On a morning at half past ten Dr Mortimer comes to tell his story of The Hound of The Baskervilles and how he thinks it may be connected to the unfortunet death of Sir Charles. After hearing his explanation Holmes and Watson are very interested and go over to Sir Charles's house wich is going to be housing Sir Henry from now on. While they get more information before they go they notice a man in a taxi watching Dr Motimer and Sir Henry. Holmes and Watson try to follow him but they ride away. Watson arrives at the house without Holmes (he said he wasn't allowed to leave London because he is workin on a case). Watson hears some screams in the night and also find the butler Barrymore has also been supplying a escaped prinsoner with food and clothes the escapy is Miss Barrymore's brother. The neighbour and his 'sister' (but is actually his wife) give more stories but Stapleton is actually the one who is the bad guy??? Watson gets more information from Laura.L. Holmes was actually at the house of Sir Henry all along and the find the prisoner dead. They manage to kill the ghost off the family and figure out Staplton's plan. I find this book to be pretty good bacause it has allot of mystery to it and its really unpredicteble though i find it diffucult to understand some words bacause it's old English. It's a thin book that reads fast and is very withdrawing and you can read the book in one sitting bacause it's so exciting. Allot of the people also have good character development The only negative is that sometimes you dont know who is talking becaus there are allot of characters at once The book is writen in the perspective of Watson with lots off flashbacks to stories frome the past. The writning is in old English and everything sticks together so if u dont pay attention u might not understand what's going on sometimes The book is defintely a good book worth the read

    It is a great story. It tells a story about a mysterious dog pestering the citizens in Dartmoor. Sherlock Holmes and his partner Wattson try to solve yet another mystery and it isn't easy. I really liked reading this book because it was on an easy level, sometimes I didn't understood every word but when I looked at the context I knew the meaning of the word.It was a intense story, sometimes I had to close the book and take a deep breath before reading what happened next.

What I also really liked about this book was that for a Sherlock Holmes story it was easy to read. It made me confident about myself and gave me a good feeling that I understood everything they wrote down. I really recommend this book for people who are trying to learn to read English. The variety in characters makes the boring parts of the story more interesting. I think this is a book anyone who is learning English should read. Not only because it's a good book to start with, but also because it's a classic story everyone should know. I hope this review made you decided to read the book.

    I really like this book a lot. This book is about a mysterious case about a ghost hunted family. The family Baskervilles is getting exterminated on strange ways. The whole family Baskervilles is dying because of a creature that eliminates every single one of the family. Sir Henry is the last one alive. But he is getting chased down as well. Sherlock holmes is getting called in and eventually solves the case. The composition of the book is very good, you start slowly but then the tension increases I really like this book a lot.

I would recommend this book to a person who enjoys mystery and detective stories. But if the person is a good reader, I would like to recommend the full version of the book because I liked this one, but I think there are going to be more details in the full version. Mathias

    This was my first Sherlock Holmes novel. I'm not usually a mystery reader, but I enjoyed it. There were plenty of twists and little mini reveals as Watson, Sherlock, and other characters follow the threads of the mystery. I didn't, however, like the ending - there was no certain closure.

    Prvá knižka po anglicky v tomto roku a som nadšená! Super nápad, s postavami som sa hneď zžila a dej bol vždy napínavý. Trochu mi to pripomínalo Hercula Poirota od Agathy Christie len s pridanými prvkami fikcie. A keďže Poirota milujem táto kniha má len a len potešila. Odporúčam všetkým desiatimi. Hodnotenie: 5/5

Alkisah, Keluarga Baskervilles mempunyai legenda turun temurun tentang kutukan yang menghantui setiap kepala keluarga tersebut yang terkait dengan keberadaan seekor anjing pemburu yang disebut-sebut sebagai anjing setan. Masing-masing dari para kepala kelaurga itu mengalami nasib naas dan meninggal tidak lama setelah memperoleh kedudukan tersebut. Sherlock Holmes dan Dr. Watson mendapat kesempatan untuk memecahkan misteri anjing setan dan penyebab kematian para kepala keluarga Baskerville untuk menyelamatkan nyawan sang kepala keluarga yang baru, Sir Henry Baskerville. Karena satu dan lain hal, Holmes tidak bisa menyertai kunjungan Watson ke Baskerville Hall, namun dia tetap meminta kabar terbaru dari sahabatnya tersebut dengan bantuan kurir pengirim pesan. Sepanjang Watson tinggal di kastil megah tersebut, dia mengalami beberapa keanehan di sekitarnya, mulai dari suara-suara tengah malam, kelakuan mencurigakan kepala pelayan di rumah tersebut. Pertemuan Watson dengan beberapa orang penduduk sekitar Baskerville Hall memberinya pencerahan, terutama terkait dengan masa lalu mereka yang memberikan banyak pencerahan untuknya dan Holmes. Bantuan dari sang Sahabat datang tanpa diduga, membantu Watson memecahkan misteri di balik tragedi keluarga Baskerville dan anjing setan yang legendaris. Buku setebal 104 halaman ini merupakan versi singkat dari karya asli Sir Arthur Conan Doyle, salah satu penulis cerita misteri terkenal sepanjang masa. Walaupun kurang puas karena singkatnya penuturan cerita, namun kejutan yang disajikan masih cukup dapat kurasakan sebagai klimaks akhir cerita.

    This book is a mystery story and I was very impressed during I read this book. All the times when I read this book, I always read with tension. This book takes place in Baskerville, which is the Western of England. I like the characters, its settings and the author's word choice. When Sherlock investigated case and told all about the murderer, he was absolutely nice. I know it's fiction but I was almost in the story.

    I was a bit disappointed as I realized that this was not the original. It was the only one at my library and it was filed under Doyle! Now I wonder what I missed and will have to find an original to read. I picked this one up as one of a couple since I realized that I had never read a Sherlock Holmes adventure and in anticipation of the new TV show Elementary I felt I should have some sense of the original writing. Not sure that this one really gave me that.

    Maga a sztori jó, csak ez a könnyített verzió nem az igazi. Mindenképp el fogom majd olvasni magyarul is a teljes könyvet, ez most egy angolos kihíváshoz kellett – lehet, hogy inkább nehezebb szintet kellett volna választani hozzá, de őszintén szólva azok közül, amik rendelkezésemre álltak, ez volt most az egyetlen igazán szimpatikus. Mi mást mondhatnék még… Holmes itt is hozza a formáját, mint mindig. :D

    Amazing story that written by Sir Arthur Conan Doyle. It was about a huge dog that live on Baskervilles in the South-West of England and there was a killer who made the dog to murder the people who live on it especially the Baskervilles' family to inherit the lands . The murder was a member of Baskervilles' family . Beside that all the details in this case were discovered by detective man who live in London . Perfect book I like it and hope to come as a TV movies :) Amazing story that written by Sir Arthur Conan Doyle.

    It is a nice book by Sir arthur canon doyle, he has done a great job writing this book. my favorite book on my book shelf is harry potter and i could not find anything as good as that but i think that this book has competed it. I have also seen the Sherlock series on my laptop and i think it is completely different from this one and i think it is better. it was fun reading this book. GREAT WORK BY SIR ARTHUR CANON DOYLE......

    Nice quick creepy mystery here, all the wonderfulness of Holmes and Watson fully revealed in this one. There are some nice turns along the way as the story unfolds, with a nice climax. Very much worth reading, quite fun.

    I suppose the original would get five stars. As for the adaptation, it is not bad at all. I gave it four stars because it has some clichéd expressions, which, I suppose, are not a part of the original text.
