Sherlock Holmes and his right-hand man Dr Watson. Hard to think of a pair of fictional detectives who are better known. Their dramatic and often complex cases with their gripping plots are absorbing reading.
I tend to forget things about Sherlock Holmes if I let too much time pass without re-reading his adventures. I forget that Conan Doyle wrote only four Holmes novels (but, fortunately for Holmes addicts, 56 stories as well). I forget how bizarre are some of the crimes Holmes and Dr Watson investigate, how absorbing and dramatic their investigations are, how compelling the often quirky Holmes' reasoning, skill at disguise, and forensic brilliance are.
And, what should be to the forefront of my recollection - the fact that almost all these attributes of a great detective were invented by Conan Doyle. Later writers of detective fiction have attributed many of Holmes' skills to more recent detectives, but it was Conan Doyle who first imagined them and amalgamated them to create the very first "consultant detective," one whose brilliance still amazes the reader more than a century later.
Great to have the four novels and all 56 stories in one edition, one well formatted for Kindle and enhanced by including the original illustrations. I'll keep it handy to re-read these compelling tales of the greatest of all fictional detectives and his unforgettable partner.
Having just started reading this edition, I'm finding the Baker Street detective stories as intriguing and involving as ever. From what I've seen, this is a well-edited, cleanly presented and error-free edition, which counts for a lot!
With so much here to enjoy, this is an edition I know I will be dipping into again and again over the Christmas period and beyond.
