Synopsis

The Hound of the Baskervilles is the third of four crime novels by Sir Arthur Conan Doyle featuring the detective Sherlock Holmes. Sir Charles Baskerville, a baronet, is found lying dead among yew trees in the grounds of his country house, Baskerville Hall. The cause of death is ascribed to a heart attack. Fearing for the safety of Sir Charles's nephew and only known heir, Henry Baskerville—who was coming to London from Canada to claim his inheritance—Dr James Mortimer travels from Devon to London, and appeals for help to Sherlock Holmes. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/The_Hound_of_the_Baskervilles

A Real Sherlock Holmes
April 13th, 2015
No wonder the title is so well known. A real classic that takes your breath until the last page. A pace slower than the modern thrillers, so you can enjoy a cup of tea while reading, but the tea may get cold ... Enjoy!

This mystery novel holds up over a 100 years later
November 17th, 2014
The Hound of the Baskervilles is a vibrant, engaging book which ought to be a solid entertainment for readers. Its mystery isn’t predicated on the overuse of (often arbitrary) plot twists. Instead, it focuses on character and mood to convey a tale which is engaging both intellectually and emotionally.

Good old detective work

In the era of the internet and wireless communications, tablet computers and smart phones it is quite an escape to be reminded how things used to be and how deductive reasoning was applied in good old detective work.

O livro começa bem, com uma premissa bem interessante e um ambiente bastante envolvente. No entanto, a historia vai se tornando bem monótona, principalmente quando o final vai se aproximando, pois a trama se torna bastante óbvia. E, mesmo assim, o narrador Watson vê tudo como uma grande novidade - mais ou menos como se o escritor subestimasse a capacidade de dedução do leitor. Quem é fã de Sherlock Homes, contudo, deve, sim, ler esse livro, considerado um dos grandes do Conan Doyle. Já quem é expert em Agatha Christie vai matar a trama logo, logo. Para esses, não sei se "O Cão dos Baskerville" vai ter muita graça...
