  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Anna | 2/5/2014

    " Very good collection of stories. Some of them are just marvellous, though a few didn't impress me much. Sherlock Holmes and Dr. Watson are splendid characters, and I like how Conan Doyle adds a lot of details in the narration and gives you a chance to deduce what's happening. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 LonelyRose | 2/3/2014

    " My name is Sherlock Holmes. It is my business to know what other people don't know "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Hayden | 2/1/2014

    " I personally like the longer stories better, but these short stories make for a quick and very interesting read! "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Abbey | 1/26/2014

    " Read from The Complete Sherlock Holmes, Volume I "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Michael Seagriff | 1/19/2014

    " There are few characters that compare to Sherlock Holmes. Every tale was intriguing. I no sooner finished one that I ran to the next. I had forgotten what an enjoyable read this work is. This is another classic that more shuld read. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Beth | 12/12/2013

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Xandretta | 8/12/2012

    " 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 Cj Yow | 5/22/2011

    " This book was really quite excellent. :D The only thing t keeps it from a five-star rating is that some stories weren't nearly as good as others. But I really enjoyed it! It would also have been better had I read this after e first two novels (which came before this collection). "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Trasa | 2/12/2011

    " Love it, love it! I read this quite a long time ago, but it was better than I remembered. Every modern scholar who thinks they know the Sherlock Holmes stories should reread them, especially after seeing the overdone movies. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Abigail | 11/24/2010

    " I absolutely love mysteries and I was thoroughly amused with all of Mr. Holmes' intrigues. Great read! "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Lewis | 2/12/2010

    " So far the first 2 adventures are fun reading. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Paul Blakemore | 6/16/2009

    " Good fun if slightly formulaic. The stories have more of a Gothic spookiness to them then I imagined they would, but it's the character of Holmes that gives these adventures their appeal. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Marghoob | 4/3/2009

    " I spent most of my spare time in eighth grade reading Sherlock Holmes. Loved it. "

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.
