  • Nice..

    I was quite surprised by the modern feel of Doyle's writing. The book is organized like a collection of short stories, each of the tales being mostly autonomous. My past experience with the mystery genre is very limited, but I was pleased to find that Sherlock Holmes approaches his cases methodically, with clues and revelations both flowing regularly. It keeps most of the stories from having that "clever twist" at the end. There may not be enough information for the reader to predict the truth, as Holmes depends as much on his recollection of previous cases and obscure trivia as he does on his own analytical powers of the evidence at hand. But perhaps the best thing I can say about the book is that, while feeling engrossed in the details being presented, I never became preoccupied with trying to deduce the endings. It is more fun to relax and watch Holmes do his thing

    Thanks for your feedback!

  • Excellent....

    This has been my bedtime reading for a couple of months now, and I'm sad to see it go. In this context (a compilation of 4 novels and 56 short stories) Holmes and Watson must be one of the earliest soap duos - and perform admirably in providing the reader with a nightly window on their extraordinary yet safe and comfortable world. The writing style is steadfastly Victorian, and I frequently resorted to my Kindle's dictionary function to help me over the odd linguistic hurdle - but at no time did I find myself getting bogged down amidst treacly prose. Conan Doyle is a great one for sticking to the facts. I've been wondering if I could ever solve any of the mysteries - given that Holmes does so solely by logic - but my conclusion is that it is probably more enjoyable to ride alongside in blissful ignorance, in the manner of narrator Watson himself!

    Thanks for your feedback!

  • must reads

    Absolutely loved it. I read them over one winter, spending the holiday afternoons reading one story after another on the terrace. I just couldnt keep the books down. Once I reached the second book I was so afraid of running out of stories that I started preserving them, forcing myself to take breaks. It was a wonderful winter.
