5.0 out of 5 stars Sherlock Holmes, Detective Extraordinaire, 18 Jun. 2012
I have had several different editions of the Complete Sherlock Holmes tales, but this is the first large format version I have seen. It reproduces the original 'Strand' illustrations in a suitably large scale. The paper is fine, and the text a little larger than normal, making the edition extremely readable. This edition is definitely one for reading at home; buy a standard size book or the Kindle edition for reading on the move, but settle down in a favourite armchair with this version. The stories are, of course, beyond criticism; they have held their own in detective fiction for around one hundred years and Sherlock Holmes is one of the most filmed characters in movie and TV history. Conan Doyle's descriptive powers put the reader into the very scene. At the same time his style takes us back to the turn of the century.
It doesn't really matter what edition you read, but the Sherlock Holmes stories are an absolute must for any student of the English language.
