What an absolute pleasure and brought back some wonderful childhood memories. I received my Kindle for Christmas and immediately looked for books to download and when I saw Sherlock Holmes I couldn't wait. Having read several of the reviews on this page - i feel the need to intervene.
Holmes is not a policeman or action hero - he is a private investigator. Therefore he investigates - as he comments himself he craves cases that are interesting not merely run of the mill murders, those he leaves to scotland yard. The true power of doyles work is the heroes brain - holmes uses his skills for deduction to solve crime not his brawn. Doyle's stories have aged; younger readers who crave big suprises, action, action, and more action will be disappointed with this collection. But if you're a voracious reader, or you appreciate every little Of course!
I have Doyle's entire collection at home, illustrations and all, and I keep it in a treasure chest. Arthur Conan Doyle was always a better writer of short stories than of novels. This first collection of short stories of Sherlock Holmes has always been regarded as the best, although I suspect that is more because of its novelty at the time of publication than because of any lesser quality in the later short stories. Present day readers will be surprised at the selection of advantures and Doyle was obviously generous in his use of the term adventure. Five of the twelve stories in this volume do not involve crimes at all.
Some of the others involve only minor crimes and, while Holmes does solve the mysteries to his satisfaction he very rarely "catches" the criminal in the sense of having him arrested or tried. It says something about Doyle's perception of England that only three of the stories involve murder, and in each of the cases the murderer is either foreign or has spent much of his career abroad. None of this is meant to disparage Sherlock Holmes of his creator. It is impossible to read this book without becoming involved with the characters of Holmes and Watson, or developing an admiration for Holmes'work.
Each of Holme's cases at least those that we know of are always interesting. It's not action-packed, there are not that many chases through the streets of London and though Mr. Holmes packs a mean punch, he hardly resorts to violence. What makes this great is Holmes' genius combined with loyal Dr. This collection of twelve Sherlock Holmes stories were originally published in the Strand Magazine.
