I will assume that the reader of this review has read Sherlock Holmes before and is trying to pick which one of several options to download for his library. I will leave content analysis for other reviewers and discuss the technical merits of this particular download. The text is well edited, all the pages are there, and the links work, but their idea of "illustrated" means one microscopic picture every several stories. I have a copy in hardback of the same stories and there are usually half a dozen or so pictures for each story. It is still closer to the mark than anything else I have tried.

Great Idea . . . Needs to be better Quality

I loved the idea of having all the stories in one place not in two like the bound copies. The only reason I gave this book 3 stars is because my copy is missing two pages out of A Study in Scarlet. I read a couple of shorter stories before I went back to read the first ...
I loved the idea of having all the stories in one place not in two like the bound copies. The only reason I gave this book 3 stars is because my copy is missing two pages out of A Study in Scarlet. I read a couple of shorter stories before I went back to read the first novel and had no problems with them but A Study in Scarlet is missing two pages, so far. The really frustrating part is that the two pages that are missing are in mid conversation. The page before has Holmes and Watson talking and then a blank page and then the story continues. The missing page contains the rest of their conversation! Annoying.

    Incredibly difficult to navigate!

    1600+ page book roughly divided into Book 1 and Book 2, a jump of 900 pages. No hyperlinked table of contents!
