Listener Opinions

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Zvia | 2/13/2014

    " I really enjoyed this book, even if I much prefer a novel to a short story collection. I thought it would be boring to keep reading short stories about various cases, but I got really into it after the first few. Great read! "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Stella Sillada | 2/11/2014

    " Very mind-boggling. I always feel so stupid after reading every case, and why wouldn't I, this is freakin' Sherlock Holmes we're talking about. Prepare your brain before reading. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Aarohi Jain | 2/4/2014

    " An excellent collection of mysteries with a unique twist in every case "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Kasia James | 2/4/2014

    " I wanted to read this book to see if it lived up to all the hype and subsequent remakes. In te end, I whipped through it so fast it never even made lit on to my 'Currently reading' list. The stories are genuinely engaging and beleivable, and you almost never guess the ending. A lovely collecton of stories. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Hanna | 2/1/2014

    " Read this book for a book report in school, loved it. There's not just one long story, its separated into 3 adventure stories which i think is really cool. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Marghoob | 1/29/2014

    " I spent most of my spare time in eighth grade reading Sherlock Holmes. Loved it. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Emilia | 1/24/2014

    " Great book, can't get enough of Holmes and Watson's Adventures "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Jennifer | 1/18/2014

    " This short story collection has some of my favorite Holmes tales, especially because several of them are not murders. My particular favorite is "The Red-Headed League," which may be my favorite mystery primarily because it's so bizarre. I also love "A Scandal in Bohemia" (of course), "The Adventure of the Speckled Band," "The Adventure of the Engineer's Thumb," and "The Adventure of the Copper Beeches" (another really strange story). I had a "Great Illustrated Classics" of this collection when I was about 11, and I found the abriged stories perfect for someone just graduating from Nancy Drew/Hardy Boys. Of course, when you read it unabridged, you get more of the relationship betweeen Holmes and Watson (which changes drastically in this book, because Watson has gotten married). All in all, excellent reading and lots of fun. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Annette McIntyre | 1/16/2014

    " A collection of tales from Sherlock Holmes. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Gillian | 12/27/2013

    " You've got to love a little bit of Sherlock, although admittedly I would prefer Benedict Cumberbatch beguiling me now to the older, more crusty original. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Joao Vaz | 12/21/2013

    " This is the book to read while using public transportation: a collection of short, light and captivating stories! Definitely the fastest way to get home. I'd have liked it better had Sherlock entwined with the stories more. Still, well worth a read. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Meg | 12/16/2013

    " After a while the formulaic nature of each story gets to be a bit boring. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Katie | 12/7/2013

    " I had never read any of the Sherlock Holmes stories and so I thought I'd start. The stories were usually pretty interesting and good at keeping my attention. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 beentsy | 4/11/2013

    " Excellent! My Watson & Sherlock crush continues. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Elizabeth | 7/22/2012

    " 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. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Siou | 7/21/2012

    " Well written and perhaps interesting, but definitely not my type of book! "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Shannon | 6/9/2012

    " 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 Saman Perera | 4/17/2012

    " Great listen - wonderful narration. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Miranda Carbaugh | 11/19/2011

    " This was my first Sherlock Holmes novel and/or short story and I thought it was ok. I felt like the plot lines could have been a lot more complex. I am hoping I can get into the actual novels more than the short stories. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Paveshen | 6/16/2011

    " I love Sherlock Holmes. The outdated language makes it a bit harder to read but the dictionary available on ipad provides meanings to long lost words. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Rubina | 5/21/2011

    " 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. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Rhiannon Hart | 5/14/2011

    " ADORED. These stories just haven't dated. I love their concise telling and descriptions. Managed to guess a few outcomes but were baffled by others. Listened to the librivox recording and I can recommend it. (Even my non-bookish boyf loved these tales.) "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Niko | 5/12/2011

    " One of my all-times favorites since childhood. "

    " benar2 teka teki yang takterpikirkan oleh qu.......pengarang yang sungguh pintar...hebat lah "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Jane | 4/23/2011

    " You really can't go wrong with Sherlock Holmes. I read all of these ages ago when I was a kid... and they're still just as entertaining now as they were then. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Raka | 4/22/2011

    " Classic and fun. I enjoyed all the stories, especially The Final Problem. This book is interesting as it develops Sherlock's character a little more. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Karla | 4/3/2011

    " Better than the TV series? Yes, by a long shot. I adore Holmes and this book was not exception. Oh, to live in Victorian London! "

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.
