Product Description

From Amazon

This volume, authorized by Sir Arthur Conan Doyle's estate, contains all 4 full-length novels and all 56 short stories featuring Sherlock Holmes. At over a thousand pages, the weighty tome is a perfect gift for budding amateur sleuths, and it is an ideal companion for a long stay on a desert island (or a leisurely trip through the English countryside). As the reader wades past the tense introductions of A Study in Scarlet and moves towards such classic tales as The Hound of the Baskervilles, "The Adventure of the Speckled Band," and "The Final Problem," she is sure to draw her own conclusions about Holmes's veiled past and his quirky relationship with his "Boswell," Watson. Doyle never revealed much about Holmes's early life, but the joy of reading the complete Holmes is assembling the trivia of each story into something like a portrait of the detective and his creator. By the end of the long journey through London and across Europe (with a long stopover at Reichenbach Falls), one is apt to have found a friend for life. --Patrick O'Kelley --This text refers to an alternate Hardcover edition.

5.0 out of 5 stars The Best Buy for Any Detective Story Fan April 7 2010
By WryGrin
Format:Hardcover|Verified Purchase
This is easily the best collection of UNABRIDGED Sherlock Holmes stories I've ever encountered. The cover is tastefully designed and has the feel of a "good old book" often lacking in today's modern printed works.

I've read in other reviews that "the print is too small"... I however, find that the print is no smaller than any other book more than two or three hundred pages long, and is clear and well spaced on the pages, which are light-wight to accomodate the weight of such a large volume.

The one and only thing I could say against it would be that it IS a large book, so anyone looking to read it on the bus is likely to have trouble, but then again, it's all of Doyle's works concerning our favorite detective, and that must be taken into concideration.

1.0 out of 5 stars Criminal March 22 2014
By JLC
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
This review has nothing to do with the work of the author but is solely based on the quality of the product I ordered and received.

To be clear, I refer directly to the paperback edition published by "Createspace"; Amazon displays the bookcover as green and cream, with the word bighousepub.com clearly visible on the back. Avoid ordering this one at all costs, it is a scam. I fell for it. I was unaware and unprepared for having to do due diligence in researching my purchasing options from Amazon, who I had previously considered to be a reputable web retailer.

When I received this book, it was obvious the cover was printed from a low resolution source material and gave the impression of having been done by someone with rudimentary Photoshop skills and a low-end printer. Upon looking inside, I was more shocked to find the pages filled with unformatted walls of text. All paragraphs, proper spacing, and carriage returns of any kind were completely removed, I can only guess to cram the work onto as few pages as possible. The result is unreadable.

I was unaware before ordering that Createspace is in fact an Amazon self-publishing company and it would appear that "bighousepub.com" are rip-off artists who have illegally published the edition through Amazon in order to score royalties from the odd sale to dupes like me.

It is an affront to the work of Sir Arthur Conan Doyle that someone would bastardize it and then capitalize upon it in such a manner, but the bigger travesty is that Amazon is party to the creation and distribution of this sham.

5.0 out of 5 stars A Timeless Classic Dec 31 2002
By A Customer
Format:Mass Market Paperback
This collection of stories about the famed detective Sherlock Holmes and his faithful "sidekick" Watson is truly a timeless classic. It is filled with intrigue, mystery, romance, vengeance and ,ultimately, murder. Its beautifully constructed plot and the whole motive of the murder, the clues and the amazing deductive powers of Sherlock Holmes will hardly fail to entertain you and keep you craving for more. Not only will you find crime and punishment on these pages, but also the unique world (the 19th century England) and personalities (cold-blooded Holmes and always left behind Watson) which Doyle has created.
There is one downside to this marvellous classic. When you are done reading the book and there are no more adventures to consume you will feel nostalgic. One could only wish to relax in the comfort of an armchair in front of a fireplace while a rainstorm rages outside and Sherlock Holmes is patiently absorbing the details of another case, on No. 221B Baker Street

3.0 out of 5 stars Poor binding on Doubleday hardcover edition June 15 2001
Format:Hardcover
To be a well-rounded person, you must read the wonderful stories of Sherlock Holmes and Dr. Watson. You will be amazed by the number of English expressions and culural assumptions that originate in these stories.
The Doubleday hardcover binding was atrocious, however. I bought this edition to read completely cover-to-cover, so I concede the edition was in for some heavy use. But the bound pages began to separate from the cover on the first day. By the time I was done. the cover was separated, and the bound pages had fallen into a number of chunks. Even the title print on the spine had been struck twice and appeared sloppy. The book was damaged beyond usefulness after one reading.
Read the stories, but don't get the Doubleday hardcover.

3.0 out of 5 stars Content vs Binding June 5 2002
By A Customer
Format:Hardcover
This my first foray into Holmes and I am thoroughly enjoying it. My only complaint is that the binding of this edition is beginning to come apart, in spite of gentle treatment. And I had bought this edition rather than the paperback because many large paperbacks have this very problem!

4.0 out of 5 stars Complete Sherlock Holmes May 10 2010
Format:Mass Market Paperback|Verified Purchase
I've only read the first two novels so far (more like novellas really) and have enjoyed them very much (perhaps with the exception of Mary - the movie version of her was so much better. I hate the weak, faint at the mere thought of blood type of female character and I have to say, ACD certainly has romance novelists beat in the love at first sight thing *laughs* Watson meets Mary and the next night asks her to marry him!).

My one complaint is with the books themselves. Yes, books, not book. I had wanted a complete collection in ONE book and the description here, as well as some of the reviews, said this was all in ONE but it's really two books in a box. The covers are like any typical paperback, they will come apart with rough usage. The print is also fairly typical, not overly small at all (this coming from someone with bad eyesight).

I do wish amazon.ca was selling the GORGEOUS Barnes and Noble leather bound complete collection (in ONE book) as the Barnes and Nobel site is refusing to let me actually order it. I really just bought this collection to read the stories/novels for the first time with the intention of getting a very good copy (cover wise) elsewhere. Definitely worth getting these books as a first time reader for such a low price, but if you're an avid fan of Holmes and are looking for a complete collection that will last a lifetime, I'd suggest checking out one of the leather bound editions.

Still blown away that these stories always have me guessing what the solution is to each mystery. But the thing that really keeps me reading is that I am rarely ever correct!
