Sherlock HolmesI loved this book so much that I couldn’t stop reading the sample!.Score: 5/5

Sherlock holmesBest book ever!!!!!.Score: 5/5

Wonderful!This collection was a wonderful read, Sherlock Holmes' use of the science of deduction was intriguing. I love this collection! Though I do wish A Study in Scarlet was included. Anyhow Sir Arthur Conan Doyle is a brilliant author and will be revered for years to come..Score: 5/5

It's Sherlock Holmes!I mean, who doesn't love Sherlock? I read this book very quickly, as it held my interest intently. I absolutely loved it, and I'm now looking for another one!.Score: 5/5

A fine piece of work by Sir Conan DoyleArthur has finally outdone himself. I am a 7 year old boy and having read all the Sherlock stories thrice, I have come to respect his tale more, and more. I love the doctors narration so much. Does anybody nkow when the next one comes out?.Score: 5/5

Awesome!!!I love these Sherlock Holmes stories.The are So exciting,the way he deducts things is cool.I especially like the ones THE SPECKLED BAND,and THE BERYL CORONET.It is like you don't want to put it down once you have started reading it.They are amazing,these stories..Score: 5/5

ClassicStephen King wrote in On Writing: the art of writing requires just enough detail for the reader to absorb the author's point, and no more. Doyle might be one of the best examples of that art..Score: 5/5

InterestingI had never read this book before. But it’s interesting..Score: 5/5

Good ole SherlockI've always heard how good theses stories are, but never took the time to read them. The stylistic writing of the time, the density of the story, and the persistence with which they are revealed are better than any crime novel out there. Hats off to Arthur Conan Doyle.Score: 5/5

It’s Sherlock.There are few phrases that I think could have been better written as having been said by Holmes, but other than that, Sir Doyle has done an outstanding job at putting down detail and fact, as factual as can be, to keep an audience’s attention. I’ve always loved Sherlock Holmes stories and mysteries..Score: 5/5

The Adventures of Sherlock HolmesI had a hard time staying interested..Score: 3/5

Good times, 19th-century styleLots of fun in its old-fashioned way, and not dry or staid, as I thought when I first read these 20 or so years ago. In fact Doyle's writing is more descriptive and insightful, and at times wry, than I ever game him credit for. Maybe you can see the solutions coming -- or maybe that's just my half-remembering from decades ago -- but they're still a lot of fun. It's a good idea to have Wikipedia handy for some references that nobody knows anymore. Enriching!.Score: 4/5

Best Sherlock Mysteries!!Very well written and I enjoyed each chapter as if I was reading the hard copy!

Loved the short storiesThis was a great book, I was immediately interested. There are some chapters that are a bit slower, and even though I read them, they weren’t as interesting as the others. The great thing about this collection is that if you don’t like a story, move on to the next one. I would recommend The Speckled Band as the best on in there..Score: 5/5

As enjoyable as the TV SeriesIt is difficult to not see Cumberbatch and Freeman on every page. Doyle's straightforward and unembellished prose, so unlike that of his contemporaries, makes for easy but enjoyable reading. He leaves the fancy talk to the characters and keeps the scene description honest, without the obfuscation, interminable run-on sentences and vague literary references that plague the alleged masters of his profession. This was a welcome antidote to my recent completion of works by Dickens and Hugo..Score: 5/5

FanEnjoy the Holmes creation by Doyle for the numerous facets of his personality, singular focus, deductions and assembly of facts to reach his conclusions. A wonderful, almost visual staging of the British culture, character and life at that time..Score: 4/5

The adventures of Sherlock HolmesBear in mind I have just started reading books again. But it was a little hard to get into reading this I guess because of the age of the book.

The Adventures of Sherlock HolmesHaving been a fan of the movies, I was interested in reading this book. The writing was a challenge to sometimes comprehend, due to English ways of description in the 1870’s - 1890’s. However, character development was by far excellent, along with storyline. Highly recommended reading puts you in England alongside Dr. Watson and Sherlock Holmes, for many cases to solve!.Score: 5/5
