Classics at a good price

This is the Kindle edition of books I already own. I'm sure Sherlock Holmes doesn't need an introduction. These are the stories we read as kids and continue to reread as adults. Share it with the next generation. They shouldn't be forced to suffer pale imitations when the read deal original is right here.

What can one say about Sherlock Holmes that hasn't been said long ago? Doyle created the quintessential detective, and most other fictional sleuths have been compared to him with Holmes coming out on top. It is a pleasure to reread these classic stories with The Hound of the Baskervilles being a particular favorite. As is often the case with Holmes, he doesn't seem to be close by, but of course he is in disguise, a disguise that Dr. Watson never penetrates. Holmes solves the case, and all the characters are safe and sound at the end. What more can one ask for? Thank you, Dr. Doyle, still doing your job a hundred years after breathing life into Sherlock Holmes.

A nicely bound volume of a great classic

The Sherlock Holmes Adventures have always been a favorite of mine and so when I found a friend who had never read them, I couldn't wait to introduce them to her. She informs me that she loves them as much as I do and that it is a very nicely bound volume. I asked her how she would rate the volume and the writing and she gave each 5 stars.

Sherlock Holmes, the original in a new cover

Although the stories are public domain, I adored this publication of the well-known Sherlock Holmes stories. I recently began watching the BBC series, Sherlock, and instantly was captivated by it. Benedict Cumberbatch and Martin Freeman convincingly and magnificently portrayed Sherlock Holmes and John Watson, respectively, and the writing of the show was equally impressive. Once I had finished season 1, which didn't take long as most Sherlockians know, I turned to the original Sherlock Holmes book series, to bide my time waiting for season 2 to air in America. I downloaded this copy of "The Adventures of Sherlock Holmes" on to my iPad, only because of the cover. The stories are incredible. Captivating and interesting, I could barely put the book down, unfortunately enough for my grades! At the end of the book, I found I had a better appreciation for the work Moffat and Gatiss put into the new series and for Sir Arthur Conan Doyle's original stories.

The Pictures are Awesome!

I already have the same book from a previous purchase, but when I discovered this version had copies of the original artwork that went into the magazines where Sherlock Holmes was serially published, I just had to get it. It was well worth it. A simple "double click" blows up the picture on my screen. It makes me feel like I'm actually part of what the original readers experienced...the only difference is I already know how the stories end. I love the artwork. It brings an additional dimension to the works.

... is my other than it is one of my favorite books of all times

The Adventures of Sherlock Holmes needs no review by my part it is my other than it is one of my favorite books of all times. The Novel/story "The Hound of the Baskervilles" is the reason that I learned to read for enjoyment in the 2nd grade up until the summer of my 2nd to 3rd grade I read only to complete my homework or to make my parents happy but personally took no pleasure in it. It was one of my choices for summer reading and after reading The Hound of the Baskervilles I went on to read the rest of the complete works of Sherlock Holmes in very short order.

I got this as a gift for my sister, a junior in high school. She absolutely adores it! In addition to Sherlock Holmes being a wonderfully written, diverting book, this one looks super pretty. It is beautifully bound. My sister is actually showing it off to her friends as the "best present she has ever gotten!"

Classic and must read for everyone! Sherlock Holmes has grown in popularity recently. With the tv shows and movies. I highly recommend reading the book. I don't like to write too much in book reviews because I feel that in order to adequately write a review, I would have to give away information that would be key to plot. I don't like to be the person to give away spoilers. Therefore my book reviews are always very short and only say a few things in order to tell you, book reviews are much to subjective and I never read a book review before I read a book. I read a book based on what the book is about which I don't read a review to get. If you want more information, buy the book and read it. 🙂

Sherlock Holmes

If you like Sherlock Holmes, here's the whole collection. If you REALLY like Sherlock Holmes, watch some of the very old movies about him and Watson to give the characters a physical appearance.
