    My Grandpa Cannon loved this story, and he often told of a time when he went to see a "picture show" about the Hound of the Baskervilles. "It scared the willies out of me," he said, and then he and his friend had to part ways as my grandpa rode his bicycle home in the dark.He was thinking about this...

And the Baskerville Hound is truly creepy.Holmes and Watson are visited one morning by a Dr. Mortimer, who e...

    Sadly I don't remember much about this one, except for the fact that the setting is very important and that it is an intense mystery. I read it for school three years ago. Crazy I don't even remember fragments of the story because I recall we did a long and mentally painful paper on it. Murder... wi...

    I'd been toying with the idea of reading books in French. I can understand the language - but as for speaking it, well here's another ball game. I read part of this edition in my class when I was 13 years old. I read when the hound was racing towards its would be victim.Would be victim...due to Sher...
