This is the complete adventures of Sherlock Holmes, a “consultant” detective, with an amazing power of deduction, and his roommate at 221B, Baker Street, Dr. John Watsons they travel across England to solve cases that has left the Police clueless. Nowadays, Sherlock Holmes is a name known to everyone. I liked this book for Sherlock’s eccentric behavior, and Watson’s cluelessness about what Sherlock thinks. Conan Doyle is a very good author, who puts himself well into the skin of Watson to tell the amazing stories of his two protagonists and how they fight crime and Sherlock’s archenemy, Moriarty.
The all-time-favorite, highly intelligent, socially incapable, and overly smart detective is a brilliant character who can solve any mysterious event / case. These stories not only have lots of information on variouse subjects to offer (e.g. science, chemistry, physics) but are also entertaining. The main characters are: Holmes' friend and colleague Dr. Watson, their landlady Mrs. Hudson, the always lost and confused Inspector Lestrade, and the arch enemy Professor Moriarty.
Excellent stories. If you enjoy mystery, then Doyle's Holmes is a must. Be transported back to London in the days of horse and buggy. Superior style and prose, plus masterful characterization, and plots that will have you up reading past your bedtime!
Engrossing. I like the fact that these are short and they're engrossing.
