Classics in Brief

These are the books you SHOULD have read… but didn’t. Or maybe you read them, but it was 20 years ago… and everything you learned 20 years ago took a backseat to figuring out your Friday night plans.

We get it. That’s why we’re introducing our newest book club, Classics in Brief. With the help of our super-well-read-and-educated staff (a.k.a. Manager Wayne), we’re going to choose some of the great Classics of literature… all kept short.  Just because you might not have time to read War and Peace doesn’t mean you can’t read ANY Tolstoy! Stay tuned as we work our way through a range of old and new classics that won’t monopolize your reading list!

Sir Arthur Conan Doyle's The Hound of the Baskervilles gripped readers when it was first serialised and has continued to hold its place in the popular imagination to this day. Could the sudden death of Sir Charles Baskerville have been caused by the gigantic ghostly hound that is said to have haunted his family for generations? Arch-rationalist Sherlock Holmes characteristically dismisses the theory as nonsense. And, immersed in another case, he sends Dr Watson to Devon to protect the Baskerville heir and observe the suspects at close hand. 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.
