First of all this is a wonderful story and the second in the Holmes canon. This not a short story but a novel, actually the second novel (total of 4 novels) with the other 50+ stories being short stories. This ideally should be read second, after 

Great mystery and suspense writing.

I'm reading Sherlock Holmes in order. This one, like all the others, is great mystery and suspense writing.

Doyle is a classic

Arthur Conan Doyle is classic for a reason. (How I escaped ever reading any of his writings at my advanced age, I can't say, but I have read him now.)

A Thriller

This is one of the more "thrilling" Sherlock Holmes stories in my opinion. I definitely enjoyed it, and would recommend it for any classic mystery lovers. It won't disappoint you!

This is the first Sherlock Holmes mystery I have ever read and was surprised as to how much I enjoyed it --- and is only 156 pages so I probably read it in four hours – I enjoyed his idiosyncrasies (morphine, cocaine, pipe smoking, violin playing, general impatience) and his companion Watson and how they often disagreed but still got the job done basically because of Holmes but truly an enjoyable read!

Nicely Done

Quite charming cases by son of Arthur Conan Doyle. Published in early 1950s

Precursor of all fictional detectives in print and video

Sir Arthur Conan Doyle is not only the master of the genre, he created it from whole cloth! He has seldom been equaled and never been surpassed in my opinion. We see his stories on the tube almost verbatim today. I must confess my miserly happiness that the work is in the public domain and, hence, readily available to a pensioner on a very limited income. Many nights, I drift off to dreams of Baker Street and the game afoot. Sure, I know Victorian London was a dirty dangerous place packed with undesirables,, hardly the stuff of dreams. That is the beauty of Doyle's work. He paints that place as an adventurous landscape full of intrigue. If I want reality, I can go to Portland and watch the rats eating bagels.

Classic Sherlock Holmes, with an excellent Audible companion

 on November 14, 2013
By Jim Hall
THE SIGN OF THE FOUR, a classic Sherlock Holmes novella, is a good story, well told. As with many works from this time period (1890), it is a trifle long-winded; the denouement in particular was really too long.

Great classic

In the beginning of the book, you get a real look at Sherlock, and at Sir Arthur's writing brilliance. He pulls you right into the character of Sherlock, even if just through the eyes of Watson. You see his need for passion and constant stimulation and how utterly dreary life is to him when he does not have something. I am always amazed at his attention to detail, and the way he goes about solving his investigations. This book introduces you to Mary, and how Watson falls for her. The only reason that I did not give it 5 stars is because I was a little bogged down by the details of the Indian Rebellion of 1857. Having a quick lesson on the rebellion details may have helped a little.
