Listener Opinions

    " I really, really enjoyed 'The Hound of the Baskervilles.' I look forward to reading more of the stories. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Kaffeinator | 2/7/2014

    " Overall it was a solid collection. I thoroughly enjoyed the novels, more than the short stories. The reason for this is that you could tell more time was put into writing the novels, whereas the short stories reminded me of your typical tv episode. The short stories are perfect for when you wanna go to a coffee shop and distract yourself for an hour or so. "

    " Love Sherlock Holmes. Even in this day and age with all the New Detective shows on television, I still enjoy reading this book. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Chet | 1/29/2014

    " I picked this book up more out of curiosity than an actual desire to read it. Sherlock Holmes has maintained a pervasive presence in our culture and I wanted to know why. I think that his popularity stems not from the fact that the adventures are great works of literature but that he was the Jack Bauer his day. The book is entertaining but not to spectacular. It is worth reading to understand its place in our culture if not for its exceptional writing. In fact many of the stories are surprisingly redundant. How many times can an evil step-father try to steal his daughters inheritance anyway? "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Christophe | 1/18/2014

    " I realize now that Sherlock Holmes is a classic character for a reason. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Pamela | 1/15/2014

    " What can you say? It's Sherlock Freakin' Holmes! "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Kaia | 1/11/2014

    " I had a hard time figuring out a rating for this first volume, because I really disliked the first two novels (weird Mormon tangent, anyone?), felt indifferent about a few more, and loved some others (especially Hound of the Baskervilles). On average, my rating probably falls between 3.5 and 4. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Sonja | 1/3/2014

    " Man, I love these books. Sir Doyle is a master of suspense and character development. It's easy for me to escape into 19th century London for a whole night. None of the movies compare to the books. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Richard | 1/1/2014

    " One of my favorite guilty pleasures. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Lydia | 11/25/2013

    " I enjoyed that there were a lot of short stories as opposed to novels. I kept getting sucked into the pages trying to figure out the mystery. I was only able to really stop once the short story ended. If you are looking for something to take you out of reality, this will do it. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Clayton | 11/7/2013

    " How did it take me so long to get into the Holmes stories? They aren't all gems, but they amazingly engaging. Highly recommended to anyone who enjoys good short stories. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Vincent O'Neil | 10/23/2013

    " I devour anything by Doyle. Great to have all the Holmes stuff available in two volumes. Read both straight through. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Alison James | 10/22/2013

    " I love a good mystery! "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Eugenides | 10/21/2013

    " Amazing!!! A must read. It was fantastic. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Sophia | 8/20/2013

    " I never get tired of entering the foggy world of poisons, passions, and pipe tobacco that Sherlock Holmes and his faithful Watson inhabit. As I get older, it's more about the dialogue and the details than the deduction, but the Victorian adventure stories are still charming on their own. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Lisalou | 8/3/2013

    " getting caught up for series 2 of Sherlock. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 John Benson | 7/8/2012

    " What fun to go back and reread this wonderful stuff. Are there any mysteriea written that are not copies of this? "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Anne Ibay | 6/30/2012

    " Currently on The Hound of the Baskervilles. Amazingly written, so easy to see how both Holmes and Watson have become iconic characters in literature. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Daniel | 5/15/2012

    " I've always loved these. This time around I've found that if I first watch Downton Abbey then read Holmes as I'm going to sleep, I get these crazy dreams of steam-punk peerage mystery adventures. Fun! "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Brittany | 3/6/2012

    " Volumes 1 & 2 are my favorite books ever! I just looooooooove them! I rarely read a book twice, but every now and then I pick up one of the volumes to read a story or two because I adore them. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Mandy | 1/14/2012

    " I read volumes 1 and 2 - all 1638 pages - at once. As much as I have always loved Holmes - it was a bit much. The books are wonderful but I certainly recommend smaller doses! "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Allegra | 5/26/2011

    " People often disregard the fact that Doyle was a brilliant author and instead talk about the groundbreaking Holmes--which really is just a testimony to Doyle. I loved these stories and have read every single one of them. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 barnsley | 5/26/2011

    " although i find it a bit over wordy at times, and thyere seems to be LESS detection than i'd always imagined, i'm glad i finally decided to read them. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Pete | 5/7/2011

    " I always wanted to be like Sherlock. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Sarah | 5/7/2011

    " Absolutely brilliant! I cannot wait to read all of them! "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Alan | 5/4/2011

    " This is an excellent story of mystery and suspense, and it provides details of the technology of which existed or was introduced in the time of the nineteenth century. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Andrea | 5/4/2011

    " I really loved reading this book. It is something that could make one's brain work the way Sherlock Holmes's brain works.... it can put one completely in detective's world.. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 shygirl1994 | 5/1/2011

    " Let's face it, who can't love Holmes! =P "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Tricia | 4/28/2011

    " CSI is left in the dust... "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Nick | 4/25/2011

    " Who doesn't love Holmes?

    Like Wuthering Heights, this book is also good in that if you read only the first half, you've already done the best part. The Holmes stories really drop off in quality after Conan Doyle decided to bring him back from the dead for some $$$.

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.
