Ho deciso di approfittare dell'uscita della nuova collana "The Sherlock Holmes Collection" per recuperare una raccolta integrale delle opere dedicate al famoso detective e soprattutto per vincere la pigrizia e decidermi a leggere l'intera serie (cosa che rimando ormai da anni).
Avevo letto durante la scuola alcuni racconti ma ovviamente è passato così tanto tempo che a malapena li ricordo quindi... Perché non approfittare di questa fantastica occasione? Ho iniziato dal primo libro uscito in questa raccolta, "Il Mastino di Baskerville" un classico che avevo già letto alle medie ma che non ricordavo affatto. Come esperienza è stata fantastica! Mi sono sentita fin da subito coinvolta e posso capire il perché le opere di Doyle riescano ancora oggi a colpire il pubblico e interessare anche i più giovani. Ho trovato la traduzione fatta molto bene e lo stile di scrittura, nonostante siano passati gli anni, è così immediato, scorrevole e suggestivo da rendere il testo non solo comprensibile ma anche affascinante. Le descrizioni sono accurate e meticolose, in grado di farti sentire parte della storia, di immergerti in quei mondi così lontani e realistici. In questa avventura il nostro amato Sherlock si ritroverà in compagnia del fedele Watson a dover indagare su una misteriosa leggenda. Da anni la famiglia Baskerville sembra vittima di un terrificante Mastino proveniente dall'inferno e sono molte le voci che lo reputano responsabile della dipartita di Sir Charles Baskerville, venuto a mancare di recente per quelle che i medici definiscono cause naturali e legate ai suoi problemi di salute ma che gli abitanti della brughiera associano con timore a circostanze...molto più misteriose e paranormali. L'eredità della famiglia Baskerville sta per finire nelle mani dell'ultimo erede, Sir Henry e per Watson e Sherlock è importante capire se il baronetto è in pericolo, se rischia la vita a recarsi nella tenuta appartenuta da generazioni alla sua famiglia o se semplicemente la leggenda è una diceria di paese e la morte dello zio una fatalità. Il fedele dottor Watson verrà mandato ad indagare personalmente sull'intera vicenda e si scopriranno presto tutti i retroscena che si nascondono dietro le quinte di quel "delitto" così clamoroso. La storia è fin da subito intrigantissima. Amo le leggende popolari e la sola idea di un misterioso Mastino in grado di perseguitare una famiglia.... Beh... Era super inquietante! La voce narrante è quella di Watson che ci porta tramite il racconto della sua esperienza personale, le lettere e i frammenti di diario a riscoprire la soluzione misteriosa di quel caso così strampalato. Mi sono appassionata moltissimo durante tutta la lettura e mi sono ritrovata a muovermi tra le pagine come una bambina, a fare ipotesi e creare mille teorie su cosa potesse essere successo a Sir Charles. È stata un'esperienza molto divertente e il caso si è concluso in modo inaspettato e coerente con la storia narrata. Ogni elemento è stato ben studiato per intrigante il lettore e le descrizioni minuziose di ogni elemento, luogo, evento e personaggio sono servite per sentirmi ancora più coinvolta, come se fossi al fianco di Watson per tutto il tempo. Ho trovato carinissima questa nuova edizione, molto vintage e con dei disegni d'epoca in grado di rappresentare i momenti più "iconici". Sarei tentata di dare 5 stelle piene ma siamo all'inizio e... non voglio fin da subito esagerare con la mia valutazione. Non posso che consigliarlo. Se volete come me recuperare questa serie questa nuova raccolta in uscita in tutte le edicole potrebbe fare al caso vostro. Aspetto ovviamente con ansia il prossimo libro che di sicuro leggerò con piacere. Spero insomma che questa sia l'inizio di una fantastica avventura ( )

Sir Charles Baskerville has just died on his Dartmoor estate, seemingly the victim of a generations-old curse on the Baskervilles and the giant hound that haunts the moor. His heir, Sir Henry Baskerville, is due to arrive to take possession of the estate, and the neighborhood doctor fears for his life. Sherlock Holmes sends Watson to accompany Sir Henry to Baskerville Hall and to keep watch over him while Holmes attends to urgent business in London. As if a ghostly beast wasn’t enough, an escaped convict is also loose somewhere on the moor. Watson does his best in Holmes’s absence, but it will take the great detective to put an end to the curse.

