Conan Doyle meant to stop writing about his famous detective after this short story; he felt the Sherlock Holmes stories were distracting him from more
serious literary

and that "killing" Holmes off was the only way of getting his career back on track.
I really like this story because there are many
classic fighting
part in this story.The other reason I like this because I had watched BBC's movies after I read the book. 10/10.
Main event:

for his safety.
- He travels to London to seek the help of Sherlock Holmes and he accepts the case and travels to Baskerville Hall to investigate.

One of these is the legend of the supernatural hound. (People think this hound has killed Sir Charles and may kill again.)
- Sherlock Holmes takes a long time to unravel this case.
- Finally, he
uncovers the truth and the criminal to solve the terrible crime.
: a short time in London in the late 19th century at Sherlock Holmes rented rooms. However, most of the story takes place on the moors in around Baskerville Hall, a family estate.
Comment:Text to World
People are all worried the supernatural hound will kill people again, it's because the unknown thing makes people afraid in their instinct. The criminal knows this and uses it to kill people.
Score I give to this novel: 9
Reason: I like this novel because it makes me excited what will the author writes next
