The original title of the book: The Hound of the Baskervilles (annotated)

The rich landowner Sir Charles Baskerville is found dead in the park of his manor surrounded by the grim moor of Dartmoor, in the county of Devon. His death seems to have been caused by a heart attack, but the victim's best friend, Dr. Mortimer, is convinced that the strike was due to a supernatural creature, which haunts the moor in the shape of an enormous hound, with blazing eyes and jaws. In order to protect Baskerville's heir, Sir Henry, who's arriving to London from Canada, Dr. Mortimer asks for Sherlock Holmes' help, telling him also of the so-called Baskervilles' curse, according to which a monstrous hound has been haunting and killing the family males for centuries, in revenge for the misdeeds of one Sir Hugo Baskerville, who lived at the time of Oliver Cromwell.

    Having got this book and started reading it, I found the style was not what I was expecting - it is very simple and prosaic. After some brief research I realised that book (completely black/white cover with wolf head) is not the story as written by Conan Doyle but a retelling of it by some unnamed writer. To be honest, I stopped reading after one page, but I guess that if you want to rattle through the plot without having to deal with old-fashioned language it has some purpose, but I wanted to read a classic so it was useless for me. To be fair, I requested a refund and got it instantly without having to return the item, so the upshot is that I now have a free book I don't want. But I'd rather have paid and had the thing I wanted in the first place.

    I can well imagine how it must have been to read Sherlock Holmes when first published and be impressed by his novel, deductive methods. In the light of our exposure to so many TV series that make us all think we could walk into a crime scene, pull on our disposable plastic gloves and figure out who dun it, motive, method, opportunity, it all felt a bit pedestrian. Sorry, Sir Arthur, I really did want to be more impressed.It was interesting to have spring to mind scenes from films and TV, old and new, and how the enigmatic (or is it ASD?) Holmes was portrayed.I must have read most of the Holmes stories as a teenager (in the 60s!!) and recall that they were real page-turners and plot twisters to me then. Ah!! the loss of innocence.

    Perhaps a central attraction of The Hound of The Baskervilles is that one mystery in the plot breeds another almost ad infinitum. Dr Mortimer believes that Sir Charles Baskerville's death is due to the curse of the Baskervilles by which successive heirs to its legacy have been snuffed out in untimely fashion across the centuries since the time of Cromwell when after an avenging spirit wants to settle a score after the early Sir Hugo Baskerville's lifestyle and deeds had blackened the family's name.There is an attempt to reinforce the plausibility of the curse in the suggestion that when it is found that Sir Charles' body shows no sign of violence to it, the only possible explanation of his untimely death may be that he died of fright after witnessing the notorious hound, reputed by some to be a beast inhabited by a demon.The plot clearly demands a willing suspension of disbelief and though it is a little difficult to take it seriously, there is just enough in the so-called myth of the beast to put events into the realm of possibility.

    Fascinating case which demonstrates Conan Doyle at his best. The gripping plot with excellent development of character shows how Sherlock Holmes unwinds the complex reality behind simplistic superstition
