I love this collection of smart mystery stories that Mr. Holmes seems to solve in an instant. Thhinking back, I cannot even think of a favorite because they were all so different and most of the resolutions were pretty shocking. (view spoiler) I love Holmes' amazing skills and quick wit and charm. I cannot wait to read more from him. (view spoiler) ...more

Listening to this one in car...funniest thing though, in the middle of A Study in Scarlet, I was suddenly listening to a tale about a lone surviving pioneer in the American west who I think goes on to become a Mormon, or maybe even to start the Mormon faith....fast-forwarded ahead a few chapters and I was back on Baker Street, where I belonged, but it was trippy! I need to go do some research to find out what it was.....

I really enjoyed about half of these stories. The ones where Sherlock was most involved were the best, but others (The Engineer's Thumb, for instance) where some person just tells Sherlock a curious story were not that great. However, it was really cool to see some if these played out while re-watching the new Sherlock series. I will probably read/listen to the other volumes, but I think I need a little break for now.

Evergreen classic. The typical mysterious and meticulous writing style immediately transports the reader into the observation and deduction mode. Even then, in the end one has no other way but to agree that one has never seen a detective greater or passionate than Sherlock. :)

They're all here and are always worth a read to recalibrate your sleuthing skills. This collection I have both read as text and listened too and both formats are excellent. Each story is well written with fiendish crimes and very logical solutions.

Think this is the first time Holmes meets Irene Adler and she bests him.

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

“Life is infinitely stranger than anything which the mind of man could invent. We would not dare to conceive the things which are really mere commonplaces of existence. If we could fly out of that window hand in hand, hover over this great city, gently remove the roofs, and and peep in at the queer things which are going on, the strange coincidences, the plannings, the cross-purposes, the wonderful chains of events, working through generations, and leading to the most outre results, it would make all fiction with its conventionalities and foreseen conclusions most stale and unprofitable.” 536 likes
