    You gotta love Sherlock Holmes! This was a great Audiobook (very good sound) of 4 classic mysteries. (about an hour each). The Adventure of the Speckled Band The Adventure of the Stock-Broker's Clerk The Adventure of the Copper Beeches The Adventure of the Red-Headed League Not easy to figure out. But so much fun.

    Have read all of Doyle's Sherlock Holmes and probably others as well, just never bothered to put them in to amazon or goodreads, so dates wrong. Some KU some paperback some hardback some collections.

    So, I read this book at least two days and the way that Sherlock think about his problems and the way that his mind work and make a logic sequence watching the minimums details are impressing me in a way that all that I can say is: I LOVE THAT MAN. All the cases are well-writing by Conan and I was exciting about how will be the end of each history. It's wonderful. No words. Just read!

    The complete adventures of sherlock holmes is truly a master piece of a work. With each unexpected but not unthinkable twists the story keeps you engaged through out. The solution of most of cases finally makes us feel that it was really not hard a case at all. But then who could pay much attention as the great Sherlock Holmes. Such ingenious writing that compels you to finish a story without setting the book aside. Too good a writing that suits anyone of any age.

    you can't go wrong with sherlock holmes. and to have his complete adventures is quite astonishing. my favourite is still the one with irene adler. i wish she had a little more to do in the movies as it could have gone in any direction. never mind i guess, can't mess with a classic :)

    My first attempt at Sherlock Holmes. Tiresome and predictable. I'll read another, but won't expect much.

    I really enjoyed this book. I like the way Doyle writes--very crisp, very precise. Now, I'm going to pick up some of the longer books at the library.

What fun! I had read most of the Holmes short stories from my beat-up paperback years ago. But I forgot many of the details, so there were some surprises along the way. Also, I was reminded that I do enjoy Conan Doyle’s writing style, and his attention to character as well as to details of each mystery. Hearing these stores dramatized in this way was very entertaining, and the perfect companion to my neighborhood walks. I’m happy to know my library offers several more volumes in this series.

    I listened to the audio version of this book via the Libby app. I feel like I should know Sherlock Holmes from all of the movies, TV shows, and Holmes-style books I have read over the years. Because of this, I was afraid of being disappointed with the real thing. I was not! I loved listening to the stories, the narrator was fabulous, and I can't wait to find more!

    I really loved the first few stories, but after a certain point, they all seemed to repeat themselves. I have no complaints about each mystery individually, but there eventually came a lack of variety. I think this book would be best enjoyed if you divided it into smaller parts, rather than reading the entire volume with no breaks in between.

    My first reading of Sherlock Holmes since my father read the Hound of the Baskervilles when I was a child, I was quite impressed with the quick pace and wit of the short stories found in this collection. The stories are smart, well-written, and certainly worth a read.

    Four classic mysteries from Sherlock Holmes including the Speckled Band, The Adventure of the Copper Beeches, The Stock-Broker's Clerk, and the Red-Headed League. David Timson is okay but no Jeremy Brett or Basil Rathboone.

    This book is twelve more short stories with the wonderful Sherlock Homes and Dr Watson. These were more mysteries which they manage to solve in their own inimitable way.

    I found every story to be intriguing and some of the decisions made by the story characters questionable but I'm still amazed by Sherlock's investigations

    It's been awhile since I've read any Sherlock Holmes, and I had forgotten how much I love it. I've been in a very detective-ish mood lately. All I've been watching are crime procedurals and reading Agatha Christie. Sherlock fit right in. I plowed right through these short stories. They were all so fabulous! Sherlock is also a lot nicer in these books than I remembered, and definitely friendlier than in the TV adaptations. I loved every story! The first two were my favorites. The Speckled Band A w It's been awhile since I've read any Sherlock Holmes, and I had forgotten how much I love it. I've been in a very detective-ish mood lately.

Sherlock is also a lot nicer in these books than I remembered, and definitely friendlier than in the TV adaptations. I loved every story! The first two were my favorites. The Speckled Band A woman comes to Sherlock because her twin sister was murdered and she fears she's next. She lives with her eccentric step-father and suspects he might have something to do with the death. Before her sister died she screamed out "the speckled band" but nobody knew what that meant. The Adventure of the Copper Beeches A woman comes to Sherlock and tells him about a mysterious new governess job she's considering. The employers insist that she cut her hair, wear certain clothes, and sit a certain way. Sherlock says he wouldn't recommend his own sister take such a position, but if she takes it, she should write to him if she has any concerns. He hears from a couple weeks later and goes to investigate the odd happenings. The Stock-Broker's Clerk A young man gets a strange job offer and wants to know what Sherlock thinks. They arrive at the offices just in time to see the employer behaving very strangely and disappear into a closet. The Red-Headed League My least favorite in the bunch, but still fun. Redheads should enjoy this one about a man who gets a job because he has red hair. All he has to do is copy the encyclopedia. What could be easier?

