    I've always heard how good theses stories are, but never took the time to read them. The stylistic writing of the time, the density of the story, and the persistence with which they are revealed are better than any crime novel out there. Hats off to Arthur Conan Doyle

    Lots of fun in its old-fashioned way, and not dry or staid, as I thought when I first read these 20 or so years ago. In fact Doyle's writing is more descriptive and insightful, and at times wry, than I ever game him credit for. Maybe you can see the solutions coming -- or maybe that's just my half-remembering from decades ago -- but they're still a lot of fun. It's a good idea to have Wikipedia handy for some references that nobody knows anymore. Enriching!

    Very well written and I enjoyed each chapter as if I was reading the hard copy! This suspenseful novel allowed to me stay interested in every mystery and criminal-mastermind without becoming bored or mundane. Sir Arthur Conan Doyle creates scenes of anticipation for the reader and he does an excellent job of telling a vivid story for every mystery.

    Enjoy the Holmes creation by Doyle for the numerous facets of his personality, singular focus, deductions and assembly of facts to reach his conclusions. A wonderful, almost visual staging of the British culture, character and life at that time.
