Ok. Ok

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

Bored. Bored bored bored

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.

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!!

Good book. Good book

Sherlock, always a good read!. 👍🏽

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

I have to. I am so

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.

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

Thanks. A wonderful set of stories. Thanks !

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

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.

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.. 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.

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!

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

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.

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!

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.

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

Trash. It was absolutely garbage

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

Woweee!. Sherlock Holmes is such a clever guy, his escapades will shock you. If you’ve only seen the TV show or movies, this Sherlock Holmes is a much more pleasant character and not quite as rude. Great stuff!

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

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.

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

Yum. It was a good book it also tasted good

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.

Good. Good

Tjruhfh. Djrbdxkrmdmbnrdnf

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

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

adventures of sherlock holmes. classic!

Volume !?. What, volume is this !?

Hot. Sexy 😜😜😜😜😜😜😜😜

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

Immaculate. Riveting

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!

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

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

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!

I’m going home for. I’m going home for

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

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

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. 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.

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

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

Excellent. Great to revisit these classic stories

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

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

Fascinating. Ingenious and extraordinary

Hello. Zxsbhdbhabxhshx

Sherlock Holmes. Fantastic

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

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

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.

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.

Sherlock Holmes. Good book I really liked the book

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.

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

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

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

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

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

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.

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

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.

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

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

Wisoko. Brilliant series of short mysteries.

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

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!

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

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

An amazing read. A true page Turner.

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.

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.

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.

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

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

Really Enjoyed It. An absolute classic and a must for anyone who enjoys detective stories.

RE: HERRON. @thek55 I found your review very engaging and helpful. Thanks!

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.

Good for testing iBook. If you want to try iBook, get this book...

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

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

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!

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.

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

Outstanding. The greatest detective if all time

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

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.

Amazballs. Best murder mistery book I've ever read

Sherlock Holmes. A good read!

Pretty cool. It’s a great book and all, but it takes too long to get to the action.

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.

Adore this book. I cannot express how much I adore this book! It’s fabulous! I’m reading it in my English class during our silent reading times, and my god, I never want to turn my device off, I’m just so interested in what will happen next!

Jofnpivrn. This book is great at!

Cool. Amazing

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.

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

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!!

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

Sherlock. Excellent, good read!

Good. Good book

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

Astonishing. The best book ever created

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

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

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 nights....one neat not-too-long story at a time. Great good fun!!

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

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

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.

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

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

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

Awesome. Super fun read!!

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

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

Rupert. This has everything a great book must have!

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

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

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.

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!

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.

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

Very good book. I liked it

The adventures of Sherlock Holmes. Picture yourself as Sherlock Holmes investigating every house looking for clues. Read this book and figure out the crimes of detection and picture all the crimes in this book.

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

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

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

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.

Excellent. Amazing. Download it.
