    " This collection of Holmes tales is better than the other collections I have read thus far. Some of my favorite stories were The Musgrave Ritual, The Naval Treaty, The Reigate Puzzle and of course The Final Problem. The stories seem to be a bit darker and more in depth. There are a handful of things that still annoy me about Doyle's writing style, but I think I am just at the point where I can ignore them and just enjoy the story. "

    " Ok not spectacular but the simplicity of the way sherlock handles the cases made it compelling to read.. Go for it "

    " As always, Holmes is comfort food for the mind! "

    " Just my Favourite Collection of books that has not maintained all of it's brilliance to this day. "

    " A bit difficult to categorize. Some of the stories were quite enjoyable, and I especially liked Sherlock's brother Maycroft. However I was very unsatisfied with the final story. I had been waiting for the appearance of Moriarty; I expected him to appear here and there, or as the main antagonist in a story before their final confrontation. But instead we see nothing; Sherlock simply says that he is the 'Napoleon of crime' and behind all big crimes in London. Yet we have no stories or examples. We never even see Moriarty, he is only mentioned. The story felt too quickly slapped together. Man, Doyle must have really hated Sherlock at this point. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Cynthia | 1/18/2014

    " Some stories were quite good, some just okay - but Sherlock fatigue may have set in as I listened to The Adventures and the Memoirs back to back. I can't believe Moriarty appears mainly just in the last story! I would have liked to actually hear about the cat and mouse game they had going, instead of just being told Moriarty was Sherlock's equal. "

    " I loved the last story in this collection. The rest of the stories were kind of hit-and-miss when compared to previous Holmes stories. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Lisa Knobel | 3/25/2013

    " I have been emjoying reading the Sherlock Holmes series. This one in particular made me think that modern shows like The Mentalist are just cheap rip offs of the original. "

    " It was great to read such a famous classic, and wonderful to finally read the original version after my obsession with the TV show! "

    " versi bahasa inggris pernah saya punyai tapi entah hilang kemana, karena Sherlock Holmes salah satu tokoh detektif favorit saya, akhirnya hanya mengoleksi yang versi bahasa indonesia. Seperti biasa, Sir Arthur mampu membuat sosok Sherlock Holmes begitu nyata di "dunia" saya.... "

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.
