Demonjic 1 Boris Demonjic English 12 Mr. Ray 12/5/2007 The Hound of the Baskervilles Summary (1-5): Sir Charles Baskerville has died, leaving a paper with his friend and doctor, James Mortimer. Mortimer reads the paper to Sherlock Holmes and Watson, which tells of the legend of Hugo Baskerville. The legend tells of how black hounds murdered Hugo Baskerville. Watson and Holmes are called in to investigate a murder, and upon arriving they find large hound footprints at the scene of the crime. They were angry that they were called to the investigation late. The crime scene was described in grave detail. The body was found 50 yards away from a summerhouse, and Holmes and Watson are eager to investigate this strange crime. Reaction: I thought the first five chapters were very good. As Holmes and Watson were first introduced, I thought the two opposing personalities were hilarious. Holmes is a very serious person, while Watson believes in the supernatural. The suspense was definitely starting to build up in chapter five, as the murder scene was described, and as Holmes and Watson started their investigation. I thought the descriptions of the scene of the crime were fascinating and really added to the story. The first five chapters were very interesting, and I really enjoyed them. Sentence: “On the contrary, I think we are particularly hot upon the trail, Sir Henry. “ (pg.22) I liked this quote from the book because Holmes is starting to investigate the murder and says that he is hot on the trail of the culprit, which shows he is a good detective.

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
