I love Spike and he always makes me laugh. I especially love his 'According to' series. But this is perhaps the weakest of the series and I got the impression it was written in a great hurry. But it is still definitely worth reading as Spike below full power is still much funnier than most people.

This is a parody of the Sherlock Holmes Case 'The Hound of the Baskervilles', where proverbs are taken at face value and both Holmes and Watson act different than we would expect of them. Even though there are some funny scenes the book didn't live up to my expectations and overall was more weird than funny. ( )
