A hard book to judge. I have never read any Sherlock Holmes before but of course know of him by reputation, etc. This book contains twelve short stories.

I was a bit disappointed that I was underwhelmed by the book. This is certainly unfair to it. At the time it was written it was ground-breaking. Also it's probably partly due to my personal preference for full-length rather than short-stories. But personally I could take it or leave it. That said, it was interesting and Sir Arthur Conan Doyle has a clever knack of observation. Overall I'm glad to have read it, but not jumping to read any more.

Great stories and a real classic.

Conan Doyle's Sherlock Holmes stands the test of time and is still relevant today. I reread this book which I first read over 50 years ago as a teenager. Still liked it immensely. Such wonderful puzzles and mystery at its finest.

HASH(0x9119b6a8) out of 5 stars Classic clever mysteries 29 Oct. 2013
By MamaSylvia - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition
Sherlock Holmes # 3

Happily married and busy with his medical practice, Watson always seems able to drop everything when Holmes wants his help. Contains: A Scandal in Bohemia, The Red-Headed League, A Case of Identity, The Boscombe Valley Mystery, The Five Orange Pips, The Man With the Twisted Lip, The Adventure of the Blue Carbuncle, The Adventure of the Speckled Band, The Adventure of the Engineer's Thumb, The Adventure of the Noble Bachelor, The Adventure of the Beryl Coronet, The Adventure of the Copper Beeches.

eBook downloaded from Gutenberg. Holmes is more sympathetic in this collection than the earlier books but still remote from the concerns of the everyday world, and many of the stories are closer to horror than I like. The stories themselves are extremely clever mysteries and classics in the genre. The Gutenberg file is mostly free of errors.

HASH(0x9119b6fc) out of 5 stars Loved Enough for 5 Stars Had It Not Been For..... 12 May 2013
By Chrystal - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition
The fact that EVERY number and some words were turned into nothing but symbols!!!!! Now I still was able to read and enjoy it, but it perturbed me to not know what the numbers were. Many times it was talking about money. The amount of words this happened on was very minimal and barely noticeable. So don't worry about getting nothing but symbols, words being turned into symbols didn't even happen in every story.

Now, the stories themselves were amazing! I know I'm late to the party, but I've never read Sherlock Holmes. I knew plenty about it, but just never picked up any of the books. Well a blogger I follow linked me to this version, which was FREE! So I thought "What the heck?" and downloaded it. I'm always reading so I can never get my hands on enough books. And being a broke college kid the "free" price tag very much appealed to me. Once I started reading I found I really loved these tales! And I learned a few new words as well (thank you Kindle for having a free dictionary that will tell me any word without having to leave the book). Many of the words added to my vocabulary are very much from the time period and not used much today in conversation. But it never hurts to expand your mind. However, don't worry about the stories being hard to read. The new words weren't many, and the stories flowed on without effort on the readers part. All in all it was wonderful!

HASH(0x9119bb34) out of 5 stars Fun to try to solve 15 Oct. 2014
By Jaclyn - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition
I enjoyed this Sherlock Holmes book better than the first two in the series. This collection of shorter stories was a lot easier for me to read and get into than the full novel-length mysteries. I found it easier to remember the details and try to guess how Holmes would crack the case in these mysteries, and I found them a lot more interesting in these smaller doses.

HASH(0x9119bf00) out of 5 stars Great stories, formatting has a couple of bugs 2 Feb. 2014
By morehumanthanhuman - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition
This is a collection of twelve classic Holmes stories, enjoyable for both established fans and those who are new to Doyle's creation. While the various actors who have brought Holmes to life have been delightful, I find Doyle's Holmes to be eternally enjoyable -- brilliant, condescending, freakishly strong, and intense. There are some minor formatting versions of the type typical to free public domain works -- typically nonsense characters whenever money appears in the text.

HASH(0x9119bfe4) out of 5 stars can't put it down 4 Jan. 2014
By Marian Lockamy - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition
I love this book and am so very sorry that it took me so very long to eventually give it a chance. I got it for FREE when I got my first Kindle in 2010. It has lots and lots of stories, tells that give us clues on how to solve the mystery AND THANK GOD for an online dictionary! So many british words or archaic words that it helps to boost the understanding.

I do not believe House was created on this (as one reviewer claims) as he did not solve crimes, but I will consent to "loosely" based. I have been watching "Sherlock" on the BBC and "Elementary" and I find them very entertaining and even more so now.

As for Formatting issues? pshaw! I think it is because of the shows made popular and even bases on the stories that is presenting a problem. TO CHARGE OR NOT TO CHARGE, that is the question. Sir Arthur Conan Doyle's estate is very picky about his stuff.
