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.
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.

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.
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!
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.
