    " Have I mentioned these stories are so clever? This one is no exception :) Fun, fun, fun! "

    " Well I couldn't really get into this one at all, despite how short it was. Not one of my favorites. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Morgan | 2/8/2014

    " I figured out what was going on which means that obviously something was wrong with this story. Four stars I'm afraid. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Collin A. | 1/13/2014

    " As for the second adventure, I felt the plot was a tad generic. The humorous encyclopedia incident did add a touch of humor to the tale, as evidenced by the pawnbroker's bumbling personality and appearance. However, I felt this adventure was a little "out if league" in comparison with others. Pun intended. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Pedro Martinez | 1/12/2014

    " In his second short story published, Sherlock Holmes resolves the craziest bank heist ever "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Kt | 1/2/2014

    " Good mystery--I liked the red-head focus :) but kind of predictable to be honest "

    " Alas! great mind Mr. Sherlock Holmes! "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Staci | 10/23/2013

    " Another Sherlock Holmes story; this one starts out seeming like one thing is the mystery when in fact it is something completely different. Not as many clues in this one; hard to imagine anyone but Sherlock Holmes could have figured it out. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Marisa | 10/15/2013

    " Sherlock Holmes is beloved by all.......except me. I feel like all of these stories are bland and they take me forever to read. I am able to follow to story but i feel like I do not want to. I love mystery and suspense novels but these just aren't for me. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Nguyen Tran | 2/20/2013

    " Beautiful reasoning, beautiful description of details. Every single piece of information ties together very well "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Ruthie Jones | 6/22/2011

    " This mystery is easy to figure out well before the ending, but it is such a fun little story. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 sis | 3/18/2011

    " reading holmes now brings me to mind of benedict cumberbatch's sherlock, and not basil rathbone as it used to. good or bad as that may be! "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Doreen | 1/5/2011

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Lani | 3/14/2010

    " My first foray into Sherlock Holmes novels. It was entertaining enough but pretty formulaic. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Kelly | 2/16/2010

    " This one is entertaining but not as good as some of the other Sherlock stories. I say 3.5 stars! "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Kivrin | 2/5/2010

    " I really enjoyed this book. I like the way Doyle writes--very crisp, very precise. Now, I'm going to pick up some of the longer books at the library. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Joe | 9/13/2008

    " The classic stories, the ones that really consolidated Holmes popularity, and also the ones that confirmed me as a fan. This collection probably has more of the best stories Doyle wrote for Holmes than any other single collection. They are all good, but this is the best "

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.
