The Adventures Of Sherlock Holmes - Sir Arthur Conan Doyle,
This review is from: The Adventures of Sherlock Holmes (Penguin Classics) (Paperback)
It may seem strange to do so, but i am tempted to compare this book to coming home on a frosty evening to a comfortable chair infront of a roaring log fire.
I was prompted to read this book by a review elsewhere, and i'm seriously glad i took the time to do so. A collection of 12 stories revolving around the iconic Sherlock Holmes and his trusted friend Watson, short and easily digestible in one sitting each.
The stories each have a uniqueness, some are rip roaring shockers, others will keep you guessing right up until the end, all of which though, are written in a style that is all to easy to indulge in time and time again.
Its no wonder this book is still in print well over 100 years after it was first published, as the writing is more appealing and enjoyable than lots of modern equivilents. I urge you to buy this, get hooked and then spend hours telling your friends about Holmes and his wild adventures with society and its grimy underbelly.
