    Not quite Sherlock Holmes, but interesting....

    This collection of Doyle short stories contains a diverse range of topics. Doyle writes of ghosts, mind control, animals/monsters unknown to science, assorted supernatural topics (including ancient Egypt), and just plain old bad guys up to no good.
    Although most people only know of Doyle through Sherlock Holmes, the intro describes his interest in the supernatural and the fact that his literary career was not built on Sherlock Holmes with an occasional other story written in the meantime (as most people may believe). Due to his interest in the occult, these stories were apparently just as important to him as the Holmes mysteries.
    The stories in this collection may not pack the punch that the Sherlock Holmes mysteries do. However, Doyle writes these in the same compelling style-Victorian setting, interesting characters, and mysterious atmosphere (usually told 1st person in journal format, similar to Dr Watson). Some of the stories are a bit weak, but most are interesting and entertaining. In summary, this collection is worth the read if you enjoy Doyle, but don't quite measure in regards to the overall quality of the Holmes collection.
    As far as being a nook format, this collection is clean and has minimal format errors in the text. The menu is good and has a link to each story, as well as a short intro to Doyle and these stories.
