    1 thought on “The Complete Sherlock Holmes, Volume I”

    1. The sum of all of my mini reviews for this first volume is 3.8/5. Aka, I just rounded it up because that's basically four stars. The whole reason I read this volume is because I've never read the full stories. I've read this whole volume before, but not the second. And I wanted to remind myself of these stories before the second volume. That will follow this volume, actually. There are some that I like and some that I don't like. I always say to give these a go since they are good stories, some [...]

    2. I had forgotten so many little things about Holmes and Watson and the original stories of ACD.It seems like a phenominal statement to make doesn't it? Holmes and Watson have been fixtures in my life, since I can't remember when. I have been watching movies and TV shows about them since my parents got our 1st TV when I was six years old. The can still remember the horror I felt watching one of the The Hound of the Baskervilles movies (I do not remember which version).This year, there is a new TV [...]

    3. Whatever you do, read Hound of the Baskervilles. Holy cow, that's now one of my favorite books. The short stories are fun, but some are better than others.It feels like Holmes and Watson are really fleshed out as dynamic characters in Baskervilles. Is it the longer length? Is it because it was written so much later than the short stories?

    4. Since 8th grade I have been head over heals for Holmes. I guess I just like moody intellectuals. It is so intertaining to watch him demonstrate his superior intellect again and again. I am really glad I picked these up a B&N. It's great to have all of Sherlock Holmes in two volumes.

    5. The Complete Sherlock Holmes: Volume I by Sir Arthur Conan Doyle is great fun to read. Other than the three short novels, A Study in Scarlet, The Sign of the Four, and The Hound of the Baskervilles, this first volume is comprised of a collection of Holmes stories (also published under the titles of Adventures of Sherlock Holmes and Memoirs of Sherlock Holmes). I read this large volume over the course of three months or so, reading stories between the run of bad books I’ve unfortunately had thi [...]

    6. Since I’ve been reading this off and on since February (yeah, that’s right, ten months!), I’ve forgotten a lot of particular criticisms and compliments for individual mysteries. So, although I can’t be exactly in-depth with this, I can account for the general, over-all feel of the Sherlock Holmes stories. When I first started reading, I found it difficult to picture Holmes and Watson as younger men. They’re in their mid-30s, probably, but for some reason the tone of the book makes them [...]

    7. This is the first of a two volume set containing all Sir Arthur Conan Doyle’s published works featuring Sherlock Holmes. Collected here in order of original publication, this first volume includes the first two novels (A Study in Scarlet and The Sign of Four), followed by the first two collections of short stories (Adventures of Sherlock Holmes and Memoirs of Sherlock Holmes) and ends with the third novel, The Hound of the Baskervilles. Overall, it a wonderful collection featuring some of the [...]

    8. It's amazing how much English literature became less dense between Austen, Dickens and Thackeray to Doyle. I admit I was avoiding reading this because I thought it would take the same level of time and commitment as a Dickens novel, but I was (pleasantly) surprised by how much easier it was to read. I really enjoyed reading this compilation of four of Doyle's Holmes novels. It's easy to see why so many people love Sherlock Holmes and the books are so widely read. However, I have to admit that "A [...]

    9. I loved this book! However, I'm a slow reader and it took me about a year and a half to finish. But if you're like me and love mystery, then I would highly recommend this book.

    10. I've only read A Study in Scarlet from this collection, which was my intention. I'd lean toward 4 stars but I can't say how the rest of the book turns out. I definitely want to read the rest of the book--which totally suprises me--but not right at the moment. I've always been anti-Sherlock Holmes. Turns out he's not so bad after all.

    11. A truly awesome collection of short stories and novels. There's no doubt in my mind that Sherlock Holmes is a master at his craft. Thoroughly entertaining; can't wait to dive into Volume II!

    12. I loved the novels (The Hound of the Baskervilles was a reread for me), but the stories were very much hit-or-miss.

    13. It's hard reviewing classics of literature, especially as a modern reader such as myself who was a not a literary student. So I review this with some trepidation.I'm a fan of the detective novel, so I wanted to go back to some of the original source material for the genre. I decided to start with Conan Doyle's Holmes as opposed to Poe's Dupin because I was more familiar with the character.The collection starts with A Study in Scarlet and The Sign of the Four. I have to say I was disappointed wit [...]

