This book is public domain. You can download it free on your ipad or pc from a number of sites ( goodreads is one of them) or just read it on your browser. So I advise against paying even a dollar for the kindle version. And if you wish to own a physical copy than in suggest buying one of the many hardcovers that include the complete Sherlock Holmes, not just the adventures.

You can solve most of these before the end, but that only because we have been raised on detective strategies. And, it started here (or just about).

I've already read the Sherlock Holmes stories, but after watching Sherlock on BBC with Benedict Cumberbatch and Martin Freeman.
The intro by one of the writers, adds a new spark to these wonderful mystery stories.

This collection is very long to read. After several stories, you find that there is not much variety. The stories are different but it comes out the same. I enjoyed the collection because I learned about Sherlock Holmes. I have heard many rumours about this character, including an episode in Start Trek next Generation, which seemed to define who he was. In this series you learn that he is very arrogant and demeaning. It's amazing that Watson stays on with him. There is no action scenes as such. The style is more like a report of murder crime. In the Star Trek episode, Data immediately solves a Holodeck crime almost before it occurs. Data explains by pointing out various details to come to the conclusion. That in essence is how these stories are put together. You get all the details, analyze it then cough up the answer. There is no real intrigue or any action scenes. I expected that his nemesis Moriarty to appear several times with action similar to the movies. However this is not the case. He appears only in one story. Unless this is not the complete collection?

The stories are written in the old style writing which makes it boring. You can stop on any page and pick it up the next day without missing anything. I found that after reading a good portion of this collection I reverted to reading one or two stories between other books so that I could eventually finish the collection. It was worth reading to finally to get to know the real Sherlock Holmes and to be able to better compare with the movie versions, or even the Stark Trek Version!

I love these stories and the new BBC series Sherlock. Fun to see the new characters on the cover of the classic stories. Highly recommended!

By E. A Solinas HALL OF FAMETOP 10 REVIEWER on May 16 2010
Format: Paperback
Everybody knows him -- the pipe-smoking detective on Baker Street (with or without the movie-added deerstalker), who is able to deduce all sorts of things just by glancing at a person. "The Adventures of Sherlock Holmes" shows off Sir Arthur Conan Doyle's first collection of short stories involving Holmes, mingling human psychology with sometimes bizarre mysteries.

Holmes is visited by the masked King of Bohemia, who has a slight problem: he's engaged to a princess, but his former lover Irene Adler has a compromising letter that could jeopardize his future marriage. But Adler has a formidable brain of her own. Then Holmes is hired by a man who was hired by the mysterious Red-Headed League, and given a strange job... which is somehow connected to a criminal undertaking.

Among the other strange cases that Holmes and Watson undertake -- a missing fiance, a strange murder in Boscombe Valley, a dead man who was sent five orange seeds, a woman whose husband has utterly vanished, a blue jewel hidden in a Christmas turkey, a dead woman whose last words were "it was the band, the speckled band!", a young engineer given a dream job, an American heiress who vanishes directly after her wedding, a broken beryl coronet, and a young woman given a surreally weird job.

Sherlock Holmes mysteries come in two types:
1. The case is completely baffling, and Holmes is needed to unravel the knot of obscure clues.
2. The case seems straightforward, but Holmes is needed to connect seemingly unrelated clues to the crime in order to find the REAL perpetrator.

Who doesn't love a good mystery, especially one by Sir Arthur Conan Doyle? His creation Sherlock Holmes is the prototype for countless modern detective writers and continues to entertain us with unparalleled stories sparked by Holmes's brilliance and powers of reasoning. Abetted by his unforgettable sidekick, Dr. Watson, he is called upon to solve not only the most puzzling but the most dastardly cases.

We might say these adventures ably narrated by Ralph Cosham are a synthesis of Doyle's work. There are 12 stories in all from A Scandal in Bohemia to The Adventure of the Copper Beeches. It would be impossible for this listener/reader to pick a favorite but one that stands out in my mind is The Beryl Coronet.

First published in 1892 this story features a banker, Arthur Holder, who makes a sizeable loan to an established citizen. The Beryl Coronet, which is extremely valuable is left as security. Holder determines the Coronet would not be secure in the bank, so he takes it home and puts it in his personal safe. That night he's awakened by strange noises and finds Arthur, his son, with the Coronet in his hand. This scene is witnessed by Holder's niece, Mary, who keels over when she sees the broken Coronet.

Arthur seems most certainly to be guilty of damaging the priceless object yet Holmes remains to be convinced (as he so often is). Several issues muddy the waters - Arthur refuses to say anything; he will not admit guilt or claim innocence. How could he have broken the Coronet when Holmes who is quite strong cannot begin to do so? Fortunately, footprints in the snow outside Holder's house lead Holmes to the real thief.

Narrator Cosham who has been nominated several times for an Audie Award and whose readings have been named "Audio Best of the Year" by Publishers Weekly is the perfect voice for these stories - resonant, clear with timing that adds to the suspense.

Enjoy!
