    " The Adventures of Sherlock Holmes was enjoyable from beginning to end. You can't help but see the influence of these mysteries on modern writers. The twists for the most part were fairly predictable, but I wonder if that's only because so many television shows have taken inspiration from the Holmes stories. I was much more interested in the development of the character of Holmes and Watson, and I think that's what still fascinates readers of today. Doyle gives little teasing glimpses into the mind and life of Holmes, but his inner life and background are more of a mystery than the people he is investigating. I certainly think this book is worth a read. "

    " Well, to start with, I am not quite a fan of short stories. I like detailed, long, never-ending stories. Not ones that start as soon as they finish. It's not that the book was not entirely good but the stories, since too short and simple, could almost all be guessed, which was unexpected. Being too short, they sounded almost like the writer was in a hurry to finish them up and make it as short as possible. ._. The suspense and the 'adventure' was mostly missing. As a conclusion, this book is for you if you have nothing better to do in the world and like to read short little simple narratives, really. "

    " Conan Doyle is a master; most people know Sherlock Holmes and the much underrated Dr Watson through film and television and if you don't actually know them from the stories and novels then I thoroughly recommend that you become acquainted. "

    " awesome. Sherlock and his stories are perfect for me. I'm going to read this all the way through and start on my brain skills. Definitely my favorite book so far. A lot better than Middle Passage. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Dick Humphries | 5/15/2013

    " What fun reading. He really puts me to try to solve the case. My Daughter gave this to me for a birthday and I finished it and needed to add it to books read. It was so fun. I loved it. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Bob | 5/1/2013

    " I'm pleased to say that by the 8th story I had begun to figure out the difference between "seeing" and "observing," as Holmes says, and to get the outcome even before Holmes announced it! Fun light reading. "

    " Great story telling of a genius at his craft. "

    " The stories never get dated. Sir Arthur Conan Doyle's prose is masterful. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Denise | 12/21/2012

    " Finally got around to finishing this - highly entertaining collection of 12 stories, with Holmes being as brilliant as usual. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Jacque Hodges (Carter) | 4/29/2012

    " I enjoyed these short stories much more than I thought I would. I really liked the Robert Downey Jr. movies and was pleasantly surprised at how closely they seemed to cast his role to that of Doyle's Sherlock.Sometimes movie renditions of literary characters are way off the mark. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Mrigank | 5/13/2009

    " it was a spectacular book to read back in the good old school days "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Ken Savage | 4/29/2009

    " I should have read some Holmes a long time ago. Brilliant and engrosing "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Jason Canada | 1/23/2009

    " Hello, Irene. we only meet you in the first story but the impact you make on us. swamp adders and peg legs; bachelor kings and watson's wife. "

    " Not what I had thought, given the old b&w movies and cultural stereotype. Much better and love the short story format. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Kelly Higgins | 3/28/2008

    " I am enjoying this book so far. Some stories in the book are better than others. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Brandon | 8/17/2006

    " Not particularly exciting as they're all short stories, but quite well written and Sherlock Holmes is always cool. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Paul Blakemore | 11/28/2005

    " 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. "

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.
