The Hound of the Baskervilles is the third of the four crime novels written by Sir Arthur Conan Doyle featuring the detective Sherlock Holmes. Originally serialized in The Strand Magazine from August 1901 to April 1902, it is set largely on Dartmoor in Devon in England's West Country and tells the story of an attempted murder inspired by the legend of a fearsome, diabolical hound of supernatural origin. Sherlock Holmes and his companion Dr. Watson investigate the case. This was the first appearance of Holmes since his intended death in The Final Problem, and the success of The Hound of the Baskervilles led to the character's eventual revival.In 2003, the book was listed as number 128 of 200 on the BBC's The Big Read poll of the UK's "best-loved novel." In 1999, it was listed as the top Holmes novel, with a perfect rating from Sherlockian scholars of 100.*Includes annotated Sherlock Holmes Image Gallery and link to a free full-length audio recording of The Hound of the Baskervilles.

4.5 (Audiobook) The Hound of the Baskervilles
Once it got up and running it was highly enjoyable. I am deducting a half a star, though, because I was not all that enthused with the book's narrator, Simon Prebble. I found his voices for Holmes and Watson to be far too similar--especially at the beginning--and I was having trouble keeping up wi...

0.0 Halloween Book Bingo 2016: Ninth Update – Catch-Up Post and BINGOS No. 6-9
So, after having spent the past weekend and the better part of last night and today tying up half a dozen half-finished bingo reads that, naturally, hadn't shown any progress whatsoever while I was exiled on planet work overload, for the time being I'm back on track.
