I love anything that has to do with solving crimes and mysteries. It always kept my mind working. This is really a piece of work awesomely done. Thanks to Sir Arthur for introducing Sherlock and John to us! ( )

Sherlock never once says "Elementary, my dear Watson." ( )

Curious and rather wonderful aspect with Sherlock Holmes' stories is the total lack of artificial suspence - there is no need to frantically flick through the pages in order to get from one action to another, everything is rolled out nice and smoothly...

PS! Should anyone read the adventures for the very first time and has an edition with introduction by Loren Estleman, I strongly recommend to enjoy this part AFTER finishing the book or you miss a lot of insight :) ( )

good! ( )

Sherlock is lost on the plane! The culprits are identified (and harangued) but can our intrepid lost baggage service locate the missing collection!?!?! Watch this space.

A very enjoyable romp through a bygone London. Lots of lovely ideas to plagiarise if I had any inkling (or aspiration) to be a crime writer. Really, Conan Doyle should be included in creative writers' courses.

Epigraph
Dedication
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.
