Hello and welcome geturbooks library I am Brandon and today I want to talk about probably my favorite ever crime novel The Hound of the Baskervilles by Sir Arthur Conan Doyle This book was released in 1901 and 1902 as a serialized novel and it has all the aspects of what makes a fantastic countryside murder mysteries story.
You are probably familiar with the character of Sherlock Holmes the detective with an impeccable sense of observation whose skills of reasoning and deductions are at the highest level and he is followed around by his loyal friend and biographer dr. Watson is not quite as perceptive but is very quick with a pistol so these two make up this crime-fighting duo one of the original crime-fighting deers really and the Hound of Baskervilles Sherlock Holmes and dr. Watson moves out of London to investigate.

Something that looks like it might be supernatural a diabolic hellhound who is haunting and killing the inhabitants of the Moors of Devonshire shark Holmes first gets called to this situation when one of these inhabitants a dr.

There are also a lot of people who are convinced that this dog is haunted this is a supernatural being now Sherlock Holmes who’s very much the voice of reason and of rationality does believe in diabolic hellhounds goes to investigate now this main plot is interspersed with lots of little side plots lots of red herrings lots of other stories that come together to make this kind of spooky really involved a detailed crime mystery.
We have so many tropes of crime fiction that we all know and love like the slightly creepy Butler or the escaped convict who just escaped from prison and is on the run there are lots of different aspects to it lots of different characters who might be behind these killings and as a reader, you can guess along with Sherlock Holmes I have to admit.
I did not guess who did it but that did not really matter at all because for me what I loved about this story was the atmosphere the darkness you can basically see the foggy mists and the dangerous swamps you really do get a sense of foreboding or walking through this kind of foggy misty abandoned place and I think it’s a fantastic setting for a crime novel I think this is Arthur Conan Doyle’s masterpiece now usually Sherlock Holmes works much better in short stories than in novels.
In my opinion the Hound of the Baskervilles truly compiles the best of what we love about Sherlock Holmes which is the relationship between Sherlock and Watson for example the different suspects that we can all kind of have a go at they all have their own dark secrets of course and the question of how something really impossible could have actually happened.
