    1. A few of the things I learned Once you have eliminated the impossible, whatever remains, however improbable, must be the truthNever theorize before you have all the evidence It biases the judgment.Also, I now sometimes try to analyze people based on their shoes and pants when sitting on the subway I have yet to ask anyone if I was accurate about my predictions.

    4. I have no idea how I let myself get so long in the tooth before finally settling down and reading this collection Suffice to say I am glad I finally came to my senses.It is all here, every Sherlock Holmes story ever penned by Arthur Conan Doyle There are four complete novels and five books of case studies Relax I am not going to even attempt to review every one of these That would be tedious for me as well as you.There is no doubt that my hands down favourite of the entire collection was The Hou [...]

    6. Caro Arthur Conan Doyle, So il che rapporto con la tua pi famosa creatura non sempre stato idilliaco So che sei arrivato perfino a commettere un omicidio pur di sbarazzarti della tua onnipresente e impertinente creatura Ma sono contenta che ti sia ricreduto e che Sherlock Holmes, alla fine, sia sopravvissuto anche al suo peggior nemico il suo stesso creatore.Ora, ci sono mille altre cose che vorrei aggiungere Ad esempio, potrei dire di come abbia cominciato con Uno studio in rosso che avevo anco [...]

    7. For the Celebrity Death Match Review Tournament, Le Petit Prince 14 versus The Complete Sherlock Holmes 19 It was some time during the summer of 19__ that I received an urgent telegram from Holmes Arriving at 221B, Baker Street, I was struck by how little he had changed He was older, to be sure but his eye was as keen as ever, and his enthusiasm not one whit abated by the passage of the years I trust you have brought your passport, Watson he said, in lieu of greeting We depart for Algeria this e [...]

    11. My impression of what a Sherlock Holmes story is actually like.I came down to breakfast one morning to find my dear friend, Sherlock Holmes disembowelling a gerbil with a teaspoon My dear Holmes, said I, is that really necessary Barely glancing up from his gruesome task, he told me that it was You see, Watson, he continued, there is matter that I believe may soon become illuminated not only to you but the whole of London society Good God, Holmes I cried Whatever is this Have patience, Watson, re [...]

    12. I don t know if anyone else does this, but in times of stress or when I have exceptional trouble falling asleep, I find myself re reading a favorite book One of these used to be my complete Hitchhiker s Guide to the Galaxy series but alas, it is in fact possible to read those books too many times Lately this book has been the Complete Sherlock Holmes.What amazes me the most about these stories is that, despite having read through the entire collection a number of times, I seem to find something [...]

    13. Phew I finished this whole thing in twelve days except for The Hound of the Baskervilles which I had read before I was in a very restless mood while reading and couldn t stop The focus, precision and energy of the stories kept me alert throughout and I never tired As soon as I finished a story I was immediately hungry for I think the stories actually gained something by being consumed in succession in a short time It made me aware of the structure of the stories, about similarities and patterns [...]

Jan 15, 2013 I received this as a gift when I was 20 years old I had already read it but I must have read again, because the cover wore off I tucked the front and back piece of the cover in the back of the book, and that s how I know it was this edition I loved Sherlock Holmes I own a Sherlock Holmes sweatshirt at this very time.I also liked Arthur George by Julian Barnes, which was about Sir Arthur Conan Doyle.Added after I saw one of my friends was going to read Sherlock Holmes.I see is showin [...]

    15. What first got me hooked on reading That sounds corny, like Hooked on Phonics or something Either way, I found a seriously abridged and illustrated version of a few stories when I was in 3rd grade And I ve never looked back Hands down my favorite reads ever.

    16. As it turns out, I don t like Sherlock Holmes very much The idea Some of the writing The kernel of the character and Watson and 221B and Mrs Hudson and so on Absolutely Holmes himself and his mysteries Oh, God I m sure it was in some small part down to the fact that I listened to the entire blessed Holmes canon in an Audible Complete edition I was happy about it, because it was narrated by Simon Vance, who has done such a magnificent job voicing Holmes in sequels by other authors And I can in no [...]

