WAT-SON! . . . This place is a mess. 28 Mar. 2000
By Steffan Piper - Published on
Format: Paperback
Of the two volumes, this happens to be my favourite. Matter of fact, this is my favourite piece of fiction to date. There's some great stories in this volume, particularly, The Adventure of the Devil's Foot. The Bruce Partington Plans, Shoscombe Old Place etc.

The Case Book Stories found in this volume, the last twelve are probably the most romantic (not to be confused with romance, although there is some of that), on the part of Holmes' biographer Dr. John Watson (Doyle) and not as deeply scientific as some of the earlier works found in the first volume, like the Five Orange Pips.

The beauty of this volume though, works upon your imagination using your fascination with Holmes's outlandishness and quirky behavior and Watson's down-home bed-side manner.

A classic volume, indeed.

great compilation 14 July 2013

Sherlock Holmes is a great read, and there's no disputing it. I own both volumes of complete novels and stories and I have enjoyed them a lot. This publication allows for continuous reading of the sherlock holmes series.

However, with the abundance of sherlock holmes publications, I believe this publication of Complete Novels and Stories to be the best because it shows all the stories in chronological order. Even though within the stories, chronology isn't that important, I have heard many complaints by my friends that they had wished they could've read them in order, to experience them the way the average reader during Doyle's time could've read them.

For this publication, the text is rather small, so be cautious if you cannot feel uncomfortable reading small text. Personally, I enjoy the small text.

Sherlock Holmes Vol. 1 24 July 2002
By A Customer - Published on
Format: Paperback
If you're only going to buy one of the volumes of the Complete Sherlock Holmes, then this is the one I would recommend. The later stories are very good, too, but the ones in this one are better.

Why didn't I read this when I was younger? 13 Feb. 2011

I don't know how I missed the Sherlock Holmes books when I was growing up, but I'm so glad to find them now. This is the kind of book that should be required reading in high school, because it will light the fires of those who don't particularly love to read. Those who do love to read, young people and adults alike, will simply love these stories. Intelligent, full of twists and quirks, and just plain fun!
