|The Hound of the Baskervilles|
by Sir Arthur Conan Doyle
Genre: Mystery, Classic
A strange family legend combined with a mysterious death, add some other elements that aren't easily explained and you have the makings of a case that piques Sherlock Holmes' curiosity. This story is primarily set on the moors of Devon in England, the perfect backdrop for a creepy legend.
I have to admit that I was a little disappointed with this story from Arthur Conan Doyle. As a lover of mysteries, I had been looking forward to reading a Sherlock Holmes story. But Holmes was absent from most of this book as Watson is on his own for a good portion of it.
The Kindle version that I had was also missing some pertinent parts of the story, which I had to look up online to not be completely lost. And while the mystery they were solving was hardly over exciting, it was still a very enjoyable read with plenty of twists and turns to the plot.
