Format: Kindle Edition
I have been re-reading the whole Holmes canon and this is the third installment. While I enjoyed A Study in Scarlet and The Sign of Four very much, I feel that this is where Doyle really got a handle on these characters and the way to tell these stories. It may well be that Holmes and Watson are better suited to the short story format than the novel/novella format.

I thoroughly enjoyed this collection of very different stories, ranging from a rather light hearted jilted lover mystery that introduces Holmes to one of the few people to ever best him, to a dark and deadly entanglement with the KKK in which Holmes can be said to cross a line by threatening his adversary with death. What happens? Read the stories. They are fantastic. Every one of them clever and varied and every one with a master's touch.

I also must praise this edition. If you are going to e-read this then get the Top 5 edition. It is very well done with lots of original illustrations that made the stories even more fun to read. If buying a stand alone e-book, I would get no other edition.

3 of 3 people found the following review helpful By Audiobook Bandit on November 16, 2011
Format: Paperback
This is a collection of 12 stories about the great detective. They are well-written, and each one takes about an hour to listen to, which made them perfect for my one-hour commute.

I'd never read any Sherlock Holmes, and I anticipated that the cases would be totally un-solvable. But it turns out that the clues provided during the narrative are often quite revealing, and it's frequently possible to guess the ending. This is particularly true of some stories, in which clues that were (I suppose) meant to be subtle to a British audience of the late 1800s, are now glaringly obvious. One story, for example uses the initials "KKK" for an evil secret society. `What could it be?' wonders sidekick Dr. Watson. Of course, any US citizen today knows what those initials stand for. However, although one can often guess the ending, it's tricky to catch all of the clues. I kept myself entertained by trying to catch as many of the clues as I could. I never managed to catch every one.

One thing I'm curious about is how many of these stories were archetypes of their plots. Several of the plots were very familiar to me because I'd seen or read similar stuff in movies & books. But it occurred to me: maybe these were the originals! I don't know enough about mystery writing to know whether that's the case or not.

Sir Athur Conan Doyle is in my estimation the greatest mystery writer ever. This eBook certainly does his work justice, especially the inclusion of the early illustrations.

Sherlock Holmes # 3

Happily married and busy with his medical practice, Watson always seems able to drop everything when Holmes wants his help. Contains: A Scandal in Bohemia, The Red-Headed League, A Case of Identity, The Boscombe Valley Mystery, The Five Orange Pips, The Man With the Twisted Lip, The Adventure of the Blue Carbuncle, The Adventure of the Speckled Band, The Adventure of the Engineer's Thumb, The Adventure of the Noble Bachelor, The Adventure of the Beryl Coronet, The Adventure of the Copper Beeches.

eBook downloaded from Gutenberg. Holmes is more sympathetic in this collection than the earlier books but still remote from the concerns of the everyday world, and many of the stories are closer to horror than I like. The stories themselves are extremely clever mysteries and classics in the genre. The Gutenberg file is mostly free of errors.

The Adventures of Sherlock Holmes stories. The original illustrations brought the story to life. Most of our modern day detective stories are built on the antics and methods of Sherlock Holmes.

As first time reader of Sherlock I was really drawn in to these short stories. Easy to read brain stimulation. Love the illustrations too, they really make it.

I already have the same book from a previous purchase, but when I discovered this version had copies of the original artwork that went into the magazines where Sherlock Holmes was serially published, I just had to get it. It was well worth it. A simple "double click" blows up the picture on my screen. It makes me feel like I'm actually part of what the original readers experienced...the only difference is I already know how the stories end. I love the artwork. It brings an additional dimension to the works.
