    Lot of Great, Forgotten, Writers Here

    Sure, everyone knows Doyle, but there were lots of really great authors in this collection that I have never heard of. It's a great introduction to the genre at a very low price. 50 books in one place! Awesome!

    Typos Distract From The Text

    I haven't gotten too far in this book; it's over a thousand pages. But I have been distracted by the number of typos that appear in the text of the works I've read so far. I've seen "back" for "bank" and "shill" for "still" and others. One or two such things would not be an issue for me, but I've read fewer than 100 pages and have seen enough for it to be annoying.
    I got this volume because it has several titles that I haven't read, and I expect I will enjoy reading new works, but those frequent typos are a real distraction for me. Others may not be bothered by such things.

    50 Classic Mystery Books.

    I found the stories very interesting, but all the wanna be Conan Doyle authors seem to get carried away with their descriptions of everything.

    Many Excellent Stories

    But take my advise skip Edgar Allan Poe The Narrative of Arthur Gordon Pym of Nantucket. What a waste of time reading this one story! The stories written by Wilkie Collins were so good I bought his complete works and I'm looking forward to reading them;

    Fantastic, particularly for thoses who love classic mysteries

    This is the best purchase I have made on Nook! I read most of these in hard copy many years ago, and had to work hard to get them, since they aren't your average modern book store fare. To have them all collected is a great boon.

    Great Collection

    I bought this because it seemed like a good idea to get so many books and stories at the same time for not a lot of money. There are quite a few authors I haven't read before, so it's an easy way of discovering authors you might not have read before.
