Don't get the Paperback!, 21 Jan 2012
Nothing bad about the book or the stories beacuse I LOVE Sherlock Holmes.
I recieved the paperback version today with a scuff on the cover and it's quite heavy as it is anyway but the pages feel a bit flimsy too, and the spine feels very weak and fragile, like I don't want to pick it up and read it.
But if you're not intending to read it on your daily commute on the train, I highly reccomend getting any "Complete Sherlock Holmes" book in hardback. Just it looks more complete, special and a lot more sturdy.
Hope this helps you make an informed choice.
Shame the Hardback edition of the Penguin Classics version is not available anymore, but mind you, I woudn't have wanted it in the blue cover anyway!
