I picked this up for free during a Kindle promotion - while the free pricing is outstanding, I would have certainly paid a few bucks to have all of Doyle's works in one place and formatted properly for the Kindle.
First, there are numerous transcription errors, with obvious missing paragraphs, misspellings, and textual oddities.
Next, the illustrations are nonexistent. These are critical in understanding several of the cases, especially the case of the dancing men, and but are only indicated in the ebook text as "GRAPHIC".
One last criticism of this edition is that it is more of an ad for Robert Ryan's book, as the introduction and epilogue are clearly designed to interest readers in that novel.
Mostly though, you will be drawn in by the incredible characters you meet and by the curious friendship between the faithful and stalwart Watson and the great logician, actor, and adventurer, Sherlock Holmes.
The only other recommendation I would have is that you pay careful attention to the great detective's instructions on thinking. You may very well find yourself paying more attention and seeming to be more intelligent than those peers around you. After all, everyone "sees", but how many observe?
It surprised me to find myself at the final page of this compilation of murder,mystery and mayhem. It's like saying goodbye to a friend or friends; because where goes where goes Holmes there be Watson. Unless of a matter of coarse Watson being sent ahead with step by step instructions,which of coarse he follows to the tee,he finds himself back in their apartment on baker street learning Holmes had him followed or even did so himself,perhaps disguised as an old lady with an umbrella(one of many) and that Holmes has done it again.Here we are again getting all the details of all we missed as Holmes necessarily fills us in!
I am going to miss those two or am I.
