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.

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!

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.

5.0 out of 5 stars Who doesn't love Good old Sherlock Dec 10 2013
By Artistjohn TOP 500 REVIEWER
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
I have buzzed through half this collection in a week...I cannot lay my new Kindle down..It is so exciting to get back into reading again..
What with the drivel on TV these days..I go to bed early just to read...My eyes just fly across the pages and I adore the fact that to turn a page I need only use one hand...keeps everything nice and toasty under the covers in this cold winter we are having this year..

5.0 out of 5 stars Kindle Version Review April 9 2013
Format:Kindle Edition
This is a fantastic deal on an equally fantastic collection of short stories and novels. Every Sherlock Holmes tale is here and the ebook is well organized with a handy table of contents. As for the content itself, it's nothing short of brilliant. Holmes and Watson are both engaging characters and one can almost feel as though they are solving the crimes right along with them.

5.0 out of 5 stars Great value at a low price March 3 2008
Format:Paperback
After visiting the Sherlock Holmes Museum in London, I found great interest in this famous fictional detective. I read most of the Sherlock Holmes books online, but eventually I decided to get a copy for collection. This edition, I believe, is the most economical one that fulfills the purpose. The book is thick, and the paper is okay, but thin. So if you buy it for collection, or you would only read it once or twice, I supposed it would be adequate. However, if you like to study on Sherlock Holmes thoroughly, you probably would need a more enduring copy.

Format:Paperback
I thought this is not complete Sherlock Holmes. I was wrong!! It has not only All 58 Strand Magazine version stories fully illustrated but also Two non-Strand Novels (non illustrated).
So, This is The MOST Economical Complete Sherlock Holmes Fully Illustrated!!!
Even if you have another version already, Must have this too!!

4.0 out of 5 stars Tribute to Dr. Joseph Bell May 9 2001
Format:Hardcover
Many people do not realize that Sherlock Holmes is really based on a real person! When Doyle was attending medical school, one of his professors, Dr. Joseph Bell, could deduce the life of his patients by simple observation. This seed eventually blossomed into Sherlock Holmes.
To begin with, we all know who he is and what he is about, but we can take the next step and actually read the stories behind the icon. Most Sherlockians agree that it is best not to start with "A study in Scarlet." I think it is best to start with the collection "Adventures of Sherlock Holmes," with the story "A scandal in Bohemia" then rad your way through several of the collations. then you can go back and read "A Study in Scarlet," and "The Sign of Four." Doyle's writing gets better as the stories progress, until you hit "The Hound of the Baskervilles."
AS been noted, Holmes becomes a bit of an addiction. Doyle is that good of a writer. As I said, everyone knows who he is, like Tarzan, Elvis, or Madonna.
The only drawback is that some of Doyle's earlier stories can get a bit tedious and somewhat formulaic at times. But the attraction is still there!
Yes, it is worth the money to buy the complete Sherlock "cannon!"
