Sherlock Holmes 4.3 out of 5 based on 0 ratings. 411 reviews.

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.

Sherlock Holmes is a great role model for young children from the ages of 8-12. I stared reading his stories when I was 7, I am 9 now and have been reading them ever since. See I think Holmes would be my favorite person but Nancy Drew is my role model. But I get my tecnices and judgment from Holmes but my courge and pride of sleuthing from Nancy. But they must be the bestpeople in my book life. They are my best friends. Now you can see I would oviously love to read Nancy Drew. So if you guessed I loved to read them you are right. What I do is read a Holmes book and then I Nancy Drew book. I hope you liked my review!

I love the sherlock stories. I just wanted to say this book is legally available free (because apparently the copyright has expired on the original books) from Project Gutenberg (google it) along with my others.

I loved the first Holmes story so much that I decided to buy this full edition instead of continuing to put up with the frequent typos in the free scanned version. However, I already found one mistake: the link to Chapter 4 of The Sign of Four takes me to a much later story instead. I hope this paid e-book isn't as full of mistakes as the free version, or I'll be annoyed, since you can't return an e-book (I don't think so anyway).

Summary: This book contains relatively short stories of Holmes' adventures and mysteries with Watson. The first story, "A Study in Scarlet" introduces the reader to John H. Watson, a doctor who had just come back from the war in Afghanistan and Sherlock Holmes, a "consulting detective." The two men has become roommate through a common friend, and began their first case together with the peculiar murder of Enoch J. Drebber. With his detailed analysis of the crime, he was able to figure out the culprit while the two main officers on the case struggled to even get a lead. The second part of this story explains the event that lead up to the murder, and how Holmes figures everything out. The other stories I have read so far include The Sign of Four, and "A Scandal in Bohemia" which all follow how Holmes and Watson solve mysteries together. Themes: There are many themes incorporated into the series of Sherlock Holmes, with some being more obvious that others. For example friendships deepen with time and as you read the stories you can see the friendship between Holmes and Watson deepen as they solve more mysteries. Likes: I really like this book, and can say that I am a huge Sherlock Holmes fan, and have been one even before the movies came out. Some things that I noticed that I really enjoyed in the book was its use of metaphors. Being written in Watson's point of view also was a good choice on the author's part. It keeps the readers in suspense and wanting to know more, and try to figure out the mystery ourselves. The reader is also in awe when Holmes reveals the culprit and how he deduced all of it. Dislikes: I didn't really dislike anything except the use of advanced vocabulary at times. Also since this was written by an Englishman, their are some provincial words and phrases that I don't understand. Who should read: I would recommend this book to anyone, in high school or older, who likes mysteries. If you enjoy a challenge and have a pretty advanced vocabulary, some could even start reading these stories in middle school. People who also enjoyed the movies will probably also enjoy these. Recommendations: I would also recommend the second and third books of this collection. They are worth their money, even if you can find most the the stories online now.

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.

Volume 1 of the Sherlock Holmes series is absolutely great for introducing the great detective Sherlock Homes and his companion, Dr. Watson, who has accompanied Holmes in many of his adventures. This book includes all different types of mysteries, like murder, crime, blackmail, and other bloodthirsty mysteries. It's a thrilling book, and I recommend it to anyone who loves mysteries. This book will definitely make you want to buy the second volume!

I remember reading the kids versions of these stories years ago, and I appreciate them now more than I did back then. I bought this version because it had every Sherlock Holmes story for a really low price. Having it on my Nook beat having to carry my 4 inch hardback version to work everyday! I could get lost in these stories for hours. Doyle must have been in interesting man to be able to turn out such stimulating works. I would have liked to spend and afternoon on a porch talking to him... or better yet in the famed sitting room on Baker Street! A true classic, and a must read!

I'm not in any way a fan of crime/mystery books. Never have been, and never will be perhaps. However, I could not put this book down. For me, it was purely my love for and interest in the characters Sherlock Holmes and Doctor John Watson, and I was completely satisfied. There was such chemistry between the two men. Also, the stories kept me guessing, and despite the fact that they seemed a bit redundant, all well done and unique. Intensly fascinating, surprisingly witty, deeply intimate, and wonderfully engaging, Sir Arthur Conan Doyle's stories draw you in and take hold of you imagination. A wonderlful world to be lost in on a rainy day.

Having been acquainted with Sherlock Holmes in film and T.V. from Basil Rathbone to Robert Downey jr., I thought I would pick up one of collections to see if the stories were really any good. The Bantam Classics version was priced right, the stories were in chronlogical order, and the introduction was spot on and gave a good overview of the book. A fast entertaining read(1000 plus pages), well recommended. Oh, by the way, I think I like the Jeremy Brett version of Holmes of all of them.

The book has more than 20 stories which will test your powers of observation and deduction. I was only able to guess the outcome of two of the detective's tales. Each story is different; each set of clues is unique; each line of reasoning is flawless; each result is obvious once Sherlock explains it.

This is my first time reading through the Sherlock Holmes stories, and I am very glad I purchased this edition. The format is easy to read, and it's easy to navigate to different stories.

Absolutely an amazing read! I felt smarter just by reading it! Its a truly wonderful collection that will entertain anyone with a craving for a good book. I highly suggest this collection to any sort of reader. The short stories are great for a quick fix while the novels allow room for pondering and deduction.

I love Sherlock and it was great to get all of his adventures in one book for only 2.99. This volume is a must buy and I have not had any of the problems detailed in the other reviews despite finishibg all 1638 pages of it.

I must say I read one the books on my sisters Ipad and it was really good I only read like 3 chapters and so far it was really good. I like mysteries and sherlock holmes was a detective so he is always solving crimes and I thought that was cool. I would definiley say if you like mysteries and surprises you should read all the books.

If you want some amazing mysteries, Sherlock Holmes is for you. It's a challenging book but definitely worth your time. I like the mysteries which seem so impossible and yet they turn out to be so obvious and interesting. Some of the best are Case of Identity, Red-Headed League, Five Orange Pips, The Man with the Twisted Lip and, if you'd want a thriller, Sign of Four . Watson, the narrator and Sherlock's companion, like most readers, also tries to figure out Holmes' methods but, like most of us, has to have them explained over and over an over again. It's thanks to him I wasn't left in the dark. Sherlock Holmes is all in all captivating, smart and to good to drop or even put it down.

Great colection, reads well on an android and windows. I'm re-reading these for the 40th or so time. Doyle was just awesome, and I don't have to carry my brick hardcover version of this same collection. I'm slowly moving all my ebooks to Nook, great support both on windows and android.

This is a timeless classic that will be on the shelves for my children and my children's children to enjoy. I enjoy mysteries so this was the ideal book for me. It's hard to top Doyle's amazing stories. Possibly my favorite part of this book is watching the puzzle fall into place. It's amazing to see how everyone still enjoy the writing and I strongly believe that readers will still enjoy the story in many decades to come.
