This review is from: Sherlock Holmes: The Complete Stories (Special Editions) (Paperback)
Sherlock Holmes is such a famous character/story that I had of course already heard so much praise concerning the books that I was expecting nothing short of brilliance. However nothing could prepare me for the sheer genius possessed by Sir Arthur Conan Doyle. The complex cases, the peculiar characters and scenarios, the loveable character of Dr Watson and of course that of the alluring Sherlock Holmes is truly mesmerising. Anyone who shares an interest in crime will adore this book, even those who aren't so interested couldn't possibly resist the impeccable story telling of these impelling tales.
Sherlock Holmes is quite simply one of the greatest characters to have ever been created. I will not share his characteristics here as I wish not to spoil it for anyone, but his intellect and knowledge is truly astounding, and his personality fascinating. He has an aura about him that cannot be described. How Sir Arthur Conan Doyle could possibly create such a person is incomprehensible to me.
This book has been one of the greatest buys of my life, I would recommend it to anyone and everyone.
