Listener Opinions

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Ryon Warren | 2/12/2014

    " Based on the 'classic' status of the Sherlock Holmes stories, I guess I was expecting more from this. Not a bad read by any means, but I thought it would have been better. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Tara | 2/6/2014

    " This was a fun book and not as slow a read as I always thought Sherlock would be. I haven't read short stories in awhile and it was nice to be able to have a stopping point when I needed to get back to real life. I really enjoyed it! "

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

    " 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! "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Rosie Tighe | 1/14/2014

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

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Travis Griggs | 1/7/2014

    " I liked it! It's almost four star for me. It was engaging enough and well written and like able characters. But I often saw the ends coming. I didn't know whether to feel proud of myself for "seeing through" a Sherlock caliber mystery, or a little let down. Definitely motivated me to go read the longer novels next! "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Alecsandra Velez | 12/31/2013

    " Overall, it is a consistent collection of short stories that play off each well. However, the dialog is what makes the stories stand out. Whatever you may think of the case, the exchanges between Watson and Sherlock are always golden. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Carolyn James | 12/25/2013

    " I enjoyed reading The Adventures of Sherlock Holmes because it contained so many cases in one book. I found myself really engaged trying to figure out if I could solve the mystery before Holmes reveals it all. We learn a lot about Holmes in this book. His family, the cases that beat him, and an introduction to his evil intellectual equal: Moriarty. I was happy to read some clever writing after reading some flops in the past few weeks. Great set of books, great classic characters, overall solid read. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Steph | 12/24/2013

    " Good book.Different stories of Holmes. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Chade66 | 12/20/2013

    " I didn't read this exact book, I read a collection of many of the books. Took me from Jan to Mar to read them. I still don't think the collection I have had all the books, I'll dig around to find out. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Lauren | 11/28/2013

    " Reading them straight through is a little rough and boring because each of the stories follow the same format, but if you take your time going through each one, they're highly entertaining. Nice, light read. Perfect for a bus or tube ride. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Matt Seeker | 11/15/2013

    " 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. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Kelley | 8/10/2013

    " I read this ages ago...when I was but an egg. But Sherlock stands to time and Doyle has a very interesting way into a story. But you should read the Hound of the Baskervilles first. That first chapter is all you will ever need to know about critical thinking. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Evelyn | 8/7/2013

    " Each story is like a puzzle. Very intriguing. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Lyle West | 6/21/2013

    " 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. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Emma | 5/6/2013

    " Wonderful! Sir Arthur Conan Doyle is really and truly a master of mystery. However, there were only about 1 or 2 unmemorable stories amongst the 12. Otherwise, Conan Doyle has kept me enthralled, and the characters of Sherlock Holmes and John Watson are stunningly written. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Alex | 4/24/2013

    " Rereading for the umpteenth time... All time greats; Holmes at his best. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Jessie | 2/15/2013

    " "The Red-Headed League" is one of the weirdest and most fantastic things you'll ever read. Who comes up with this stuff?? Sir Arthur Conan Doyle, that's who. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Doreen | 7/17/2012

    " My library lady recommended Sherlock Holmes. These are quick and witty reads. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Preston | 7/10/2012

    " Pretty good novel, it was one of those classics I always meant to get around and read. The only drawback is that as a reader you aren't always presented with sufficient information to solve the mystery that Sherlock Holmes encounters but otherwise it is a great read. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Erin Bennett | 1/5/2012

    " What can I say- how can you not like Sherlock Holmes? he's witty, he's brilliant, and slightly nuts. "

    " it's an interesting book! it is a book meant for mysterious(genre) readers... "

    " BBC Radio plays, both amazing AND homoerotic as the day is long. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Sydney | 5/29/2011

    " it was amazing how he solved some of those mysteries "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Ram | 5/27/2011

    " probably the greatest detective fiction of all time - anytime read, multiple time read as well - Sherlock Holmes will never go out of fashion. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Homa | 5/26/2011

    " This book was the most amusing book i had read this year "

    " Each story is quite clever and entertaining, they are pretty addicting to me, once you finish one its hard not to go on to another. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Mollie | 5/19/2011

    " A collection of wonderful stories featuring our beloved Sherlock Holmes and his dear friend Watson. I very much enjoy the criminal and non-criminal mysteries that are featured in these further works of Doyle's and intend to continue my love affair with the Memoirs. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Anne | 5/16/2011

    " What a great read! I love the mysteries, the characters, and the dialog has made me laugh out loud several times. I will have to work my way through the whole series now that I know how great these are. "

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.