A Scandal in Bohemia Chapter I.A dialogue I liked.A scene at 221 B, Baker Street, LondonSherlock is sitting in his armchair in his usual manner, his eyes closed In front of him is Count Von Kramm, a Bohemian nobleman, wearing a mask Who he was kidding He was in front of the great SH And so in front of him actually is Wilhelm Gottsreich Sigismond von Ormstein, Grand Duke of Cassel Felstein, and hereditary King of Bohemia this time SH has opened his eyes and had an impatient look at his client.The [...]

    20. My first review Well then Let s get to it There are many things about Sherlock Holmes stories that I find to be brilliant but I will discuss only three in this review so as not to make it too long.The first is that Holmes is actually as brilliant as his reputation would have everyone believe Something that I find extremely annoying in fiction is when a character has a reputation for being a fantastic investigator or for being great at something else but they never do anything to prove themselves [...]

    21. I ve decided that this mammoth collection of stories will be a work in progress project for me It ll probably take me a lifetime between reading other books, but the target is set Why am I doing this Well, a you can have too much of a good thing and b I don t want to run the risk of the stories all rolling into one, becoming samey and then boredom setting in and the book landing on my given up shelf I m quite sure that these stories were never published all in one go and in one volume So it does [...]

    22. 58 hours of narration by the wonderful Simon Vance which I doubt will ever be improved upon Truly remarkable stories I often struggle to determine how many stars to give many books, especially modern ones which often come highly touted But there is no struggle here These stories are superior to any modern stories I have read this year For those who may not know this Doyle was a wonderful author of other books equal to his Sherlock Holmes books For family reading do not miss The White Company For [...]

In which we learn that Sherlock Holmes turns to a seven percent solution of cocaine for mental stimulation in the absence of a case on which to work, much to the chagrin of Dr Watson Arthur Conan Doyle weaves a story around the Sepoy Mutiny and a lost Indian treasure,in a plot reminiscent of Wilkie Collins The Moonstone Sherlock Holmes reveals that he is a master of disguise and we learn of the workings of the Baker Street Irregulars This second appearance of Holmes and Watson is action driven [...]

    25. These novels and short stories are a blast to read when you want to get a taste of the original crime thriller stuff It s cool to know that Doyle kind of started the detective crime mystery genre If that doesn t make it cool enough, Sherlock Holmes makes for a very interesting character to follow, which makes sense since the character of Gregory House on the medical show HOUSE was based on Sherlock Holmes This isn t necessarily because they both solve mysteries, but they both seem to have that i [...]

    26. There are Holmes stories that I ve likely read or heard a dozen times my husband and I read the collected Sherlock Holmes stories aloud to each other when we were first married others I had never encountered before Or certainly don t remember At almost 63 hours, this is a long slog, and if I appreciated Holmes , I would have rated it higher Certainly, it s a must for Sherlockians and Fry is the consummate performer and a great reader.

    27. This book is nothing short of brilliant.Arthur Conan Doyle is a master writer there never was a dull moment in every story, and there are only a handful of characters that I would love as dearly as I love Sherlock and Watson.

    28. I LOVE Sherlock Holmes Conan Doyle s stories are so easy to dip in and out of yet stay with you for a long time His writing is superb and I love that while reading any one story I will be scared nervous curious baffled etc What I particularly loved was that 80% of the time if not i did not know who the culprit was I love not knowing the ending of stories and sadly a lot of modern day crime books can be a bit predictable towards the end Cannot recommend Sherlock Holmes high enough Even if you do [...]

    29. I ll be honest, after a while I was just building up to Hound of the Baskervilles just to see what it s like And to be honest, Hound of the Baskervilles is easily the best story in this collection Everything is so British horror and I love it, and aside from the short story The Final Problem and a few others most of these stories are utterly forgettable It was interesting to see how Holmes differed from the cultural image we have of him He s basically a bohemian, and in another universe he d be [...]

    30. I think this book is awesome because of how many rhetorical devices it uses and how Arthur Conan Doyle adds his own puzzles and gave the reader chances to solve it as the stories progressed However, I think its hard for me to give this book a 4 or 5 star because I never really liked crime stories like Sherlock Holmes And even though this book is amazing, I don t think it has impacted me to the point to make me like this genera .
