Good times, 19th-century style. Lots 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!

As enjoyable as the TV Series. It 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.

New to Sherlock Holmes. Can’t believe I never read this. Loved it.

Trash. It was absolutely garbage

A True Classic!. Excellent classic read! I never get tired of the great adventures of Holmes and Watson!

The adventures of Sherlock Homles. I loved this book I was sad to get to the last page. The stories were thought provoking and even with the old English ,was easy to read. Recommend reading, enjoy.

Best Sherlock Mysteries!!. Very well written and I enjoyed each chapter as if I was reading the hard copy! This suspenseful novel allowed to me stay interested in every mystery and criminal-mastermind without becoming bored or mundane. Sir Arthur Conan Doyle creates scenes of anticipation for the reader and he does an excellent job of telling a vivid story for every mystery.

Timeless and intriguing adventures of two friends on Baker Street. A thoroughly timeless tale of mystery, humor, loyalty, suspense, and honor. I could barely lay it down and hardly wait for the next adventure!

adventures of sherlock holmes. classic!

Good book. Good book

Loved the short stories. This 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.

Bored. Bored bored bored

Volume !?. What, volume is this !?

Classic. Stephen 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.

I hate it. To me it was really boring and I always reAd ahead in 12 grade history

The Sherlock Holmes Lover 2015. Hi, I am Bradley Normandin and this is DA BOMB. I highly recommend this book... MustRead

Pretty Good Book. It kinda dragged in some places, but most of the stories were very intriguing and well written.

VERY GOOD!!!!!!!!. I really like all the mystery’s and it is really fun to try to solve the mystery before Sherlock Holmes finds out.

Loved it!. I’m usually a slow reader, but I finished this book only in a few days, while for others it would take weeks. The interesting, splendidly woven tales of mystery really snatched all my attention, and I haven’t read any of the longer tales written by Doyle yet, but I definitely will! Really recommend it!

Good. Good

Love. It was great I love how it is dated back to a very long time ago

Sherlock Holmes. I loved this book so much that I couldn’t stop reading the sample!

Exciting. I just don’t know how Sherlock does it Overall great read and highly recommended, see if you can solve the cases first 🙂

The Adventures of Sherlock Holmes. I had a hard time staying interested.

Love this !. I love Sherlock Holmes so much! I read them as a kid and I have loved reading now as an adult !

Sherlock Holmes. I thought the stories/cases were average at best. I was overall, disappointed.

Good ole Sherlock. I'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

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!

Read this right now. This book is awesome...jk... this book is friggin boring. It’s un-entertaining. I wish I could un-read this udder piece of garbage! I wanna cry it’s so bad.

A fine piece of work by Sir Conan Doyle. Arthur 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?

🧐 Watson & Sherlock 🥸. Once in Live. Kinda umbrella but I don’t think I can make that big of them too much.

Yum. It was a good book it also tasted good

Sherlock, always a good read!. 👍🏽

The Adventures of Sherlock Holmes. Having 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!

Hot. Sexy 😜😜😜😜😜😜😜😜

Brilliant adventures. Enjoyed all the mysteries that I read. If your a fan of the movies, you'll be a fan of the short stories

Mooooooooo hahahahahahHahahahahahahahahahHH. You fools hahahahaha

Good book.. Some of the adventures were hard to get into but over all it was a good book. I am reading the classics and I considered this one of them. Enjoy!!

Fan. Enjoy 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.

Tjruhfh. Djrbdxkrmdmbnrdnf

Great Read. I loved every one of these stories, this book helped me through many sleepless nights.

Loving it. best adventures no matter how many times you read them.

Immaculate. Riveting

A rather exquisite review. This book has allowed me to think over and above in Fortnite. I now understand how to drink the chug jug IN SEASON TWO and in 10 seconds. I am now a master gamer

Interesting. I had never read this book before. But it’s interesting.

Brilliant!. I love Sherlock Holmes and was ecstatic to find I could download my favourite Sherlock stories for free! Love it!

The Adventures of Sherlock Holmes. A wonderful classic, each chapter is a different case with just enough detail to keep you intrigued without getting lost in trivialities. A fine read.

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.

Great reading.. Short stories that hold my interest. Loved it.

Thanks. A wonderful set of stories. Thanks !

The Adventures of Sherlock Holmes. Brilliant.

This book is awesome. The book is good a watched the film and the book is rubbisher then the film

Fascinating. Ingenious and extraordinary

Yawn. :(

Excellent Even Today. Timeless mysteries that will keep you interested until the final story.

Perfect Read. The characters and stories are captivating and insightful, the imagery and detail make the puzzles and crimes that much more interesting and riddling. Would definitely read it again and again.

