a love of short stories led me to this book,
By A Customer
This review is from: The Penguin Complete Sherlock Holmes (Paperback)
Having read many short stories in the Sherlock Holmes series, I stumbled across The Complete Sherlock Holmes. As a woman in my 20s the gentleman seller seemed very astonished that I could show any interest!!! It just goes to show that Sherlock Holmes is a character that interests us all - and this complete series of stories is no exception!! For some it will be a book to be read faithfully from cover to cover as soon as possible, for others a book to be enjoyed as and when. Sherlock Holmes, as we all should know!!, is a grand and infamous detective, with his faithful Watson ever by his side to log and later narrate most adventures (perhaps with a slight exaggeration!). The various stories take us all around London and surroundings with plots to baffle and astound us. Sherlock Holmes is a creation that will appeal to generation after generation, and with stories as gripping as these I am not surprised!!!
