The Memoirs of Sherlock Holmes are overshadowed by the event with which they close - the meeting of the great detective and Moriarty, the Napoleon of Crime. When The Final Problem was first published, the struggle between Holmes and his arch nemesis, seemingly to the death, left many readers desolate at the loss of Holmes, but it also led to his immortality as a literary figure. The stories that precede it included two narratives from Holmes himself - on a mutiny at sea and a treasure hunt in a Sussex country house - as well as a meeting with his brilliant brother, Mycroft.

Included in The Memoirs of Sherlock Holmes are Silver Blaze, The Yellow Face, The Stock-Broker's Clerk, The Gloria Scott, The Musgrave Ritual, The Reigate Puzzle, The Crooked Man, The Resident Patient, The Greek Interpreter, The Naval Treaty, and The Final Problem.

    " The Adventures of Sherlock Holmes was my introduction to the Sherlock Holmes series.There are 12 short stories, all of them marvelous and enjoyable. Definitely worth reading. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Cheyebba | 1/31/2014

    " i Liked it a lot though some stories, particularly the last one, were very predictable. Still a very good read, spell bounding and somewhat fresh among all those vampire stories we are flooded with nowadays. I bow my head to Sir Arthur Conan Doyle "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Gina | 1/26/2014

    " This made an excellent audiobook: British narrator, strong exposition, and the twists keep you guessing. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Matt Gerhard | 1/19/2014

    " This is a great book, One of many books by Sir Conan Doyle about his observational detective Sherlock Holmes. This particular collection has 12 different stories, all from the perspective of Watson. My Personal favorite of the stories included is five orange pips, one of the better more intriguing tales of Holmes. But honestly my biggest problem with this book, and it is a small one, is how Doyle writes it creates this dragging feeling making it hard to read massive amounts at one time. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 John Sherman | 1/16/2014

    " These short stories are fun to read and brilliantly written. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Nam Nguyen | 1/12/2014

    " There is definitely a reason why this is a classic. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Alisha Purcell | 1/11/2014

    " Loved it! Loved it even more because it was on Amazon for free. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Abbey | 1/9/2014

    " Read from The Complete Sherlock Holmes, Volume I "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Cassi | 12/23/2013

    " This is a fun collection of Sherlock Holmes stories. I felt myself wanting the stories to keep going. These are great to read while lazing in bed. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Ringo | 11/2/2013

    " 12 cute short stories remind me of 'Detective Conan' in every way. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Gray | 10/25/2013

    " Great and entertaining book. The stories, short in length, contain original perplexing mysterious. Sherlock Holmes is truly the master of observation and deductive reasoning. Highly recommended. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Erika | 10/12/2013

    " Sherlock Holmes just isn't really my thing. Kinda rote. Kinda sexist. Important because it developed the formula used a gazillion times over that makes reading it feel like you've read it before. But not my favorite in terms of classics. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Kelley | 9/30/2013

    " 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. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Farai Chikwanha | 9/22/2013

    " A delightful collection of rather fanciful tales. Holmes, as is well known, has brilliant powers of deduction, but sometimes he just seems... too good. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Eileen | 8/2/2013

    " The only thing is you have to get past the language at first. It's a little thick at times, which slows down reading. But it's worth it. So good! "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Beth | 6/10/2013

    " Witty, smart and excellent mysteries. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Stephen | 5/2/2013

    " Brilliant because I love Holmes but not all the adventures grabbed me. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Rachel Taylor | 10/20/2012

    " I haven't read all of the stories, only 4 of them. I quite liked them, however some stories seemed a bit too abstract for me. Other stories amazed me and were unexplainable. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Trasa | 8/9/2012

    " Love it, love it! I read this quite a long time ago, but it was better than I remembered. Every modern scholar who thinks they know the Sherlock Holmes stories should reread them, especially after seeing the overdone movies. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Angelo Jamerlan | 6/20/2012

    " One thing I love about Sherlock Holmes is the Victorian flair it presents during its time. This coupled with my love for mystery and thrills makes this a classic well worth the read. "
