Arthur Conan Doyle's The Hound of the Baskervilles
It's great to see Arthur Conan Doyle's The Hound of the Baskervilles included in a list of '100 Novels That Shaped Our World' published by the BBC.
We all have our favourite Sherlock Holmes stories - and even though The Hound of the Baskervilles always ranks highly in top 10's and top lists for crime and mystery lovers - it's brilliant to see Sir Arthur in such incredible literary company.
The BBC says...
Stories have the power to change us. We asked a panel of leading writers, curators and critics to choose 100 genre-busting novels that have had an impact on their lives, and this is the result. These English language novels, written over the last 300 years, range from children’s classics to popular page turners. Organised into themes, they reflect the ways books help shape and influence our thinking.
