    " An interesting read, some short stories that give a good insight into Holmes and my first taste of reading Holmes and makes me want to read a lot more. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 JoEllen | 1/4/2014

    " Sherlock Holmes stories are a lot of fun. Mark and I read these aloud before we had a tv and the short stories are the perfect length for a bit of entertainment. He is not a perfect hero (conceited, addicted...), but it adds to the tales. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 L.H. Rae | 11/10/2013

    " So glad I finally finished this. While it happens often that I find myself unable to put down a book after reading on the train and have to resort to reading while walking (like Belle), I confess that it happened again while reading this one. Multiple times. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Ammon Hallsted | 4/15/2013

    " I think the coolest thing about reading this is finding how many lines from the movies are actually found within the book! The stories are entertaining, but his logic and observational capability are astounding. I've been trying to do the same, and it's amazing what you can find and deduce... "

    " Awfully pedestrian by today's standards, I think. Sir Arthur did not keep my attention for too long, although I did enjoy a brief stop in his world. "

    " The stories were so good!! Unfortunately, this edition (Ballantine Books copy-write 1975 with introduction from Ellery Queen) is poorly printed with major paragraph mistakes and whole sentences dropped out. I would recommend a different edition! "

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.
