The Casebook of Sherlock Holmes [NOOK Book]

Overview

I fear that Mr. Sherlock Holmes may become like one of those popular tenors who, having outlived their time, are still tempted to make repeated farewell bows to their indulgent audiences.

One likes to think that there is some fantastic limbo for the children of imagination, some strange, impossible place where the beaux of Fielding may still make love to the belles of Richardson, where Scott's heroes still may strut, Dickens's delightful ...

Overview

I fear that Mr. Sherlock Holmes may become like one of those popular tenors who, having outlived their time, are still tempted to make repeated farewell bows to their indulgent audiences. This must cease and he must go the way of all flesh, material or imaginary. One likes to think that there is some fantastic limbo for the children of imagination, some strange, impossible place where the beaux of Fielding may still make love to the belles of Richardson, where Scott's heroes still may strut, Dickens's delightful Cockneys still raise a laugh, and Thackeray's world lings continue to carry on their reprehensible careers. Perhaps in some humble corner of such a Valhalla, Sherlock and his Watson may for a time find a place, while some more astute sleuth with some even less astute comrade may fill the stage which they have vacated.

    The Case-Book of Sherlock Holmes is the last of the Holmes short

    The Case-Book of Sherlock Holmes is the last of the Holmes short story collections written by Arthur Conan Doyle. In general, the stories are not as deep as the previous publications, but most are more fun to read and are somewhat more innovative than the previous Holmes stories. Some of the plots tend more toward the horror (e.g. a possible vampire), medical fiction (e.g. humans taking monkey DNA), and twisted financial scam type of storylines. I think this may have been the first time that suicide was used to frame another individual in classic literature. The mysteries are almost never easy to figure out...mostly because the author doesn't provide you with the clues you need to solve the puzzles (unlike the previous books), so the surprise usually lasts until the end of each story. Great fun that can be ingested in bite size pieces when you need to kill a few minutes at a time. A fitting end for one of the most enduring characters ever created.

    Rating is for the quality of this copy.

    It is not worth ten dollars. Chapters aren't marked in the contents, words are frequently broken up with spaces, and random blank pages are littered throughout.
