7 of 7 people found the following review helpful By M. Moffatt on February 28, 2005
Format: Paperback
Michael and Mollie Hardwick's indispensable and affectionate "Sherlock Holmes Companion" gathers together all the various elements in the stories to provide a unique reference source. Included is a comprehensive Who's Who of characters, a concise summary of the plot of each story, detailed biographies of both Holmes and Watson, an anthology of their often witty aphorisms, and an essay on the author's life and relation to his immortal and much-loved characters.

232 pages long, a great reference book to dip into to refresh your memory of a case or character.

4 of 4 people found the following review helpful By Ogun Eratalay on September 22, 2006
Format: Paperback
This book is a wonderful guide for a Sherlock Holmes reader.

The contents of the book are 1.Who's who 2.Plots of stories 3.A sampler of quotations 4.Mr.Holmes and Dr.Watson 5.Sir Arthur Conan Doyle

One of the remarkable part is who's who. You can find anybody who is quoted in the series, even the smallest role player. The writers have carefully selected and classified the quotations as well. You can glance upon the storylines to remember what that episode was about in plots of stories.The writers Michael and Mollie Hardwick had done a great job. Definetely a book worth buying.

Format: Paperback
As the other reviewers note, "The Sherlock Holmes Companion" by Michael and Mollie Hardwick is an excellent reader's guide to the Sherlock Holmes Canon. It provides a complete list of all characters in the stories, a selection of quotations grouped by subject, a summary of the plots of the tales (which are great memory refreshers and, thankfully, do not reveal the solutions), a joint biography of Holmes and Watson, and a biography of the "literary agent," Sir Arthur Conan Doyle. The book also features many of the original illustration by Sidney Paget from "Strand Magazine." In short, this is a beautifully presented book and is written with a great affection for the Sherlock Holmes stories.

When I was a child, I was thoroughly immersed in all things Sherlock Holmes, and "The Sherlock Holmes Companion" was probably my favorite secondary text. My local library had a copy, and I must have checked it out a dozen times at least. I spent many hours with this book, and it still brings back pleasant memories...
