I tend to choose novels over short stories, but Conan Doyle manages to pack so much in to these adventures that they hardly seem like short stories at all.
Though written over a century ago they are still easy to read, yet offer a charming insight into days gone by, when letters were posted and received on the same day, everyone wore hats, and transport along the roads was of the equine variety.
I feel like I should be reading these stories whilst toasting crumpets in front of an open fire.