Amazing. Great book. Only detective worth bothering with all the others are boring compaired to sherlock

Sherlock Holmes. Fantastic

An absolute marvel. An absolute marvel of English literature now this is the kind of books I want to see the generation of today reading and most of all actually enjoying these books Arthur Conan Doyle has produced a magnificent book of unique intelligence and this should be shown to adolescent children everywhere.

Great read. Didn’t think I would like this but I was very impressed. Very entertaining and enjoyable. Each short story kept me guessing.

The Adventures of Sherlock Holmes. Omfg the moment I picked this book up I knew it was going to be good. Could have added all the other stories as well though.

Wonderful stories!. I like the stories. Although the plots are not wholly dissimilar, each story offers a unique reading.

absolute TRASH. It’s just confusing at the start not even going to bother imma just delete it for my iPad storage if you read this don’t get it

Grand!!! As a Sherlock should be. Conan Doyle is a master as proven and the format is great

Charming & brilliantly distracting. I have not indulged in any of the old classic before and took it upon myself to have a change of scene for my imagination. I am a mother of two young boys and have recently found it hard to enjoy a previously much enjoyed hobby such as reading; however these little episodes were perfect and bought much excitement to my nighttime shenanigans with two small people. A great read following the fantastic 'Lost World' and I can not wait to discover more of Sir ACD's writings.

Great bedtime reading. Brilliant short stories, gripping at times, not bad from the pen of the original Portsmouth Football Club goalkeeper!

Absolutely incredible.. These stories are just phenomenal in every way possible. Great mystery and adventure. I enjoyed reading them a lot and I’m just some dumb kid.

Great,Amazing can't think of better words. A really, really good book, full of adventure.

I’m telling you this is an amazing book 💁🏻‍♀️💁🏻‍♀️. Ok so I can go ahead and tell you that this is a very good book 💁🏻‍♀️💁🏻‍♀️

Sherlock Holmes. Wow that was amazing if I could say 1 thing about this book it would be read this book it is amazing it is one of my favorite books ever oh my gosh

Excellent & fantastic read - the best!!. V. Well written series of short stories. Addictive reading and difficult to put down. Fantastic detective methods for the time of writing, this must be where CSI and forensics began.

Love these stories.. Made my journey to and from work thoroughly enjoyable

Plenty to keep you occupied. I really enjoyed these stories, so many , some of them I’ve never heard of .... lol really spell binding, really good reading.

An amazing read. A true page Turner.

FANTASTIC. Wasn't what I was expecting, but really enjoyed reading the stories written from Dr Watsons' point of view! Very good read.

The return of Sherlock holmes. A collection of short stories which demonstrate the detection skills of Sherlock Holmes. The style and content will probably already be familiar to most readers. Set in Victorian Britain they are therefore dated but nevertheless make for an amusing read.

Hello. Zxsbhdbhabxhshx

Really worth the read. Having known Holmes for many years its great to learn where he came from.

Wisoko. Brilliant series of short mysteries.

Supercalafrajalisticexpealadocious. Just superb. Best book you'll ever read!

Lives up to the series. This is a great book. It is helped by the amazing third series of Sherlock, but the book it's self is something completely different. Amazing works from an amazing author

Good introduction to Sherlock Holmes. Short crimes to solve. Some are a bit obvious but all the stories are entertaining

Fantastic. An absolutely amazing set of novels which kept me on edge throughout.

Fantastic. If you have eyes and can read I implore you to do so with this wonderful collection.

Fantastic. Keeps you entertained, great stories, a classic!

Excellent. A good collection of short stories featuring the ultimate detective, well worth a download.

Not all books. The contents of this book is brilliant but there aren't all the books they haven't got the final problem!!!

Chars book. Me mum dad Kyle Jessie shadow all go boooooom smash clack and love each charger at the same time in all one day ore maybe more days now I am worchin with Sony with a chance so please shark up every day

No. I don’t think this is a lovely history

Awesome. This is a sick set of stories nuf said !

Sherloks first outing. I was pleasently surprised by this book. After seeing films i took it upon myself to read the original and it is excellent.

Excellent. Great to revisit these classic stories

Sherlock Holmes. Good book I really liked the book

⬆⬆⬇⬇⬅➡⬅➡🅱🅰. Truly intriguing, enthralling stories. I do love them so.

A great read. Fantastic book well written and very entertaining. I can see why this book is still read now a real classic.

The Adventures of Sherlock Holmes. Loved it! The chapters are small enough to read one a night which is perfect as a light read before bed. You won't be disappointed!

Amazing. Amazing book with lots of adventures all for the great sum of $0.00

Fantastic, Imaginative & Entertaining. The book doesn't disappoint, while I've been reading this book of short stories the voices I hear in the conversations are of Basil Rathbone & Nigel Bruce, which in my humble opinion are the definitive movie pairing for Messrs Holmes & Watson

Sherlock. Brilliant. Absolutely fantastic

Not good. This book was rubbish totally did not scroll through the book if you get me £16 I will rate this book the best

A Great Classic. It's always rewarding to read the book even if there are Hollywood films based on them. To think, this story was written more than 100 years ago!