All of the story elements work together to create one of the most memorable mysteries ever written. Baskerville Hall and Dartmoor are described so vividly that I could imagine I was actually there. I would recognize the characters on the street from the thorough descriptions of their physical characteristics and mannerisms. The atmosphere is a perfect blend of horror, suspense, and intrigue, with just a dash of humor. I regret that I had only one chance to experience this book for the first time, and this wasn’t it. Re-readings can’t recapture the thrill of the first time around. ( )

Some books have such a grip on the popular imagination that it is easy to fall under the mistaken impression that you know them very well. One such novel is certainly Conan Doyle's “The Hound of the Baskervilles”, in which the great “consulting detective” Sherlock Holmes solves the mystery of a spectral hound haunting the scions of a wealthy family on the bleak Devon moors.

I vaguely recall reading “The Hound of the Baskervilles” in my early teens. Fresh from a week’s stay in Dartmoor, I returned to it, and was surprised to discover that my impressions of the novel were based less on my recollections than on misconceptions and second-hand retellings.

For one thing, at the very beginning of the book I noticed an element of what could only be “self-parody”. Consider the following extract from the opening chapter, which led me to double-check whether I was reading the original text or a spoof:

I stood upon the hearth-rug and picked up the stick which our visitor had left behind him the night before...
"Well, Watson, what do you make of it?"
Holmes was sitting with his back to me, and I had given him no sign of my occupation.
"How did you know what I was doing? I believe you have eyes in the back of your head."
"I have, at least, a well-polished, silver-plated coffee-pot in front of me," said he.


Although the setting of the story is before Holmes’s presumed death at the Reichenbach Falls in (what should have been) his “Final Problem”, the Hound of the Baskervilles was the work in which Holmes returned to print after an absence of eight years to appease the public clamour for a new adventure featuring the seemingly omniscient detective. Conan Doyle’s playful opening scene might be poking fun not only at his own characters but also at the public’s obsession with his creation.

I was also surprised at the fact that, for the greater part of the novel, Watson is the protagonist. Certainly, the “presence” of Holmes hovers over each chapter, but putting Watson in the foreground gives the book a particular flavour. As Anthony Lejeune puts it in his foreword to this Capuchin Classics edition, you can stereotype Holmes but not Watson. It also makes this more of an “adventure story” than a “puzzle-solving” crime novel.

The most striking fact about Doyle’s “little book” however is how much it owes to the Gothic genre. Whilst most Holmes stories have a gothic element, this is generally of the Dickensian “London” type, where evil is battled in foggy city streets. Here however we’re in the classic territory of solitary country mansions, nightly terrors, eerie moorland, mires which entrap unwary men and beasts, escaped convicts, femmes fatales, family curses and, to top it all, a giant ghostly hound with flaring nostrils. And although the final neat (yet complex) solution explains away the supernatural trappings (as is typical of that strand of “rationalistic” Gothic which runs from Ann Radcliffe to Scooby-Doo), the brooding sense of fear and dread is difficult to shake off and gives the novel its distinctive aftertaste.

This is an undisputed classic. ( )

Here's what I wrote after reading in 1984: "Good Sherlock Homes. Don't we wish, just a bit, that the hound would have some supernatural master rather than a cold-blooded, aspiring human one?" Here's a suitable summarizing comment on NYPL posting: "With its atmospheric setting on the ancient, wild moorland and its savage apparition, The Hound of the Baskervilles is one of the greatest crime novels ever written. Rationalism is pitted against the supernatural and good against evil as Sherlock Holmes sets out to defeat a foe almost his equal." ( )

Yeah its pretty good, there were times when it was 4 stars but dropped a bit in the latter stages.
I thought i'd like this better than the short Holmes stories as a lot of those tend to lack much characterization. It started off strong but when your 2/3's of the way through you realise not much has really happened. I mean until near the end the only proof of a crime is the fact that this is a detective story :P .
It doesn't help that the characters keep telling you that they're facing some sort of supercriminal. This isn't Moriarty or [b:Fantômas|657537|Fantômas (Fantômas, #1)|Marcel Allain|https://images.gr-assets.com/books/1360736584s/657537.jpg|643625] or something. Also its hard not to guess a few of the details due to the cultural absorption of the tale.

Listened to an excellent reading by 'David Clarke' on LibriVox. ( )

A long, low moan, indescribably sad, swept over the moor. It filled the whole air, and yet it was impossible to say whence it came. From a dull murmur it swelled into a deep roar, and then sank back into a melancholy, throbbing murmur once again. Stapleton looked at me with a curious expression in his face.

"Queer place, the moor!" said he.
