    " Sherlock Holmes is one of the best book i had ever read. The excitement on how he, Sherlock Holmes, the greatest detective could even solve a case with the slightest clue. In this books there are many stories or events happening. The stories inclue the Scandal in Bohemia, The Red headed League, A Case of Identity, The Boscombe Valley Mystery, The fFive Orange Pips, The Man With the Twisted Lips, The Adventure of the Blue Carbuncle, The Adventure of the Speckled Band, The Adventure of the Engineer's Thumb, The Adventure of the Noble Bachelor, The Adventure of the Beryl Coronet, and the Adventure of the Copper Beeches. My favorite one would be the The Adventure of the Beryl Coronet because i find it the most interesting. In this story a banker was given a precious necklace in which cause a lot of money. Then he needs to secure it, one day he finds his own son holding it with 3 diamods missing. His son was thrown in jail, and he wouldn't say a word. Then this banker came to Sherlock Holmes to ask for help. Then Sherlock Holmes went to this house, he was able to solve it in a short period of time. But the Coronet is still missing. To find out where the coronet went you should try to read the book, along with the rest of the stories. "

    " Sherlock Holmes was waaay better than everyone said! I put off reading it for years because everyone kept going on about how dry and boring it was, but I found it to be very entertaining. Possibly because I was envisioning Robert Downey Jr. and Jude Law instead of the traditional tweed-clad Sherlock?! :) "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Nicole Lucas | 1/25/2014

    " Every story was wonderful! Holmes is a genius and Dr. Watson is a great partner for him. They are all fantastic. You can read it all at once or just a few at a time. You will love them all. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Caitlin Griffin | 1/16/2014

    " maybe it's because I'm obsessed with Sherlock, but I ship Sherlock/John so hard, even while reading. "

    " The game, as they say, is afoot! What can be said about these that hasn't already? The only thing missing are the wonderful Strand illustrations. I think my favorite story in this book is The Speckled Band. Very creepy. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Meghan | 9/27/2013

    " I read this adapted version for children to my boys at bedtime. Sherlock Holmes really captured their attention! They liked the challenge of trying to figure out what was really going on in each of the 5 mysteries. I recommend! "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Cathrine | 4/9/2013

    " Love the old language. Many words I had to look up in a dictionary, but I think that is part of the charm. Love that it is a collection of short stories, which makes it perfect for bedside reading for someone like me that has a difficulty in putting away good books when I start to read. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Maggie | 1/22/2013

    " piece by piece over the decades, i've read sherlock holmes stories. finally i have read an entire collection of them. always fun. is it really deductive reasoning as sherlock claims? or is it really inductive reasoning that he uses to come to his conclusions? "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Vivi | 1/13/2013

    " I listened to the Librivox podcast of this book while at work describing corn, and really enjoyed it. My roommates and I enjoyed watching the BBC series Sherlock together, so I thought I might enjoy reading the inspiration for the show and getting to know Sherlock better. "

    " I wasn't a big fan of the serialized style of these stories. They were so repetitive I had trouble getting through this (and eventually gave up halfway through). I imagine the novels are better reads. "

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.
