    With such an ambitious, and in some aspects arrogant, title Pierre Bayard was always going to have to write a very convincing analysis Which in my opinion he managed to do while also throwing in a hint of literary criticism of a type I had not paid attention to as of yet And while such things appeared at first disconnected from his analysis he managed to pull everything back together by the end to throw the entire case on its head Bayard for the first half of the book begins with a recap of past events This is the taxing and uninteresting aspect of his work And when he leaves The Hounds of the Baskervilles to talk about how he developed a mode of detective criticism for use on Hamlet and The Murder of Roger Ackroyd serves to do little but tell how good Bayard is at solving mysteries the writers cannot However once you pass through this unnecessary hurdle the true magic of Bayard s analysis appears.He begins by breaking down Holmes method through drawing attention to passages from both The Hound of the Baskervilles and other notable stories in the canon Through quotes and references he quickly reveals the subtle flaws behind Holmes technique.Bayard also indicates that since the crime is observed from Watson s point of view all observation of clues and suspects is tainted by his opinion This of course influences the way the reader observes the case in the end.The next part in the investigation involves a look...

    Holmes war ein blutiger Anf ngerWirklich faszinierend Die Aufz hlung so vieler Fehler, die Holmes im Laufe seiner Ermittlungen gemacht hat Kaum zu glauben, dass so jemand einen solchen Ruf haben kann Aber Holmes Macken berspielen seine Inkompetenz grandios, das muss man ihm zugestehen.Wie bei vielen B chern Bayards gibt es Missverst ndnisse viele Leser meinen, dass es Bayard darum gehe, Holmes oder Conan Doyle in Misskredit zu bringen, aus Neid, Arroganz, Besserwisserei oder sonst einem niederen Motiv Doch in Wahrheit nutzt Bayard immer wieder solche frechen Thesen, um literaturwissenschaftliche Theorien knallig zu verpacken Subjektivit t auf allen literarischen Ebenen Autor Erz hler Protagonist Leser , die Stilfigur des unzuverl ssigen Erz hlers und die Idee, dass sich Texte vom Autor und vom Leser l sen und ihr Eigenleben aufnehmen, das ein eigenes l ckenhaftes Universum bildet, das in sich analysiert werden kann, werden unter anderem in diesem Buch behandelt Wo endet Realit t und beginnt Fiktion Und gehen beide nicht irgendwie ineinander ber Besonders fasziniert mich diese letzte These, die Bayard von Thomas Pavel aufgreift Eigentlich ist sie, so verr ckt sie sich auf den ersten Blick anh ren mag, doch irgendwie plausibel f r mich ist beispielsweise B...

    I can t quite decide if this is a perfect example of tongue in cheek meta criticism, or a nutty rereading padded with chapters of justification that essentially sum up to It s my opinion, so it can t be wrong I suggest skipping to the last chapter and just enjoying Bayard s reworking of the...

    I m going to chalk much of my distaste for this book due to bad translation The flow of language is terrible, making this a difficult read for me from the start.Another large part of my distaste is the sheer arrogance of the author that drips from every page Holmes was arrogant, too, but his was derived from his success in solving problems where others where having trouble discerning the mere existence of an issue Holmes also showed a humble side numerous times Pierre Bayard exemplifies the stereotype the Anglophone world has of the French snide, arrogant and dismissive.He spends too much of the book retelling the story in a most pedestrian and boring manner, boldly poking the reader with quick jabs about the original conclusion while telling us that all will be revealed later I don t know if this was a nod to the way Holmes worked in the original stories, but Bayard lacks the charm of the former Bayard does pick up on one thing that s quite apparent Holmes was fixated on Stapleton from the very beginning Bayard s problem is that he keeps harping on it rather than allowing the Great Detective this one idiosyncrasy His conclusion is just as forced as he claims the original one is, reading into Doyle s writing in a way only a psychologist can At the end, I m left with wondering why I plodded through this and why it took me so long to read less than 200 pages I give this book two stars simply because it wasn t boring in the sense that I wanted to fini...

