Review by benuathanasia
"The Yellow Face" Thus far, this is my favorite of the Sherlock Holmes short stories. It's wonderful to see Sherlock be wrong, for a change. It humanizes him. Yet, even being wrong, he delighted in the resolution in the case, rather than being resentful - a sign of humility. The ending was wonderful. I truly enjoyed it."The Stockbroker's Clerk" Meh. It just feels like a re-imaging of the Red-Headed League, to me."The Gloria Scott"Not as captivating as some of his other stories, but it was still an interesting peak into the mind of Sherlock Holmes."The Musgrave Ritual"Yay! I love it when I can solve the puzzle before the final reveal. At the same time, given how horrible I am at puzzles and mysteries, it makes me feel that this must have been lazily written if I could figure it out so readily."The Final Solution"Ummm...What the hell is this crap? There's no real build of story, no interesting events, and then it just <i>ends</i>. It's far too obviously how Doyle felt about Sherlock by this story.

I haven't read these since I was a teen. <br/><br/>Some of the stories still hold up very well.
