The Adventures of Sherlock Holmes by Arthur Conan Doyle Book Summary

An Apple Books Classic

You get not one, not two, but 25 gripping mysteries in Arthur Conan Doyle’s first of five collections of Sherlock Holmes short stories. Follow the brilliant and eccentric Holmes and his loyal sidekick, Dr. Watson, as they journey to lavish country estates to investigate baffling cases involving indiscreet royal affairs, cheetahs, redheads, and gypsies. Every one of Conan Doyle’s tales is full of surprising - but always logical - twists. (Fun fact: This book includes “The Speckled Band,” the author’s self-proclaimed favorite of all of his Sherlock Holmes short stories.)

The Adventures of Sherlock Holmes (Arthur Conan Doyle) Book Reviews

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

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..Score: 5/5

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

ThanksA wonderful set of stories. Thanks !.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.

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

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
