    " So far, I love it. Never read any Holmes before and it's great. "

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

    " Thoroughly entertaining. The stories become a bit predictable as you read more of them. Some are very short, even the showdown with Moriarty is shorter than I expected. The longer ones tend to be better.

    It makes me wish I lived in the 19th century.

    Now I need volume two... "

    " a fun read. read a little at a time "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Karl | 2/25/2011

    " The works of Sir Arthur Conan Doyle have held up remarkably well. They remain eminently reasonable. Sure, some aspects are a bit dated - phrenology, for instance, is a bit out of vogue. But overall these remain timely and enjoyable works. "

    " really great stories, can't believe I waited this long in life to read them "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Leanne | 2/16/2011

    " It was a very good book. The different mysteries were suspenseful and really made you think. My personal favorite was "The Sign of the Four". I love how it gave the background of the incident, and the reasons behind the crime. This book was an overall favorite of mine and is a read-over. "

    " Amazing!!! A must read. It was fantastic. "

    " Currently on The Hound of the Baskervilles. Amazingly written, so easy to see how both Holmes and Watson have become iconic characters in literature. "

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.
