For Sale: The Adventures of Sherlock Holmes

The Adventures of Sherlock Holmes is a collection of twelve stories written by Arthur Conan Doyle, featuring his famous detective. Venture back in time to Victorian London to join literature's greatest detective team — the brilliant Sherlock Holmes and his devoted assistant, Dr. Watson — as they investigate a dozen of their best-known cases.

Originally published in 1892, this is the first and best collection of stories about the legendary sleuth. It's also the least expensive edition available. Featured tales include several of the author's personal favorites: "A Scandal in Bohemia" — in which a king is blackmailed by a former lover and Holmes matches wits with the only woman to attract his open admiration — plus "The Speckled Band," "The Red-Headed League," and "The Five Orange Pips." Additional mysteries include "The Blue Carbuncle," "The Engineer’s Thumb," "The Beryl Coronet," "The Copper Beeches," and four others.

Holmes and Watson, the birth of serial mysteries

One person found this helpful.
 on March 27, 2015
By JM Harvey Author of Dead on the Vine
The Grandfather of the Detective series. These stories are genre defining and genre defying. If you like mysteries, or the plethora of Sherlock Holmes derived movies and TV series, go back to the source. Doyle writes so plainly and precisely with none of the overly poetic and off-putting language and phrasing of the Victorian era.

Maci and Zoe's Review: One of the Classic Mysteries

The Adventures of Sherlock Holmes by Sir Arthur Conan Doyle is a set of short stories in the larger Sherlock Holmes series (it is the third book in the series). I had watched the TV show and loved it, so I decided to read the books. I enjoyed the books a lot, although I only was able to read 6 of the short stories, they had lots of the same humor as the show and were pretty easy to read. They were about Sherlock Holmes and his friend Doctor John Watson, who helps him solve his cases. Sherlock regards Dr. Watson as one of his closest friends and wants his help whenever possible and Dr. Watson is always happy to help. I enjoyed reading it although it was on the slow side and I found the different writing style interesting to read as well. I would recommend this book to anyone that wants to read a classic, loves a good mystery or who wants more Sherlock Holmes.

The beauty of all Sherlock Holmes stories lie in the fact that the most complicated of mysteries seem to be solved with the greatest of ease by Sherlock Holmes. With Dr. James Watson as his willing sidekick, Holmes always looks to take on the mysteries which capture his fancy, and does so with a certain sense of humour which, I feel, only Arthur Conan Doyle was able to manage. The short-stories are not extremely taxing on the mind in terms of tension, but are gripping enough to keep you reading until it finishes. A very good read.

These are the best Holmes stories written by Doyle

These are the best Holmes stories written by Doyle. These are written before the character became the juggernaut that consumed Doyle's career and made him feel that he couldn't write anything else. He's having fun with the character, creating mysteries for the reader. After this collection, his stories seemed to be driven by Sherlock rather than than the stories themselves. This is a must read for fans and first time readers of the Sherlock Holmes stories alike.

The very best

 on February 13, 2016
By Neil Bryson Cargamento
Sherlock Holmes is incredibly different from other detective novels of the same setting. This shows Holmes's out-of-this-world attention to detail (he can tell where you've been by the dirt on your clothes), and especially the crime solving.

Very Entertaining, but with advanced language.

I was tasked with reading this over Spring Break, and it is very entertaining. However, for a 7th grader with a 1400 max Lexile range, it can be difficult to follow. I recommend it to intelligent people who will understand it just by reading, and i als recommend it to any student in need of a book report: only a little bit of "detective work" is needed. (Pun pun pun)

If you have never read the original Sherlock Holmes, ...

If you have never read the original Sherlock Holmes, I urge you to buy this book. The stories are old ones, as are some of the professions of the characters, but people are people that does not change.
