The Hound of the Baskervilles is one of Doyle's more famous (and longer) Sherlock Holmes stories. Written after he killed off Holmes, Hound is set before the confrontation with Moriarty and was Doyle giving in to the pressure of public to write another story about his famous detective.

Hound is atmospheric, intense, and spooky. Is there really a hound? Is it really a ghost? What exactly is going on with the Baskervilles?

It's been a while since I've read this Holmes story so I'm excited to reread it. Has anyone read it before? Do you already have an impression of the book? Or will this be your first time?

Let us know!

Ann (ann-fracturedfiction) | 484 comments I've read it before (more than once- I believe). It's a very atmospheric book, with a tangible sense of place. Can't wait to read it again.
