This is a brilliant novel, written by Sir Arthur Conan Doyle. Sir Arthur Conan Doyle lived during the years of 1859-1930. A famous author known for writing Sherlock Holmes Mysteries. Many adored reading his books. The Hound of the Baskervilles is about a curse on the Baskervilles family. The curse is a supernatural hound that hunts the family. When a Baskerville dies mysteriously, Sherlock goes on the case. Is the curse real or is there a murderer? I adore this book. I recommend the book to anyone who is wanting mystery,adventure, and a bit of a scare. Those that want to use their brains to try and solve the mystery before Sherlock Holmes does.
