Good book but very lengthy, took me a while to finish
I wish there was something between "read" and "currently-reading". It seems this will be on my "currently-reading" shelf forever; there are so many short stories and at least two full novels. My comments on "The Sign of Four" pretty much still stand with this book; I can only take so much Holmes at a time, and so I wonder if I'll ever finish this book.

I watched the Wishbone episode for "Hound of the Baskervilles". Does that count?
I love Holmes, so I'll always give a collection at least four stars for his writing alone. The commentary here is far superior to the Barnes and Noble complete Holmes, but I would have liked to have seen the complete essays by Christopher Clausen and Doyle himself included here in their entirety rather than as excerpts and slapped with the generic title of "Essay." Not sure why they were excerpted the way they were.
Sherlock Holmes is one of the most famous detectives but unfortunately he is not real. i thought he was real and would always wonder how he made his deductions so accurately and fast.

Arthur Conan Doyle was born the third of ten siblings on 22 May 1859 in Edinburgh, Scotland. His father, Charles Altamont Doyle, was born in England of Irish descent, and his mother, born Mary Foley, was Irish. They were married in 1855.

Although he is now referred to as "Conan Doyle", the origin of this compound surname (if that is how he meant it to be understood) is uncertain. His baptism record
