    This review applies to the Kindle version of the book available from MysteriousPress.com/Otto Penzler editions.There are a number of one-star reviews that some Kindle versions are missing any part of the text that was originally printed in a newspaper or letter format - or in the case of this novel, the manuscript that details the legend concerning Sir Hugo and the Hound of the Baskervilles.I've doublechecked, and the MysteriousPress e-book does NOT appear to be missing any of these sections. The manuscript is definitely there, as are the few newspaper articles in chapter 4.The story, of course, is classic Holmes at his best - disguises, uncovering clues, setting Watson on a task without giving him all the details, requiring the client to take some risks, and finding the villain. Well worth the read, and well-formatted.

    Really wanted the illustrations. I didn't realize that there were so many illustrations and that this book prints the stories in the original Strand magazine format. It's just like reading the original with numerous illustrations embedded inside the text. Totally superior to reading text only. Got this used for a few dollars and totally worth it. Recommend to anyone who want the full experience. But remember, not all the stories were illustrated and therefore some are missing form this book.

    I love Sherlock Holmes - the originals (like this), the spin-offs, the movies, the TV... He's such a fantastic character, it's hard to imagine a time when the concept of deductive reasoning was not de rigeur, both in life and in art, but once upon a time it was not - and it is stories like this one that helped popularize the concept. This is Conan Doyle at his finest - and, oddly enough I discovered, more about Watson than The Great Man Himself.It's a creepy tale, oft-told and re-imagined, but the original version is a classic and not to be missed. I started working my way through the Holmes canon a while ago, but stumbled on the first two novels a bit (I'm obsessed with reading books in order) - then started reading a book that referenced this one and didn't want to ruin its mystery so decided to read it first. Am I ever glad I did - and if you're looking for a jumping-off point for Holmes, definitely recommend starting here rather than at the technical beginning... You won't miss anything by doing so; Holmes and Watson are so much a part of the popular imagination that everyone already knows the gist of their relationship, so you might as well start with what I (and many) consider the best novel and work you way in that way! You won't be sorry... This is, pure and simple, a great story!

    Definitely my favorite Sherlock Holmes adventure. The atmosphere is great, descriptions of the Dartmoor and it's foggy and gloomy weather and strange sounds and dangerous and yet beautiful in some dark beauty way landscape makes a perfect place for the scary legend to be reborn. In the center of all this are a castle and mysterious death of its owner.Heir is here, and the problems were begun. First the small one, but nothing is small for Sherlock Holmes! Watson is going in Dartmoor, Holmes stays in London, events are beginning to be weirder and weirder. And there is not even a trace of Holmes to shed some light in the dark moor of Dartmoor...

    Anything Sherlock related is awesome. I won't review the text of this book because everyone knows the stories. But this being the ILLUSTRATED Sherlock, that's what I will address. What we have here are the original stories as published in the Strand magazine, but with the original illustrations by the original illustrator. This is what people saw when they were first exposed to Sherlock way back when. The illustrations are very cool actually. Black and white (of course), but with no borders. The edges of the room or scene or whatever simply aren't there. Makes for a neat effect. What I have just come to realize is that almost every actor the public has seen portray Holmes looks just like the guy that Paget saw in his head. That's all well and good I suppose but I have to wonder if I had read the text without any illustrations would I see the same guy. For my money Jeremy Brett is Sherlock Holmes. So now, as I read through this book, even with the original illustrations, I will see Jeremy. Just something I noticed.
