About book The Hound Of The Baskervilles (2009)

Hound of the Baskervilles, by Sir Arthur Conan Doyle. 160 pages + 9928 = 10088 pages for 2012.This was a second book, a part of the Study in Scarlet novel I just read. I enjoyed it more than the first. The author shifts the scene from London into an incredibly dark and dreary moor in the English wilderness. The protagonist, a survivor of a long line of Baskervilles, is worried for his life—and rightly so. He is hunted by an unknown member of the family, long ago disinherited and seeking to take over as the new owner of the rich estate. Enter Sherlock and his loyal Watson. The descriptions of the moors remind me of Wuthering Heights, although I believe I enjoyed this novella more than the great novel out of the canon itself. If you are looking for a great sample of the literary might of Sir Arthur Conan Doyle, look no further. **** = Four Star rating. Once again reading outside my comfort zone, this is a classic graphic novelization of a famous mystery story. I typically don't enjoy either classics or mysteries. This is a famous story of Sir Charles Baskerville who has recently died suddenly, and Henry Baskerville, his nephew and the heir to his estate who is being threatened. Sherlock and Watson travel with Henry to the moor to investigate the threat, made complicated by an escaped murderer, jealousy, mysterious family dynamics, and a possible hell hound.The characterization is completely flat, which isn't super surprising. The focus is on story, and expects that you know the characters. I did like how the characters were visually represented. The storyline follows the mystery formula, complete with multiple starts and stops. The story is haunting and atmospheric. The visual look and use of color does well to represent this. Despite being a mystery, this isn't a page turner of non-stop action. There is a lot of set up, and there is a lot of dialogue which is slowed down further by the style.Some of the characters were great - Watson, Dr. Mortimer, Mrs. Stapleton, so it is too bad that I disliked Holmes both in character and visual representation. The art is generally excellent though and reminds me of an animated movie.
