really large dog, until now! Who would ever suspect the Jack Russel terrier of mauling people to death? Not even Sherlock.

rretzler So my first reaction is that the cover is very silly - it is giving me a good chuckle. I‘m fairly certain that was not the intention. 😝 7mo

Day 2 prompt for #Gratitude30 is Inspiration..... So how about the books that inspired a recent TV favourite (especially the brilliant first 2 seasons before they disappeared in a cloud of self referencing indulgence lol).

My son is learning a song in band called The Hound of the Baskervilles that he is very excited about and my daughter is obsessed with Benedict Cumberbatch as Sherlock on the Netflix show. Had to disrupt my Saturday on the couch to run out and pick the girl up from a movie so ducked into the used bookstore and grabbed these. They should go nicely with these graham cracker choc chip cookies I just made for the first time which are AMAZING. #yummy

1️⃣ No. Nope. I just read whatever.
2️⃣ I could say The Logogryph, but that would be disingenuous.Tagged.
3️⃣ I used to me a night owl in youth. Then I became an early bird. Now I'm just tired and would like to go back to bed.
4️⃣ Mostly right-handed, except for a few specific things, like shooting. I also do not approve of shooting.

Holmes leaned back in his chair, placed his finger-tips together, and closed his eyes, with an air of resignation.

It‘s only 169 pages but this book took forever to read! 😒

The long dialogue and explanations this book had just made it really unenjoyable. Had to finish this for Readinng Rumble this afternoon or I would have bailed.

Hanging out in the 1000 Islands. Saw the play at the Shaw Festival in Niagara-on-the-Lake, and it was amusing to note the differences. The book is always better, of course!

Found this beauty while backpacking through London a couple years ago. It was such a cool experience to stand where I'd pictured, throughout so many books by Arthur Conan Doyle. Lots of evidence and artifacts littered the apartment including some from #baskervilles. Loved this book. Probably my favorite Sherlock investigation. It was recommended by my Dad which makes it ever more special.

Probably the best known of the Sherlock Holmes stories. I love the Poe like eeriness of this story in the characters, the scenery and the sound ominous foreboding moor the locked its secrets with fear.
