    " I love a good mystery and it was my favorite genre as a kid. I found that when I started it earlier this evening I couldn't stop reading it. An easy read. Can't wait to discuss it. "

    " I read this in middle school. I remember reading it, but I don't remember much about the book. Will probably re-read this at some point. "

    " I read this as a teen, and reading it now as an adult it doesn't really hold up as a mystery. This time I read a heavily annotated version, and I don't really think Holmes nailed it. Great atmosphere, though "

    " Very fun. Though I'm a sucker for books written in the old-timey Victorian English speech. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Lindsey | 4/27/2011

    " Its ok, i dont recommend it but it is 10 billion times better then 20 thousand leaguse under the sea!! its good if you are looking for a mature mystery. "

    " First time reading Sherlock Holmes, but I am very familiar with the character beyond that and I enjoyed reading this story very much so. I am going to look into more books with Sherlock Holmes for sure after reading this. "

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.
