5.0 out of 5 stars A pleasure from cover to cover!
I had never read any of the many Holmes mysteries before and picking up this (large print) version was the best thing I ever did as it was also my first ever large print book!

The pleasure in (at last) being able to read comfortably was undeniable and the equal pleasure I got out of the short stories was huge. I loved the stories, admired the style and now...

This review is from: Eight Great Sherlock Holmes Stories (Dover Large Print Classics) (Paperback)
I had never read any of the many Holmes mysteries before and picking up this (large print) version was the best thing I ever did as it was also my first ever large print book!

The pleasure in (at last) being able to read comfortably was undeniable and the equal pleasure I got out of the short stories was huge. I loved the stories, admired the style and now intend to read a lot more of Conan-Doyle's works - probably moving onto the novels next.

I don't know why C-D is not on the GCSE reading list because it should be. As a piece of social history the works are splendid and also as little literary masterpieces I found each story to be tremendously well-done. Yes, some stories may be a little bit contrived, but there is plenty of room for literary license.

Finally, if they exist, I'd love to read more of these in large print.

Bought for my mother who is now in a residential home. Excellent value for money (it simply had someone's name written on the blank page) and in perfect condition. Arrived well on time!

I bought it for my 98 year old father who is managing to read it and finding it's light enough to hold. A success!
