A great classic. ( )

I haven't read these since I was a teen.

Some of the stories still hold up very well. ( )

"The Yellow Face"
Thus far, this is my favorite of the Sherlock Holmes short stories. It's wonderful to see Sherlock be wrong, for a change. It humanizes him. Yet, even being wrong, he delighted in the resolution in the case, rather than being resentful - a sign of humility. The ending was wonderful. I truly enjoyed it.

"The Stockbroker's Clerk"
Meh. It just feels like a re-imaging of the Red-Headed League, to me.

"The Gloria Scott"
Not as captivating as some of his other stories, but it was still an interesting peak into the mind of Sherlock Holmes.

"The Musgrave Ritual"
Yay! I love it when I can solve the puzzle before the final reveal. At the same time, given how horrible I am at puzzles and mysteries, it makes me feel that this must have been lazily written if I could figure it out so readily.

"The Final Solution"
Ummm...What the hell is this crap? There's no real build of story, no interesting events, and then it just ends. It's far too obviously how Doyle felt about Sherlock by this story. ( )

This took me a LONG time to get through, because I picked up this book pretty infrequently to squeeze in a story between other books, but I am SO GLAD that I have finally read all of these. My first exposure to Sherlock Holmes came in my eighth grade classroom when we were assigned "The Hound of the Baskervilles." Eighth-grader me no likey, but all growned-up me really enjoyed these stories. I should have taken some reading notes on the individual stories, because there are so many and I read them over such a stretch of time that they are all a bit of a jumble. But, in short, I loved these stories and they were so much more enjoyable than my twelve-year-old self would have anticipated. ( )
