    " Not a big fan of short stories and I found them very predictable. "

    " I read these a long, long time ago, as a young teenager and enjoyed them. Reading them again as an adult is, so far, just as enjoyable, if not a little more. Sherlock Holmes is one of my favorite literary characters of all time. "

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

    " Sherlock Holmes, are a cluster of short stories written by Sir Arthur Conan Doyle between eighteen-ninety-two and nineteen-o-five. Set in the late ninetieth century England Mr. Holmes accompanied by his loyal partner, Doctor John Watson, tackle the most unusual cases that stroll through their joint apartment of 221b Baker Street. Dragging Watson into these adventures, (which he eventually started to appreciate and love), Holmes would use his skills of deduction, scientific theory, and near flawless memory to arrive to the final conclusion that would solve the case. Readers that are drawn to literature, which contains outstanding vocabulary, intricate detail, and a series of overlaying plots and relationships, will be duly satisfied with this book. Though the legendary writing of Sir Arthur Conan Doyle is not the primary selling point. The primary points are the puzzles. The involvement. One trying their own hands at deduction, trying to solve these elusive mysteries. Sifting through facts. Rereading passages to find deeper meanings. Desperately attempting to determine the root of the problem, to identify the murderer, the thief. One toils in the wake of such a delicate tease. Then, either proving one’s truth, or uncovering the answer Conan, (through Holmes, through Watson) does so with simple brilliance. Now Watson and Holmes’ relationship is also another highlight of this book. While on their strenuous, (on the mind, and on the body) adventure cases, this brotherly bond is tested to various extremes, which displays the emotional fortitude between these men. Not know is how Holmes and Watson originally met, or how they attained such a strong friendship. But as the stories progress, the friendship grows even stronger. There are many qualities of this book that would appeal to advanced readers; versed deeply in the English language and it’s vocabulary, and people who enjoy the puzzle of the stories. For some, this book might not be appealing. It could be a step outside of their reading level. Also, the style of writing (of which it is quite slowly paced in comparison to closer to modern literature) could be unappealing due to its slow pace or some would say it is plainly boring. For some, mystery novels simply might not be their cup of tea, and should not choose to choose this book. In the entirety of itself, Sir Arthur Conan Doyle’s “Sherlock Holmes” is a bench mark for mystery-crime novels. A pioneer in the background, these stories are the original genius pieces that first spiked the now worldwide love of crime-mystery dramas. So hey there must be some value in em’ eh? "

    " A great book! Watson relates Holmes' cases in a fascinating manner, revealing the idiosyncrasies that make up Sherlock Holmes bit by bit. It's easy to see where many popular mystery and detective stories got their influence. A great book. By the way: I listened to this as a book on tape - and I highly recommend it! Each chapter is a different story, so you can take as much time as you need between chapters and still thoroughly enjoy the tales. "

    " I didn't think I would, but I throughly enjoy this book! Just because it is old doesn't mean that it isn't adventure and mystery packed. It's a classic for a reason. You should read this book! "

    " Fun to read and fun to compare to the current PBS series "Sherlock". Any body of work that remains popular for so many years and influences so many new works must be the work of a genius. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Joyce | 8/9/2012

    " Actually the book that I read was the Gutenberg Project version which consists of 12 short stories in ebook format. The stories were entertaining, but didn't interest me enough to go and read any more Sherlock Holmes stories. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Maira | 7/24/2012

    " 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. "

    " Not bad. Probably could have not read it and felt like I wasn't missing out on too much. "

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.
