I love Sherlock, and it was great to finally read the collection all the way through. : ) ( )

In the course of two novels and twenty-four stories Sherlock Holmes, faithfully documented by Watson, cements his reputation as the finest detective in the land. It's fitting that Volume I ends with "The Final Problem" in The Memoirs of Sherlock Holmes thematically, but also because with there was such an immense leap forward in style and quality of writing with The Hound of the Baskervilles. With that exception, Doyle will continue to find the most success in publishing individual stories, but in a different publishing atmosphere he would have left the pulps far behind him.

4/7/12 - A Study in Scarlet: 3 Stars

Evil afoot in the promised land of latter-day saints. Mileage may vary.

4/24/12 - The Sign of Four: 2 Stars

Excellent groundwork for the short stories and the Holmes/Watson dynamic, but otherwise dull.

5/5/13 - The Adventures of Sherlock Holmes: 3 Stars

Finally the mysteries readers crave with some of his most famous cases included.

8/17/13 - The Memoirs of Sherlock Holmes: 4 Stars

Patience pays off as Doyle becomes ever more capable as a writer.

The sacred writings. My obsession for the past 6 months. So good. So long, so big. ( )

I think this was the longest book i read in 2013 :)
It had 2 Novels and other stories.
I like the study in scarlet as it was the first novel published of Sherlock Holmes.
The sign of four and short stories with memoirs didn't impress me much. I liked the other adventures :) ( )

First words
In the year 1878 I took my degree of Doctor of Medicine of the University of London, and proceeded to Netley to go through the course prescribed for surgeons in the Army. (A Study in Scarlet)
Quotations
"It's quite exciting," said Sherlock Holmes, with a yawn.
I had neither kith nor kin in England, and was therefore as free as air - or as free as an income of eleven shillings and sixpence a day will permit a man to be.

Sherlock Holmes
The Complete Novels and Stories

Volume I

Since his first appearance in Beeton’s Christmas Annual in 1887, Sir Arthur Conan Doyle’s Sherlock Holmes has been one of the most beloved fictional characters ever created. Now, in two paperback volumes, Bantam presents all fifty-six short stories and four novels featuring Conan Doyle’s classic hero--a truly complete collection of Sherlock Holmes’s adventures in crime!

Volume I includes the early novel A Study in Scarlet, which introduced the eccentric genius of Sherlock Holmes to the world. This baffling murder mystery, with the cryptic word Rache written in blood, first brought Holmes together with Dr. John Watson. Next, The Sign of Four presents Holmes’s famous “seven percent solution” and the strange puzzle of Mary Morstan in the quintessential locked-room mystery.

Also included are Holmes’s feats of extraordinary detection in such famous cases as the chilling “ The Adventure of the Speckled Band,” the baffling riddle of “The Musgrave Ritual,” and the ingeniously plotted “The Five Orange Pips,” tales that bring to life a Victorian England of horse-drawn cabs, fogs, and the famous lodgings at 221B Baker Street, where Sherlock Holmes earned his undisputed reputation as the greatest fictional detective of all time.
