Adventures of Sherlock Holmes
If you are a fan of detective stories go for this book. This book really contains all 4 novels and 56 short stories written by Sir Arthur Conan Doyle. I will comment about the print quality of these books only The pages are of too bad quality Also the size of the books and fonts are really small Surprisingly the books are heavier than expected Don't buy this set Instead go for the two volumes from the publisher 'Amazing Reads' Those two are nice volumes but a bit costly But you won't regret buying them Happy reading!! The book is a classic and we all know about the engrossing storyline, per se.
This review is about the quality of the book. I've seen many reviewers making a fuss about the quality of the pages which shows their ignorance. In the description it has been clearly mentioned that the book is a "Mass Market Paperback" Edition.
- Most Likely to Survive!
- Stepping on Mussels (Young Adult fiction Book 3).

The quality has to be a bit inferior than the actual "paperback". There's just a minor quality difference. The book which I received was in pristine condition and even beautiful than I had imagined.
The size of the books is just adorable. And about the pages, believe me, they are awesome. I'm so glad to add this Boxset to my collection. Also, I got an imported edition which was an icing on the cake. Just go for it without a second thought and you wont regret it. And also ignore the other negative reviews. The font-size of the letters is too small requiring a magnifying glass, the paper-quality is abysmal, the information regarding the number of pages in these two books as mentioned in the Amazon website is wrong, and the binding is not strong and durable.
However, if one can afford then it is better to buy a hardcover edition from a reputed publication. Good compact double-book edition Bantam Press edition contains all the novels and short stories. I've been reading Sherlock Holmes stories since my boyhood, but all of them were translated version in Bangla. For the first time I'm trying them in original and they seem cool. Though this is not a collector's edition, but handy. Page quality etc are not much mentionable, but this is the best edition of Holmes if you want an inexpensive one.
One person found this helpful. These books details us about how two great personalities Dr Watson and Sherlock Holmes come in touch with each other how they solve the cases, it details us the style of thinking, action and implementation of homes. A perfect collection for a book lover. Generally, nice quality of paper and the smell of the book is also very nice. Reading it I felt like I had entered into the world of Sherlock Holmes. Very nice experience. I could roam around the streets of London, just by sitting in the room. Perfectly Mysterious.
Perfect for people like me. And Sherlock Holmes is also very Sarcastic at times. There are customer reviews and customer ratings. See all customer reviews.

Please try again later. Format: Paperback Verified Purchase. Of the first six stories they first appeared in magazine in well-connected order , I love The Man with the Twisted Lip the best. ACD's terribly British humour is at his best. A British gentleman is found by his wife at an opium den. Though there is no crime actually committed, the process of discovering the true act is wonderful. There are only two actual murders of the initial six, nonetheless they are very pleasant to read along and see how Holmes exercises his power of observation.
The introduction by the famed Mr Green is meticulously detailed. I particularly like the quoted passage of ACD saying in what sense the story teller was a revolutionist in the art of narrative. Also there is a good quote from E.

Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase. Well, I must admit that I acquired this book with the intention of learning of some of the locations in London that Sherlock Holmes attended. However, there were not many mentioned in the book and most that were were imaginary. However, the archaic language and simplicity of writing, to the modern reader, was interesting. Overall, I enjoyed reading this classic and would recommend it for those who seek a feel for 19th century society.
Verified Purchase. The compelling and fascinating tales from the pen of Sir Arthur Conan Doyle are classic stories which still hold their appeal today, and Jacobi skilfully manoeuvres his way through all the main characters and does not require any subtle orchestration or sound effects to capture the imagination and create excitement. It is a high quality BBC Audio production.
The attractions of the CD, besides the superb story-telling, is it's versatility in terms of listening locations whether in the car, on an MP3 player, or in your favourite armchair. It will hold your attention from the first minute to the last and is highly recommended. Sherlock Holmes is one of the great characters of literature - who can resist the aloof arrogance and limitless self-satisfaction which stems from that intellectual superiority with which he squishes all the dodgy baronets and rum foreign coves that turn up in the mysteries presented to him by the clients who never fail, when recounting their tangled tales, to speak in perfect paragraphs full of precisely recollected speech in a style exactly like a Conan Doyle story?
