    1. Nothing compares to the original. If you really want to know Holmes and Watson, this is what you read. The characterization and pacing is, for me, delightful. The insights into a London of trains and mail more than once a day, the manners of the time, the dialogue . . . this is a feast.Very honestly speaking, none of the movie or television adaptations have ever given me the sensation of 'being there' at Baker Street, with Holmes and Watson, that I get from the original stories.Read them. You ow [...]


    2. I’ve been listening to Sherlock Holmes stories in the car and think I’m going to go through and listen to all of them now. I’ve started with The Adventures and have enjoyed it immensely. There must have been any number of psychological studies performed on Mr Holmes. There is, of course, that wonderful line by Borges in his lectures on Verse in which he says that he believes in the Character of Sherlock Holmes without actually believing in any of the stories in which that character appears [...]


    3. As a rule, the more bizarre a thing is, the less mysterious it proves to be. It is your commonplace, featureless crimes which are really puzzling, just as a commonplace face is the most difficult to identify.Who doesn't know Sherlock Holmes these days? Even if not everyone might be familiar with the original version invented by Arthur Conan Doyle, Mr. Holmes has become such a legend in his own right, a development fed and supported by numerous stage, screen and radio adaptions, that it is nearly [...]


    4. To have a slight measure of the pleasant chills that race up and down your spine when you delve into a meaty Holmes mystery, do read the introduction passage by Mark Gatiss (co-creator of BBC Entertainment’s Sherlock). Amidst a host of admirable emotions, Gatiss’ one nostalgic paragraph captured my fancy.It goes thusly,“I’d never read any of the original stories until one fateful Saturday when, recovering from German measles, I was given a treat : a trip to WH Smith, and the purchase of [...]


    5. 3.75 stars, rounding up because Sherlock+classics!The Adventures of Sherlock Holmes, published in 1892, and available for free online reading or downloading here on Project Gutenberg (or many other places), is a collection of twelve Sherlock Holmes short stories. Doyle's formula for his Sherlock stories gets a little bit worn and visible after you read several of them back to back. But there are some jewels in this collection, and they all have something to offer the interested reader, even if i [...]


    6. Read for the second timeIn sixty investigations, narrated by Dr. Watson, his eminent memorialist, Sherlock Holmes gave only twenty-five guilty to justice.Nine others had escaped the just punishment that awaited them after the riddle's resolution of the enigma.Eleven investigations had the result only of revealing a supposed crime or a pure fantasy having no relation of gravity with that supposed.At the end of the remaining fifteen investigations, Sherlock Holmes, substituting himself for justice [...]


    7. Sherlock Holmes is one of the great characters of literature - who can resist the aloof arrogance and limitless self-satisfaction which stems from that intellectual superiority with which he squishes all the dodgy baronets and rum foreign coves that turn up in the mysteries presented to him by the clients who never fail, when recounting their tangled tales, to speak in perfect paragraphs full of precisely recollected speech in a style exactly like a Conan Doyle story? I love the love story betwe [...]


    8. It's the end of the world and Watson and Holmes, on the cusp of having their brilliant lives snuffed out by the impending doom decide their simmering sexual tension can go no further.As they remove their clothes, Watson turns around to see Holmes brandishing a tub of Lemon Curd."Holmes!" Watson exclaims, "I know what we're about to do goes against God's nature, but what in the name of all that is Holy are you doing with that breakfast condiment?"To which Holmes replied, "Lemon entry my dear Wats [...]


    9. The Adventures of Sherlock Holmes (Sherlock Holmes, #3), Arthur Conan Doyle تاریخ نخستین خوانش: سوم اکتبر سال 2016 میلادیعنوان: شرلوک هولمز؛ نویسنده: آرتور کانن دویل؛ مترجم: محمد قصاع؛ تهران؛ شهر قلم؛ 1394؛ در 112 ص؛


    10. Classic Sherlock Holmes, Arthur Conan Doyle at his finest.If you've read and enjoyed any books in the Sherlock Holmes series - then read them all, they are all consistently great. Sherlock Holmes must be one of the greatest literary characters ever created and the stories are so very well written.Intriguing, compelling, intelligent, exciting, page-turning fun of the highest order.


    11. After “reading” lengthy audiobooks likeVanity Fair I just wanted to read/listen-to something short. Then I saw the movie The Imitation Game (highly recommended) and I thought “Of course! Sherlock!”I suspect reviewing an anthology by listing all the stories and commenting on each of them is probably inelegant and amateurish, but I never said I was a pro. So the game is afoot! Let the jollification begin: A Scandal in Bohemia - Irene Adler is not Holmes girlfriend OK? stop shipping "Sheren [...]


