‘Several Sherlock Holmes Mysteries’ Book Review

Mount Readmore Book Review, 2018 65/200


The Adventures of Sherlock Holmes by Sir Arthur Conan Doyle

Audiobook Edition

Finished on 5/5/2018



Since Doyle created the immortal Sherlock Holmes and his assistant Dr. Watson, no other mystery writer has come close to eclipsing him as the standard bearer in crime fiction. A brilliant London-based “consulting detective,” Holmes is famous for his intellectual prowess and renowned for his skillful use of astute observation, deductive reasoning, and inference to solve difficult cases.

Ten stories:

An Anthology of Mystery Stories

Spoiler-ific review

This is an anthology of some of Sherlock Holmes’ best mysteries. They are universally excellent.

I read A Case of Identity, The Boscombe Valley Mystery, The Five Orange Pips, The Man with a Twisted Lip and the Adventure of the Speckled Band. All were good.

Highly recommended.

Stay Sunny!