Amazballs. Best murder mistery book I've ever read

Jofnpivrn. This book is great at!

Great book. My 1st e-book and it was free. Great read without the bulk of a thick book. Interesting stories so it deserves all stars.

I LOVE IT!!. Sherlock Holmes, an extremely classic novel filled with brain challenging puzzles for the reader as well!! I always try to guess the case beforehand!!

Good. Good book

Classic short stories. 20 years ago it was suggested to me that I should read this book. I should have listened sooner as it was simply a delight to read and I am so happy that I found the time to complete this book. Take my advice and read it, you won't be disappointed.

Sherlock holmes. Sherlock Holmes is a highly fascinating book with more adventure for Sherlock and Watson. P.S lot of death

Outstanding. The greatest detective if all time

Sherlock. Excellent, good read!

Classic!. An old classic which stirs the mind's imagination. Easy to read in short episodes. Looking forward to the others in the collection.

Sherlock Holmes. A good read!

Books. This is one of the best books that I have read so far

The adventures. Of Sherlock Holmes. An enjoyable read. Light hearted but full of intrigue and unusual events. Great to read a complete story in one sitting.

Witty. It is a great read Arthur Conan Doyle lights up dim lights and makes Holmes seem witty but cocky also.

Sherlock Holmes. The best free book. As a copypasta once said “[The graphics are bad.] How is this game for Sail in 202??”

An arousing story. This book is phenomenal,it is so arousing . Honestly this has kindled a passion of reading in me .What is astonishing is that the book is entirely free, no costs associated. The tension is almost tangible . Well done.

The adventures of Sherlock Holmes. The stories in this book were an enjoyable read.

Fantastic. As a free book this is just fantastic. If you have never read Sherlock Holmes you NEED to! It is a great story that anyone can enjoy.

Review. The book was ok but it was a little boring .😴

The Adventures of Sherlock Holmes. Never gets stale. Such a cool brain. Love the deductions.

Best Books Ever!!!. Sherlock Holmes really is one of the greatest fictional characters of all time! :D I never get tired of reading and rereading the books.

Rupert. This has everything a great book must have!

Awesome. Still a great read, even after 130 years!

Mystery at its purest. The episodic nature of the book made it a little jarring for extended reading sessions; but a joy for a quick chapter here and there. It’s easy to see why Sherlock Holmes as a character has transcend eras and is still relevant to this day. Being a flawed, pompous narcissist made him a perfect contrast to the reader (Watson) and created a great dynamic where you both admire and resent him throughout their adventures.

Very good book. I liked it

Sherlock Holmes. Pleasantly entertaining! Enjoyed all of the stories and am now going to indulge in The Return of Sherlock Holmes. Very good!

The Adventures of Sherlock Holmes. A light enjoyable read, consistent to the style of other Sherlock Holmes adventures

Best. Ive seen both the motives and the tv show but this is way better

Sherlock Holmes. I am still reading this book, I kind of don't like it. I am still on the first chapter. I only have one book so far.

Excellent. Well-written, intelligent stories, and a nicely presented free version from the publisher.

Amazing Book!. It's a great book that everyone should have read at least once!

Classic!. Here are 12 delightful tales of Holmes and Watson, all the better for NOT being among those best-known tales we've. All read, seen in film, etc. there may seem an occasional variance in the qu,laity of the tales; I'm not sure how hard Doyle worked on all of them. But in toto, they are neat little packages. Lots of clues here into the make-up of Holmes himself, and a great way to end several late neat not-too-long story at a time. Great good fun!!

Awesome. Super fun read!!

Best book ever!!!!!!!!. Loved it.

WOW!. I never thought about reading this book, but now that i have read it, I wish I could have read it before an I'm not even a teen yet!

Astonishing. The best book ever created

Great. I haven't finished it and yet I still love it because I like mysteries.

Excellent. Amazing. Download it.

Classic. Doyle is great as always, and love being able to travel with some good stuff on the iPad too. No such thing as too long for a good book.

Sherlock Holmes. A wonderfully textured book with likable characters. Anyone can love Holmes's amazing deductions! Great book!

The Adventures of Sherlock Holmes. Amusant et représentatif d'une époque. Certaines enquêtes sont faciles à déduire mais gardent quand même leur côté divertissant.

The Adventures of Sherlock Holmes. Well narrated and very interesting tales.

Adventures of Sherlock Holmes. Magnificent. The stories are rich in character and environment. The writing has brevity as well as clarity. Triumphant.

Good.... Great book but it's kind of too long.

Great book. I loved this book I actually finished it. If you knew me you would know that is a huge compliment.

AWESOME!. The Sherlock Holmes series is quite enthralling. But you have to read this book, it's amazing!!!!!!
