What if there was a man that could solve any mystery, murder, even remember the tattoo on your elbow? Well guess what? There is. His name is Sherlock Holmes. Sherlock Holmes has always been a mysterious man, who always thinks differently than others. Most people jump to conclusions, but he doesn't run to them, he chases them, until he captures them. He always thinks twice. His clothing is what you might say different. He wears a double sided hat, and smokes a pipe. He remembers everything he see [...]
Unlike the other books about Sherlock Holmes, I thought the story in this book wasn't really motivating. As for this book did not really give me a lot of expressions to the story. No excitement, no new thought (the story was too obvious, guessed what will happen right away). In one statement, not entertaining as much. In my opinion, I think that the story of Arsen Lupin was better. I don't really encourage you to read this book, but some people might read it anyway.Roses are RedViolets are BlueI [...]
A brilliant London-based "consulting detective", Sherlock Holmes is famous for his intellectual prowess, and is renowned for his skillful use of astute observation, deductive reasoning and inference to solve difficult cases.Stories included in this unabridged edition includes:"The Adventure of the Greek Interpreter" ~ Mr. Melas, a Greek interpreter, tells a rather unnerving experience to Mycroft Holmes, who like his brother Sherlock Holmes, is remarkably endowed with powers of observation and de [...]
This is the first collection of Sherlock Holmes stories I've read. I liked them, although I felt a little gypped because the reader isn't meant to solve the cases using the clues. The author withholds vital information until the big reveal at the end of each story. So with Father Brown stories, or even Encyclopedia Brown stories, you get all the information up front, and then spend a few moments racking your brain trying to guess whodunnit, then give up, and read on for the solution. With these [...]
I enjoyed this short collection of stories about Sherlock Holmes, although compared to some of his other adventures, this one didn't grip me as much as I'd have liked. I think one or two of the mysteries have appeared in other anthology collections about Mr. Holmes, as some did seem familiar to me, which might have added to me feeling a little disconnected from this collection. Normally, I love reading stories about the detective as I find Sherlock Holmes a very interesting and fun character to [...]
This book contains different mystery stories, some of it are really hard to fathom or deduce as you read along while some can give you a hint or two, only if you pay attention to the narrative story of the crime scenes. I find the Kindle version all right in terms of the format and presentation of the texts. However, this original novel, if I may conclude is quite difficult for me to understand. I would need to repeat a phrase or paragraphs just to digest the wordings. I think this is written ba [...]
Who is the world-famous, crime-solving detective that can deduce who you are and where you come from by just looking at you? Sherlock Holmes. I love this book not just because I like to read mystery and suspense but because every story is quite short but interesting ( if that makes any sense;). I really recommend this to everyone because even though set in Victorian London, the book makes you feel that you have travelled back in time to when Sherlock Holmes existed. I am not going to spoil the p [...]
I very rarely read mysteries. I knew Sherlock Holmes was supposed to be amazing (and he is) but i always thought he was probably an overrated character. But then I read a play on one of his books, and I found it fascinating. Every little thing draws a logical and probable conclusion from him, and every case is well solved. At times he fails, tho. Some stroies disturb me. Like the one on the KKK. some confoozle me a bit because it's beyond my understanding, but oh well
I love Sherlock Holmes. The short stories in this book are very good. The language can be sometimes hard to understand because of the old fashioned language and I had to read some of the sentences twice but all the same I really enjoyed this book. It made me love Sherlock Holmes even more. The short stories are indeed a very good way to tell about Sherlock Holmes cases. The way Sherlock solves the cases really is amazing. I really enjoyed it.
I think this book is good. This book had a lot of remembering to do. Also this book had a lot of crime and action going on. You have to remember where they are and what is happening because it has a lot of details to pay attention to. Lastly this book has very good vocabulary and has a lot of big words.
Totally enjoyed this set of short stories! Mine were titled "The Adventures of Sherlock Holmes"; not sure if the "mysterious" was added later or why the difference, but whatever. Doyle's tales are perfect for short stories, actually better I think (or should I say simply more enjoyable) for modern readers than the novels. Highly, highly recommend for all ages.
Arthur Conan Doyle's iconic master of logic and detective calculation comes through time and again in the well-known and beloved mysteries of Sherlock Holmes. With Doyle's unmatched atmospheric evocation of Victorian London, unforgettable leads, and imaginative mysteries, Sherlock Holmes is delightful.
I love the short stories, it's easy to read a chapter while the kids nap. Some of the stories were a little hard to follow, mostly because of the older language and being unfamiliar with London and that time period.