    Eigentlich eine sch ne Idee f r einen 100 Seiten Essay, leider auf 200 Seiten aufgebl ht Das erste Viertel enth lt eine sicher hilfreiche Zusammenfassung des Doyle Romans, das letzte Viertel enth lt das, was der Titel verspricht Eine alternative Deutung der Handlung.Dazwischen findet sich wenig Interessantes, das daf r oft wiederholt, und der immer wieder vor sich her getragene Stolz auf die eigene Erfindung der Kriminalkritik , das Prinzip, Krimis anders zu lesen als vorgesehen als sei das nicht erstens ohnehin dem Krimi inh rent denn dort gibt es ja schon traditionell zwei Geschichten, die wirkliche und die dem Leser vorgegaukelte und zweitens eine ber hundert Jahre alte Tradition 1911 begann Ronald Knox mit Studies in the Literature of Sherlock Holmes das, was Holmes Aficionados The Game nennen Die Werke gegen den Strich lesen, Fehler entdecken Seit 1946 ver ffentlicht das Baker Street Journal Aufs tze dazu, und zu L cken und Unklarheiten in The Hound of the Baskervilles gibt es etliche Auch au erhalb des Holmes Kanons oder Krimigenres gibt es viele hnliche Werke Interessant ist Bayards Beitrag dazu allemal Aber das Ignorieren jeglicher anderer Beitr ge zum Thema st rt die Emporhebung herk mmli...

    Sadly, this is not a very amusing read Unlike The Physics of Superheroes , a book with a similar idea of applying real world reasoning to a world of fiction, this book takes itself a bit too seriously I will say however that when Bayard s version of the crime was fleshed out in the final chapters I could not disagree with his findings Annoying as it is, his theory does make a lot of sense.That having been said, his overall reasoning is flawed at best He makes assumptions based apparently solely on the french translation of the book Which is, like the language itself, slightly romanticized and makes allusions to the moon and the apparent wolf like properties of the Great Detective and are not apparent in the original English One would think Bayard would have omitted such parts had he found they dd not fit in with the original novel, as his reasoning stems a lot from how he believes Doyle felt about his creation than the narrative itself at times While there are, as previously s...

    This slim volume takes a clever idea re solving the mystery of the House of the Baskervilles and pads it out in an attempt to be able to justify the idea being presented as a full book instead of a single essay Bayard expounds on literary theories of whether or not fictional characters can do things without the author knowing handled pretentiously here much cleverly done in the fictional universes of Jasper Fforde , he has a tediously long chapter on whether or not Sherlock Holmes makes mistakes um, yes , he actually has a chapter where he recaps other books he s written Each of these things might have been useful to touch on in an introduction, but expanding each out to its own chapter feels like clawing for page space.The re solving of the mystery itself is pretty great, albeit a fairly small part of the total book It takes a lot of things that didn t quite sit right with me when I was reading the novel, and fits them together in an alternate theor...

    I made the mistake of thinking this book was a parody Unfortunately, it was not.While touted as a love letter to crime novels, this book seeks to destroy one of the best loved crime novels Basically, I got the impression that the author genuinely dislikes the Hound of the Baskervilles and wanted to re write the novel how he thought it should be written, because obviously Sir Arthur Conan Doyle the author didn t actually know who committed the crime On top of that, the author spent a lot of time trying to discredit Sherlock Holmes, not only during this mystery, but most of his work While trying to show how ridiculous his deductions were during the book, he credits other fictional work as scientific proof The book is slow going considering much of the book is either a summary of the ACD story or whole portions of the actual text.One thing not mentioned in the summary is that this reads like a book needed to pass a psychology class, the author attempting to explai...

    Part literary criticism and fiction theory and part a dissection of Holmes deductions While the author has some plausible reasoning for who the real murderer was, he neglects explaining a major clue involving the ancestry of the novel s victims and killer which renders his argument insufficient While readers interested primarily interested in the analysis of HOUNd might find the literary criticism and fictio...
