Now, for the not so great things. The font size is one larger than every other Kindle book I have. Why, I have no idea, but I have to change my font size when I go to it, and then when I switch to another book.
The Table of Contents - it does work, but not all of the stories are separately listed. The Last Bow collection, for example, the separate stories aren't in the TOC, so you have to start with Wisteria Lodge, and have to page through to find the story you want, unless you know the location number. Still, the majority of the stories are listed in the TOC - just strange to me that they didn't list all of them.
However, these are minor quibbles. It is a great collection with some illustrations, not the Paget ones, unfortunately, I think, but for a great deal for a low, low, price. There is a Paget profile of Holmes, that I don't recognize.
The non-Holmes stories are interesting - some are quite predictable, but the flying one was really odd.

If I am going to pay anything for any Kindle item, I expect it to be done better than the free Kindle classics. I was comparing one of the sections in this item to the free version of that section available on Amazon, The Adventures of Sherlock Holmes, and the free version was more accurate.
- wonderful read, all-time classic
- this is the really complete Shorlock Holmes collection, consisting of all 4 novels and 56 short stories, 60 in total
- just $1
- lots of typos, can get annoying
- no page count
- the short stories in "The Return of Sherlock Holmes" are in alphabetical instead of chronological order. The correct one is:
01. The Empty House
02. The Norwood Builder
03. The Dancing Men
04. The Solitary Cyclist
05. The Priory School
06. Black Peter
07. Charles Augustus Milverton
08. The Six Napoleons
09. The Three Students
10. The Golden Pince-Nez
11. The Missing Three-Quarter
12. The Abbey Grange
13. The Second Stain
I give this edition 3+ out of 5 stars, with my only complains being about the execution. You will enjoy your time, but won't get the flawless experience these stories deserve.
Many people are complaining about some "mormon" book implemented in this edition. This is just a chapter of the first Sherlock Holmes story and is intended to be there. It is ridiculous some people give 1 star just because they can't follow the storyline.
Also, there is a new complete Sherlock for kindles on Amazon, which seems to be more diligently made. May want to check it out...