    12. It’s been fun zipping through one of these stories each night for the past twelve nights. I’ve even felt rather clever after guessing correctly on a few of the outcomes—even without counting “The Speckled Band”, a story I remember very well from grammar school. I’m not sure why I remember it after such a long time, except for it being one of several short stories we read that year that opened up a new world for me, thanks to a favorite English teacher. (Other stories I remember from [...]

    14. Sherlock Holmes What a day :) ***** حزينة جدا على أفول نجم (شيرلوك) في أواخر ايام السير آرثر كونان دويل ماكانش يعرف ان دي البداية :)



    15. Fun. The crimes in this book are more along the lines of puzzles to work out rather than realistic depictions of crime in late Victorian- early Edwardian England. Contrived, but enjoyable.My favourite moment, I am not positive it is in this collection is when Holmes and Watson are on a train steaming through the countryside and Watson makes an observation about the peaceful looking pretty cottages for which Holmes rebukes him 'no one knows what dark crimes are committed behind those doors' - rev [...]



    16. 4/5Los relatos de Sherlock Holmes siempre son una lectura segura a la que recurrir. Y es que da igual que todos sigan el mismo patrón y ya esté muy familiarizada con los métodos deductivos de Sherlock, siempre me reconforta leerlos. Ya hablé en otras reseñas de Arthur Conan Doyle de lo que me gusta el personaje de Sherlock. Es impresionante cómo a través de Watson descubrimos a este genio, que a veces me inspira asombro y otras veces me parece el mejor personaje cómico que haya existido. [...]

    18. So, I volunteer at a library, in what the librarians call the "Popular Library," which consists of the area with the DVDs, music CDs and of course, the audiobooks. The majority of the titles in the audiobook section are romance novels. It struck me as a hilarious idea, and indeed, each of the audiobooks I've stuck in the CD player they have there to listen to for a few minutes has borne that out. Romance novel dialogue is barely okay on the page- can you imagine all that "Oh, FABIO, your gorgeou [...]


    19. This short story collection on the adventures on Sherlock Holmes set the famous fictitious detective at his best and Mr. Doyle himself at his best as well, save except in the Hound of the Baskerville. All twelve short stories in this collection are well written and varied between 3 stars to 5 stars in my opinion on them. A Scandal in Bohemia **** - I really liked it. It was one instance that famous detective was outwitted, and that too by a woman!The Red-headed League *** - This was a clever mys [...]


    20. Here are my reviews of individual stories:Link to review of the first story, A Scandal in BohemiaLink to another one, The Adventure of the Speckled Band


    21. Como siempre, la agudeza y el ingenio de Holmes hacen que cada aventura parezca compleja al principio y que transcurra con muchas rapidez, además de resultar simple y menos dramática al final. Mi admiración no hace más que crecer por el simple hecho de que a fin de cuentas todo se reduzca a la explicación más elemental.



    22. "Tan acostumbrado estaba yo a sus invariables éxitos que ni se me pasaba por la cabeza la posibilidad de que fracasara"Me gustaron algunas más que otras, pero lo que más me llamó la atención a leer cada historia fue el carácter de Sherlock, que al ser misterios cortos y que por ahí no generaban problemas para resolver, su personalidad e inteligencia es lo que más destaca.Escándalo en Bohemia 5/5"Para como un carácter como el suyo, una emoción fuerte resultaba tan perturbadora como la [...]


    23. If you are an enthusiastic reader of crime/noir/mystery novels, at some point you should get back to its roots—by reading The Adventures of Sherlock Holmes. Sir Arthur set many of the patterns which can still be observed in the modern genre novel.Sherlock Holmes is an eccentric expert—but he defines the crime expert, what with his monographs on cigar ash, his studies of foot prints, and his encyclopedic knowledge of the history of crime. Many of the heroes of today’s literature are forensi [...]


    24. I've read quite a few Sherlock Holmes stories before, more than half of these, probably, at one time or another, but this collection of twelve, taken all at one go (really over three days, but you know what I mean), gives a different impression than the stories do when taken individually. The thing that most impressed me, and which I likely noticed because Zach Dundas pointed it out in The Great Detective: The Amazing Rise and Immortal Life of Sherlock Holmes, which I just read, is how nice Sher [...]

    27. Gotta love the old-school dash!Arthur Conan Doyle created such an intriguing vehicle for his mystery stories in the figure of Sherlock Holmes, a man almost inhuman, nearly robotic in his exacting speech and actions, so much so that the reader longs for and grasps on to the minute human aspects (a hint of carnal desire, for example) on the fleeting instances they appear.In story after tightly wound story intelligence and rational thought wins the day. But before it gets all too academic, Conan Do [...]
