The Hound of the Baskervilles

This book can be downloaded and read in Apple Books on your Mac or iOS device.

Description

The terrible spectacle of the beast, the fog of the moor, the discovery of a body, this classic horror story pits detective against dog. When Sir Charles Baskerville is found dead on the wild Devon moorland with the footprints of a giant hound nearby, the blame is placed on a family curse. It is left to Sherlock Holmes and Doctor Watson to solve the mystery of the legend of the phantom hound before Sir Charles' heir comes to an equally gruesome end.

From Publishers Weekly

24 August 2009 – This better than average comics version of the quintessential 1901 Sherlock Holmes novel shows the first private detective's cool rationality confronting gibbering horror in order to thwart an ancient curse, a hound from hell that kills the male heads of a wealthy family. Patriarch Sir Charles Baskerville just having been frightened to death, Holmes and Dr. Watson set out to protect the family heir, Sir Henry. Few trappings of gothic mystery are missing from the action, but they are countered by Holmes's instructions that Watson should observe closely and analyze skeptically everything he sees. Edginton's script is much closer to Conan Doyle's original than most adaptations, although that does mean that the characters get to talk a lot. Culbard's energetic layouts and darkly sinister backgrounds are effective; when he turns to the story's people, unfortunately, the Seth-like brushwork stretches their heads until they look like animated kidney beans. Overall, though, Hound gives modern readers a taste of what makes Sherlock Holmes an immortal character.

Customer Reviews

Still fantastic

If you've never read a Sherlock Holmes story before, this is a great choice to begin with. By the end you will realise why SH stories are still so popular and loved by hard core fans and new comers alike. Mystery, suspense, action,humour, romance...it's all there. It's never dull and not overly long. This will have you reading to the very last word to find out who,how and why. And it's free!!! Don't let the fact it was written over 100 years ago put you off.
