I enjoyed this short collection of stories about Sherlock Holmes, although compared to some of his other adventures, this one didn't grip me as much as I'd have liked.

I think one or two of the mysteries have appeared in other anthology collections about Mr. Holmes, as some did seem familiar to me, which might have added to me feeling a little disconnected from this collection. Normally, I love reading stories about the detective as I find Sherlock Holmes a very interesting and fun character to read about. In this collection I didn't get that same feeling. I do find how Sherlock solves the mysteries and his quarks amusing, he's usually a fun and eccentric character to read about, but this collection just didn't show them as much as others have.

The stories were good, some more interesting than others and I did enjoy the collection, just not as much as I thought I would. In the end, a good collection, but not the best example of what Sherlock is capable of.
