Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher

Since his first appearance in Beeton's Christmas Annual in 1887, Sir Arthur Conan Doyle's Sherlock Holmes has been one of the most beloved fictional characters ever created. Now, in two volumes, this new Bantam edition presents all 56 short stories and four novels featuring Conan Doyle's classic hero--a truly complete collection of Sherlock Holmes's adventures in crime now available in paperback! Volume II begins with The Hound Of The Baskervilles, a haunting novel of murder on eerie Grimpen Moor, which has rightly earned its reputation as the finest murder mystery ever written. The Valley Of Fear matches Holmes against his archenemy, the master of imaginative crime, Professor Moriarty. In addition, the loyal Dr. Watson has faithfully recorded Holmes's feats of extraordinary detection in such famous cases as the thrilling "Adventure of the Red Circle," Holmes's tragic and fortunately premature farewell in "The Final Problem," and the 12 baffling adventures from The Casebook Of Sherlock Holmes. Conan Doyle's incomparable tales bring to life a Victorian England of horse-drawn cabs, fogs, and the famous lodgings at 221B Baker Street, where for more than forty years Sherlock Holmes earned his undisputed reputation as the greatest fictional detective of all time.

Really has kept his attention.

It is not hard to see why so many have said they will read these stories again for the sheer pleasure it brings to revisit a long lost friend.

Format: Paperback
Of the two volumes, this happens to be my favourite. Matter of fact, this is my favourite piece of fiction to date. There's some great stories in this volume, particularly, The Adventure of the Devil's Foot. The Bruce Partington Plans, Shoscombe Old Place etc.

The Case Book Stories found in this volume, the last twelve are probably the most romantic (not to be confused with romance, although there is some of that), on the part of Holmes' biographer Dr. John Watson (Doyle) and not as deeply scientific as some of the earlier works found in the first volume, like the Five Orange Pips.

The beauty of this volume though, works upon your imagination using your fascination with Holmes's outlandishness and quirky behavior and Watson's down-home bed-side manner.

A classic volume, indeed.

Sherlock Holmes is a great read, and there's no disputing it. I own both volumes of complete novels and stories and I have enjoyed them a lot. This publication allows for continuous reading of the sherlock holmes series.

However, with the abundance of sherlock holmes publications, I believe this publication of Complete Novels and Stories to be the best because it shows all the stories in chronological order. Even though within the stories, chronology isn't that important, I have heard many complaints by my friends that they had wished they could've read them in order, to experience them the way the average reader during Doyle's time could've read them.

For this publication, the text is rather small, so be cautious if you cannot feel uncomfortable reading small text. Personally, I enjoy the small text.

If you're only going to buy one of the volumes of the Complete Sherlock Holmes, then this is the one I would recommend. The later stories are very good, too, but the ones in this one are better.

I've run the course now and followed along through every adventure spanning Sherlock's 27 year career and find myself feeling as so many of Sir Arthur Conan Doyle's readers felt in his time...I don't want to say goodbye.

I had never read Sherlock Holmes and have never been a big fan of short stories, having found most boring, uninteresting and unimaginative. The latter I'm sorely lacking in myself, perhaps all three,, so I pick up on this easily when reading someone else's work. Mr. Doyle was none of those things and has the ability to grasp the attention early on and only make you greedy for more. I don't know where he got all his ideas but imagination was not his weakness and one of my favorites from the casebook files must always be "The "Lion's Mane. Who would have thought the culprit to be the world's largest jellyfish?? And a story that brought back childhood memories on St. Augustine beach encountering my first jellyfish, though obviously not the fatal results!

If you're someone who enjoys short stories of the titillating type with only brief intervals in which to read, this book along with volume 1, comes highly recommended. One doesn't notice the hundreds of pages comprising these volumes, only a sadness at them coming to an end from a life well lived in it's bringing so much enjoyment to others. It is not hard to see why so many have said they will read these stories again for the sheer pleasure it brings to revisit a long lost friend.

Many thanks as well to all those hard working souls at Wikipedia and Bing translation for making my reading experience always one of learning as well as enjoyment.

I don't know how I missed the Sherlock Holmes books when I was growing up, but I'm so glad to find them now. This is the kind of book that should be required reading in high school, because it will light the fires of those who don't particularly love to read. Those who do love to read, young people and adults alike, will simply love these stories. Intelligent, full of twists and quirks, and just plain fun!

I just recently got interested in reading the adventures of Sherlock Holmes and Dr. Watson. This is the second Sherlock Holmes book for me. I particularly love this story collection and would recommend it to anyone who likes to do some brain-gymnastics in order to follow the twisted cases. Some of the stories are short enough to read them over breakfast, which wakes up my brain and gets me ready for work.

This is the second in the series of Sherlock Holmes paperback collection of stories. I read the stories in my teen years, but this series has made it very simple to re-read and refresh myself with the Sherlock Holmes stories. A very nice set and I recommend them both to be given as a gift to younger people that haven't the Sherlock Holes stories before.
