All the stories are brilliant. The author will keep you clueless until the end of each case, and it is just fascinating how Sherlock Holmes is able to solve all the mysteries as if they were child´s play. I really really REALLY recommend this book, the stories are not complicated nor hard to follow. I think Sherlock Holmes is not only the best detective in history, but one of the biggest and brightest minds in all literature, he will make a mystery turn from unsolvable to simplicity itslef.

The contents are good. I was very annoyed with the size of the letters. Very tiny and Its almost hard to read. I just wish they had increased the font size. It felt like everything was crammed. Took the taste out of reading but the contents of course are good.
