The Adventures of Sherlock Holmes – Arthur Conan Doyle

Sherlock Holmes – scourge of criminals everywhere, whether they be lurking in London’s foggy backstreets or plotting behind the walls of an idyllic country mansion – and his faithful colleague Dr Watson, solve twelve breathtaking and perplexing mysteries.

Perhaps the most famous detective in literary history.. Holmes and Watson at Baker Street need no introduction. There’s been that many adaptations!

This particular collection of 12 short stories are however fantastically written and remains a highly recommended classic. It’s hard not to enjoy the problem solving prowess of Mr Holmes and the descriptions of Victorian London, laid out in nice succinct stories.

Fun fact: Conan Doyle wrote 62 Holmes cases / stories between 1887 and 1927.

Note, the formula is similar in each so I recommend picking it up for one or two at a time rather than reading through the entire collection as one would read a novel.

Also, if you have a Kindle you can find a decent version of this book for almost free.

“Never trust to general impressions, my boy, but concentrate yourself upon details.”
