I am 12 years old, sixth grade. I am reading this book in my literature circles. Although I am only about half way through the book, I can definately say it is a great book. We have to read 9 novels by the end of the year (we only get to choose from a certain pile of nine books) and i have to admit, this was one of my last picks, i was really hesitant to read it. I have now learned that i do not only like girl stories and romance novels among funny books, but now i have been exposed to a whole nother world of literature. For this, i very much thank my teacher. Now, reguarding the actual book, I am very much enjoying it. I do have to admit that some words i need to look up, but that is easy on nook! It really grabs your attention in some parts, but sometimes, more in the beginning, you can get a little bored. Many people say that kids cannot enjoy these books, they are wrong! ~alicia s.

I didn't like it.

The story dragged on and on using too many unnessecary words. It was poop.

    Don't listen to 'one cool kid'

    this book wasn't a extremely good book at all. It was a horrible book with no sense whatsoever. The book was boring until the last chapter. If you even picked up the book then u could have just went to the laster chapter and read the ending of the book, and saved yourself 150 pages of your time. Henry Baskerville gets frightened by a 'Curse' ..but sherlock holmes eventually solves this lame mystery.... If there was one thing you could read...it definately wouldnt be this book

    Avoid it!

    Sir Arthur Conan Doyle's 'The Hound of the Baskervilles' is a mildly enterraining story with a slow plot that goes from bad to worse in pages. The book immediately starts out with Sherlock Holmes learning about a 'ghost hound' that is haunting the home of the Baskervilles, Baskerville Hall. This hound, killed the Hall's previous owner and a new Baskerville, Henry Baskerville, is moving in. Henry puts Sherlock Homes on the case. You follow Holmes closer and closer to the truth to find if this hound is a real ghost or just real. If you enjoyed other Sherlock Holmes stories you'll love this book, otherwise steer clear from it. Many times the story goes into excessive ammounts of detail, that if you're used to, make the plot more realistic interesting, but if not, over-complicate the story.