    I've always been a bit of a fan of mystery stories and in my childhood I read a lot of Cam Jansan and Encyclopedia Brown books. Yeah, they're picture books, but I still enjoy them. What I enjoy most about mystery and detective stories is that it connects with the reader in a very intellectual level - the working of the mind to crack the case along with the characters in the story. Serlock Holmes, perhaps the greatest fictional detective of all time is a character that I will never forget.

What I enjoy most about mystery and detective stories is that it connects with the reader in a very intellectual level - the working of the mind to crack the case along with the characters in the story. Serlock Holmes, perhaps the greatest fictional detective of all time is a character that I will never forget. The fact that he knows so much about the art of crime and close to nothing about astronomy is surprising. This is because he believes that this knowledge is not in any ways related to his occupation and he'd rather just not know about it. One of the short stories that I enjoyed most in this novel was 'The adventure of the Copper Beeches'. It was very cleverly written and the characters are well developed. My favorite part of the novel was when Serlock Holmes reasoned about the fact that a child's behavior is reflective of his/her parents. Therefore, when a child is seen killing even just mere insects with cruelty his parents must be cruel as well. Even if on the surface they may be all similey - that is not their 'true self'. I feel that this is the way people are. I mean who doesn't go out to the streets and once in a while pretend to be someone that they're not?

    Finished this book a while ago, am now actually reading the second book, but I really loved this one. Going to keep this short, I hate spoilers too. I think the first part in the book was amazing, I loved the story telling, the way Watson has actually written this down already, I really adored the style. I finished the first part in one time. Though had to take a break or two with the second part, for I wasn't sure why I got all this boring, useless information.

    The description on the Good Reads entry is wrong -actually contains six stories The Adventure of the Empty House The Adventure of the Devil's Foot The Adventure of the Abbey Grange The Adventure of the Cardboard Box The Man with the Twisted Lip The Adventure of the Bruce Partington Plans Loved it great descriptive writing. Really good fun and no surprise that these timeless tales of crime, infidelity, family feuds, drug taking and espionage are still so popular today.

    I love the Sherlock Holmes stories and have ever since I can remember. (I remember making up stories to go with my Mom's Holmes' collection before I could read). I started to listen to them on audio when I got my walkman and have loved most of the adaptations and performances of the stories that I've read. This version was good, but I confess a fondness for "Sir John Gielgud in the role of Sherlock Holmes."

    Finally, after all these years, I've read about the ultimate British detective and his pipe, cape and friend Watson. The first 12 stories are entertaining, and I enjoyed our superhero, the disguise-loving genuis, who can look at people and see right into their minds, who uses the power of good for mankind, and whom everyone in Victorian London, from the lowliest governess to the highest nobleman, comes to when they need help. Some very clever endings of the stories, too.

    I have gone reverse with Sherlock Holmes, watching the movie first, followed by the series and now the book. Still, it's a really exciting book with simple and wonderful storytelling. The character of Sherlock has been described so delightfully. This book which is over a 1000 pages has around 25 short stories. Although it's difficult to pick a favorite story they have indeed made an amazing choice for the end which makes you curious and excited even after reading 1000 pages..

    To prepare myself for watching the Sherlock Holmes movie I wanted to read something with Holmes and Watson in it. So I listened to this audio version of a handful of short stories. While I was a little disappointed with the short stories (I guessed the conclusion of the mysteries) I did enjoy the details of Holmes. He made for an intriguing character. I'll have to pick up a novel-length story next!

    This was a library "Blind Date" book-all wrapped up and there was the fun of finding out what it was. I've seen television shows about Sherlock and Holmes but I realized I hadn't read any of the books. This was really fun to read and help solve the many mysteries. That must be one reason the author was knighted by the King. The collection of stories were wonderful. It was a great surprise!

    I’ve been meaning to read Holmes for years. It’s interesting to finally read/listen to these after seeing so many adaptations but they are genuinely engaging. Holmes comes off with less of a personality here and Watson’s boner for Holmes is even more intense, but overall engaging mysteries that have remained popular for a reason.

    The game's afoot with this series of 12 original Sherlock Holmes tales. The early tales vary in quality, and aren't nearly as complex or unexpected as the longer novels. But they're lively and fun, with blustery London weather and a host of familiar characters who populate Victorian streets and classes. A pleasant diversion for a long airplane ride.

    I found this book to be thoroghly entertaining and remarkably well written. Once I picked up this book I was not capable of setting it down until I had finished it. Sherlock Holmes has now become one of my greatest fictional heroes, and I believe that this will be true for anyone else who has read this.

    This was my first time reading Sherlock Holmes on my Kindle. It's a classic book that a lot of people like but the dialect was hard for me to understand so I guess that's why I didn't like it and I felt like I had a hard time understanding what was going on but I finished it regardless of how the book was written because I wanted to see how it would end.
