    " Jordan and I read this out loud together on lazy afternoons. I can't help but hear Robert Downey Junior's voice as I read Sherlock's lines, and somehow, that adds to the entire experience. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Kerstin | 1/29/2014

    " This is a collection of 12 short stories, that were quick and fun to read. I enjoy Watson's point of view, the friendship between him and Holmes and felt rather proud of myself when I figured out the mystery on a couple of occasions before Sherlock did. The stories are fun, interesting and sometimes a little eerie and I can't quite pick a favourite. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Cheyebba | 1/28/2014

    " i Liked it a lot though some stories, particularly the last one, were very predictable. Still a very good read, spell bounding and somewhat fresh among all those vampire stories we are flooded with nowadays. I bow my head to Sir Arthur Conan Doyle "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 William Haynes | 1/27/2014

    " I liked it. It is a rather serious read. A lot of details. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Knittingprimate | 1/24/2014

    " i enjoy sherlock holmes. I try to read one story between the other novels I read. I do, however, this the BBC's modern adaptation of the characters are far more entertaining. I tend to imbue the original holmes with more of cumberbatch's mannerisms than are actually present in the text. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Manuel | 1/20/2014

    " Casos interesantes y entretenidos, pero predecibles. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Nur Wakhid | 1/20/2014

    " Some of the story are boring, but some more worth it! I usually read it again and pick random story "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Xandretta | 1/19/2014

    " Really enjoying the short stories... Fun to finally read these after having so much Sherlock Holmes through out my life. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Jaynessa Campbell | 1/9/2014

    " I actually kinda enjoyed this old classic, I used to avoid classics but I'm finding that some of them really are good reads! "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Annie | 1/7/2014

    " This was my fill-in book while the Kindle was charging. It was pretty good. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Fred | 1/6/2014

    " Good stuff. Most of the stories, even if you did figure out who dunnit, had unpredictable plot twists that made the endings interesting, fresh and kind of realistic. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Jed L | 1/4/2014

    " There are some decent stories in this collection, but for the most part they are too short and not as interesting as I would expect for Holmes works to be. There were a couple that were completely run of the mill type. I expected a lot more from Doyle's other works. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Paula | 12/16/2013

    " A classic in every sense of the word. Each story is entertaining and decidedly brilliant! "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Farai Chikwanha | 12/12/2013

    " A delightful collection of rather fanciful tales. Holmes, as is well known, has brilliant powers of deduction, but sometimes he just seems... too good. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Aditya | 12/11/2013

    " The awesomest piece of detective fiction ever!!! "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Ammon Hallsted | 10/24/2013

    " I think the coolest thing about reading this is finding how many lines from the movies are actually found within the book! The stories are entertaining, but his logic and observational capability are astounding. I've been trying to do the same, and it's amazing what you can find and deduce... "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Renee King - Hooks | 9/17/2013

    " Story about the greatest detective that never was : ) "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Hugodeavila | 6/30/2013

    " A masterpiece. Doyle's style is exceptional, he knows how to keep the readers interest in all stories. If you want to have a very nice time, you gotta read this. Long live Sherlock! "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Sandi | 10/27/2012

    " My all time favorite detective and the best way to get to know him. Truly brilliant writing. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Gillian | 8/4/2012

    " You've got to love a little bit of Sherlock, although admittedly I would prefer Benedict Cumberbatch beguiling me now to the older, more crusty original. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Sarah | 7/21/2012

    " The stories were so good!! Unfortunately, this edition (Ballantine Books copy-write 1975 with introduction from Ellery Queen) is poorly printed with major paragraph mistakes and whole sentences dropped out. I would recommend a different edition! "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Abigail Mchugh | 9/20/2011

    " A good collection. It took awhile for me to get into it. The last 3 stories completely sucked me in! "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Ceri | 6/17/2011

    " Enjoyed it more than I thought I would. The format is kind of cheesy & Holmes is both unbelievable & oddly believable. They are dated but that is part of what makes them interesting. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Naching Kassa | 3/21/2011

    " These are just awesome! Need i say more? "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Lisa Collibee | 1/31/2011

    " Fantastic collection of short stories! One simply can't be a lover of mystery without reading everything by Sir Arthur Conan Doyle. The characters of Sherlock and Watson are truly delightful. This has been my second reading of the book, and I enjoyed it as much as the first go around. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Lauren Droubay | 11/4/2010

    " Chills, jaw dropping, entertains. Once again, Sherlock proves why he is the greatest fictional detective. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Summers | 5/5/2010

    " fun to listen to the old stories! surprising how many modern movies are based on the same premises... "

About the Author

Sir Arthur Conan Doyle (1859–1930) was born of Irish parentage in Scotland. He studied medicine at the University of Edinburgh, but he also had a passion for storytelling. His first book introduced that prototype of the modern detective in fiction, Sherlock Holmes. Despite the immense popularity Holmes gained throughout the world, Doyle was not overly fond of the character and preferred to write other stories. Eventually popular demand won out and he continued to satisfy readers with the adventures of the legendary sleuth. He also wrote historical romances and made two essays into pseudoscientific fantasy: The Lost World and The Poison Belt.
