The Adventures of Sherlock Holmes
Author: Sir Arthur Conan Doyle
He's rude, arrogant, cold, unfriendly, and easily bored. Nobody minds because he is a genius at solving mysteries. But to interest Holmes at all, the case must be impossible: like the mysteries of the blackmail scheme that might destroy a nation; the woman killed in a locked room - while screaming about a "band"; the man who writes...  more »

This is not a professionally published book. I guess the Conan Doyle stories are in the public domain and can be printed without permission from his estate, because someone saw fit to re-print 'The Adventures' through CreateSpace. The text in this book isn't even justified, giving it an unprofessional look. Furthermore, the large dimensional size of the book makes the pages very full of text and at least to me uncomfortable to read. In short, not a very professional reprint.

This is the kind of thing I read from about the age of twelve on. My own children are starting to discover it, as well, and this pleases me to no end. Mostly good writing, some stretched deductions, and a growing sense that as generations pass by they will find this less and less accessible. This grieves me, and I wonder if readers of The Fairie Queen ever felt this way. These stories nevertheless expand the curious mind, sharpen logic, and endear the reader to characters that have felt so real that many do not realize they were fiction. Good show, Watson!
