5.0 out of 5 stars Great collection...even got the Dancing Men! 2 Aug 2011
By FictionFan TOP 100 REVIEWER VINE VOICE
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
Having been a devoted fan of the incomparable Holmes for more years than I care to mention, and having fond memories of the Challenger novels and some of the historical novels from my early years, this collection was a must.

As well as all of the well-known stuff, there are some added gems in this volume - for instance, there are a couple of very short little Holmes stories that Conan Doyle wrote for charity fund-raisers - these humorous little tales are written like affectionate pastiches of his own style. Have you ever fancied writing your own Holmes story? Well, now's your chance - The Adventure of the Tall Men is Conan Doyle's outline of a story he never finished. I spent a happy half-hour imagining how he would have filled out these bare bones into a full-fledged tale.

Then, we have the Challenger stories. While they fell away towards the end, the first couple are classics of early science fiction and written with Conan Doyle's trademark humour and excitement. I haven't got round to re-reading the historical novels yet, nor any of the other fiction and non-fiction included in this collection - it's such fun to know there's still so much to discover.

So why only 4 stars? (Now 5 stars - see edit below.) One reason, but for Holmes fanatics, an important one. Each time there should be a diagram or a plan, instead we just get the word `GRAPHIC'. So there's no map in The Priory School, no plan in The Golden Pince-Nez, and, worst of all, there are no Dancing Men! We all like to try to work out the cipher ourselves, don't we, (or is that just me?) so this seems like a terrible omission, spoiling one of the greatest of all the stories.

5.0 out of 5 stars Excellent value 30 Aug 2011
By DLJ
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
I'm a recent owner of a Kindle, and among my first purchases was the Delphi Classics Conan Doyle collection. So far I've only read through the first four Sherlock Holmes books and dipped in and out of some of the later stories. I'm very impressed by the amount of material within the collection. I know that these are Public Domain and would be available for free - but in my opinion it is definitely worth the couple of pounds for someone else to do the leg work for me.

A couple of minor niggles - while the first three Holmes books seem remarkably free from errors there are far more typos in the Memoirs of Sherlock Holmes. It is a shame that there's no easy way of noting these because Delphi seem very amenable to updating collections in response to customer's comments. My second minor niggle is that the stories seem to use American spelling, rather than the English spelling that the books would originally have used.

However, all in all, I'm extremely happy with the collection and have since purchased further Delphi collections.

EDIT: I still recommend these Delphi collections, but don't buy on the expectation that updates will be occurring or universally available in future. Delphi are no longer promising that updates will be continued or that purchasers will be able to access these in the future. An email received from Delphi last week read "The update service is a free service we offer customers, which is very time consuming process for us, but we like to offer the customers the opportunity of free updates. We cannot guarantee this service forever - it is a benefit of purchasing from us that we like to offer. The actual eBook that customers download is what customers have purchased, not the update service."

5.0 out of 5 stars Best Doyle collection 5 Nov 2011
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
I had previously bought another Doyle ebook collection from a different publisher which was less complete than this one, then added some other Doyle ebooks from other sources (bought or from Project Gutenberg). I thought I was happy with that, but this collection from Delphi Classics certainly improves on the previous one, so it has been well worthwhile for me to pay for some stuff twice! The cost of this is very modest for what you get. It's a pretty comprehensive collection, though not absolutely complete (see below). Strongly recommended.

Some minor niggles: (NB: SEE NOTE BELOW)

(1) It would be nice to have a full indexed list of short stories, which is a feature of other Delphi collections but is not included in this one. The "Other Fiction" section in the Contents is a mix of short story collections and some full length novels, so it's a bit tricky to locate specific stories.

(2) I can't find Doyle's autobiographical "Memories and Adventures" in this collection. This is much more interesting than those embarassing books about fairies, spiritualism, etc. I think there are also a couple of dramatised versions of Sherlock Holmes stories by Doyle himself that are not included here, but these are less significant.

(3) For some bizarre reason my Kindle contents page indexes this collection under B for Barrie rather than D for Doyle.

NOTE ADDED: Delphi Classics have notified me that they have sorted out the niggles mentioned above, which is great service, though I haven't yet figured out how to get the updated version via Amazon.

Everything he wrote, including some things I didn't realise he wrote. His short stories are superb, and I was particularly fascinated by his views on the afterlife.
