    " Having read The Hounds of the Baskervilles, I was excited to read these short stories (which I like) of Holmes and Watson. What surprised me most is how modern Holmes seems - his witicisms seem like a modern character. I like that he is a man who likes a variety of things in life - music, reading, and the enjoyment from food and drink. It makes me appreciate Robert Downey Jr.'s portrail of him and makes me eager to see the new BBC production that is said to be good. "

    " I watched it in BBC, Found the show very interesting though they'Ve got some refinement then got the book and i Still loved it and enjoyed reading it. "

    " A classic, which I loved reading, but I can't help it, Benedict Cumberbatch and Martin Freeman are forever Sherlock and Holmes to me now. "

    " Okay, so the only Sherlock Holmes book I had read prior to this was The Hound of the Baskervilles which I thoroughly enjoyed. And then my friends got me into the BBC TV show, Sherlock. And...thus my Sherlock obsession (or addiction) started. So obviously, after watching the first episode, I decided I should read the original stories and so I have! I enjoyed all of the stories, and the solutions always seem so simple even though the problem may seem complex. It's really quite fascinating how Sherlock Holmes can make such deductions and get so much out of so little. I would really recommend this to anyone who just loves reading or loves a good short story because that's what you get! :) "

    " Great narrative and great characters. Too bad these are only short stories.. really addictive short stories! "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Fred | 1/17/2014

    " Good stuff. Most of the stories, even if you did figure out who dunnit, had unpredictable plot twists that made the endings interesting, fresh and kind of realistic. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Amelia | 1/14/2014

    " it was an okay book. sherlock holmes is brilliant and all, very sharp, and the stories are intriguing for the most part, but the way the crimes or mysteries work makes it hard for you as a reader to be involved in solving them because most of the evidence is gleaned from observation of the clients or of the crime scene areas. mostly then that means you're just reading one story after another about a great detective who solves strange and sometimes absurd cases, which is pretty cool, but it does get repetitive after a while. it's a collection of short stories that you read one chapter or story every once in a while. if you read the stories in succession, it makes them seem dull and boring. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Chris May | 1/6/2014

    " I had never read Sherlock Holmes before, but had seen the movies and thought I would give it a shot. These were enjoyable and each case was short. They are all very similar in style, so if you like one, you will like the rest in the series. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Maira | 12/17/2013

    " Very clever, though a lot of the adventures required knowledge of the history of England and I found those a little more difficult to follow. But all the same, I enjoyed reading it very much. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Saman Perera | 8/30/2013

    " Great listen - wonderful narration. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Azucena | 8/11/2013

    " Mi favorito por siempre, puedo leer y re-leer las historias de Sherlock Holmes. Todos los casos son muy inesperados. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Matt Seeker | 8/7/2013

    " These are pretty sweet. I did not realize that Holmes was such a rockstar in the books. My only beef is that after 3 to 5 tales, you start to see the formula and it starts to get a little Law and Order or more precisely, Encyclopedia Brown. Still badass and still worth the read though. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 John Panagiotopoulos | 3/9/2013

    " Excellent books. Loads of fun. ADVENTURE. MYSTERY. SEXUAL INNUENDO. Brilliant. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Paul Blakemore | 2/10/2013

    " 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 Hayden | 1/28/2013

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

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Lorilee | 11/2/2012

    " I have to say that I thought this was just ok. I really thought I was going to love it I would say I really loved, 5 of the stories was bored by the rest. I am glad I read it but I will never read it again. Donated the book. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Kathryn Leonard | 9/27/2012

    " If I could meet Sir Arthur Conan Doyle and shake his hand today I would.When stories can suck you in within the first few sentences you know it's good.Yet another great collection of stories from a phenomenal writer! "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Jean | 7/5/2012

    " always a good read - nice format on the kindle being short stories you can pick up and read in a sitting. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Veronica | 5/24/2012

    " What don't we all love about Sherlock Holmes? "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Shannon | 4/2/2012

    " Very fun read. And because each chapter is a different adventure, it was easier to set down and walk away when needed. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Rosie Tighe | 12/29/2011

    " Wish I'd read "A Study in Scarlet" First, but will rectify that soon. "

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.

About the Narrator

Patrick Tull (1941–2006), born in the United Kingdom, was a multitalented actor of the stage, screen, and television, as well as an award-winning audiobook narrator. He acted in numerous American television shows from 1962 to 1996, including Crossroads, and he had roles in six Broadway plays between 1967 and 1992, including Amadeus. His film credits from 1969 to 1996 included roles as Cecil in Parting Glances and Jerry the bartender in Sleepers. He served as narrator for the television series Sea Tales. He narrated nearly forty audiobooks, and his readings of The Canterbury Tales, The Letter of Marque, Monk’s Hood, The Vicar of Wakefield, and How Green Was My Valley each earned him an AudioFile Earphones Award. His narration of Patrick O’Brian’s Aubrey/Maturin novels was praised by novelist Stephen King as among his ten favorite audiobooks of 2006.
