"This is a Classic"
4 stars"
Purchased on Mighty Ape

Good books always beat a movie version, no matter how good the movie is. Sherlock Holmes is a classic, enjoyable to read and if you like a puzzle, you can try to solve the cases as you read. Easy to read stories, which shows Holmes ‘warts and all’ and as he is meant to be. Also very interesting reading in regards to the history of the time. This is one of the Penguin series that is a must have. And no, Holmes never said ‘Elementary my dear Watson’, this was invented by the very early movies.

Description

Out of his smoke-filled rooms in Baker Street stalks a figure to cause the criminal classes to quake in their boots and rush from their dens of iniquity . . .

The twelve mysteries gathered in this first collection of Sherlock Holmes and Dr Watson's adventures reveal the brilliant consulting detective at the height of his powers. Problems involving a man with a twisted lip, a fabulous blue carbuncle and five orange pips tax Sherlock Holmes's intellect alongside some of his most famous cases.

Author Biography:

Sir Arthur Conan Doyle was born in Edinburgh in 1859 and died in 1930. He studied medicine at Edinburgh University and later set up practice as a doctor at Southsea. It was while waiting for patients to arrive that he began to write and it was the success of his many adventure stories that allowed him to actively pursue the many causes that captured his attention, whether it was divorce law reform or the issuing of steel helmets to troops. However, it is for the enduring appeal of his Sherlock Holmes' stories that Conan Doyle will always be remembered.Sherlock Holmes is the world's most famous consulting detective. He resides at 221B Baker Street in London, where prospective clients can always reach him. While the police are known to make extensive use of his talents and the criminal fraternity to tremble with fear or fury at mere mention of his name, it is to the most bizarre or thoroughly inexplicable of mysteries that Sherlock Holmes - together with his dogged companion and amanuensis Dr Watson - is most often drawn.