    14. This month, I have read ten of the short stories for 12th grade British Literature. I am a little disappointed that this was my first foray into the adventures of Holmes and Watson. But, to be trite, better late than never.What is there to say that hasn't already been said? Sir Arthur Conan Doyle wrote incredibly compelling tales and created one of the most magnificent characters in the history of literature. Despite more than a century in popular culture with countless interpretations in books, [...]

    15. The world’s most revered and famous fictional detective first appeared from the pen of Sir Arthur Conan Doyle almost a 130 years ago, but the author did not finish with his greatest creation until almost 40 years later even after unsuccessfully killing him off. In this first volume of all the collected works that feature Sherlock Holmes and his friend Dr. John Watson, the reader first meets the great detective and his friend through two short novellas, 23 short stories, and the best-known and [...]

    16. Having undertaken the journey of reading ALL the Sherlock Holmes stories due to my recent infatuation with the terrific BBC television series Sherlock, I am pleased to say I am pleased! Though Sir A. C. D. himself once insisted that he would be disappointed if he were only remembered for creating the character of Holmes, I have to object to such a statement. You should not be disappointed, sir! These stories are brilliant. They aren't the most quickly-paced things, and they aren't exactly drippi [...]

    17. 3.5 StarsI cannot believe I am finished! I started, stopped, sputtered-to-life, halted, then started again. It took me 4 months to plow through this book; which is rare, since size does NOT matter. I have tackled larger books in less time. I did not find this book very interesting in the beginning, but once I set my mind to it this last month, it went quickly (I mostly read it on the weekends this past October).The stories were relatively short, and actually quite humorous (Robert Downey Jr. pla [...]

    18. An overall fun read. Ever since the release of the Sherlock Holmes movies, I have envisioned Robert Downey Jr and Jude Law when I read these stories! It was such great casting and it made the book even more enjoyable. As for the stories themselves, they have the potential to be a bit repetitive. But if you read one story at a time as they were originally intended to be read, then it shouldn't be too big of a deal. Anyways, like I said, a fun and entertaining read, can't wait to start on the seco [...]

    19. When I watched RDJ's Sherlock Holmes movie a few years ago, I was instantly hooked - I was immediately a fan of the characters and the story; this obsession escalated when I discovered BBC Sherlock, as well as Elementary. I knew I had to read the books and short stories that started it all, and I'm so glad I finally had the time to. Reading the original stories has really proved to me that these characters are immortal, and there's a reason why these stories are classics. I absolutely love these [...]

    20. The edition I read was from Doubleday and had a preface by Christopher Morley. This was the best detective series ever. It's only shortcoming is that when you finish, you wish you could read them all for the first time. The stories also give some insight to the culture of the time.I have also read the apocryphal (not really) works. The best is The Seven Percent Solution by Nicholas Meyer followed by The Giant Rat of Sumatra and Meyer's West End Horror.

    21. Sherlock Holmes is my FAVORITE literary character of all time. And I've only read half the stories.I never dreamed I would fall in love with the mastery of one fictional man's capabilities of mind. I now use Holmes' methods of deducing, on an everyday basis. (It's just so hard not to, now that I've learned a few of his tricks.) And yet there's still so much MORE to take in from this master of deduction!Volume I = complete.Volume II = here I come!

    22. I won a copy of this in a sixth grade essay contest. My first inkling that maybe I had some talent at writing. Will always love the brilliance of Holmes. Which is why I named my YA protagonist after him.

    23. Enjoyed the world of Sherlock Holmes. The Hound of the Baskervilles was my favorite story. Indubitably! Need a break before I read Volume 2.

    24. Awesome! I'm glad I haven't watched any of the many Sherlock movies or television shows because I can already see how Doyle's Sherlock is different. I can't recommend this enough. :)

    25. It doesn't matter how many times I've reread these stories. With each revisitation, I always find something new to admire and appreciate.

    26. A Study in Scarlet - the story which brings Sherlock Holmes and Dr. John Watson together and introduces them to the world. Shortly after our two heroes become flat mates a murder takes place in London. Scotland Yard is beyond its grasp and consults Holmes in the investigation. First one, then two dead Americans are discovered but Holmes is not deterred. Suddenly and unexpectedly, the arrest is made. The story then goes back in time and provides us motive for the killer. His love of a girl and hi [...]
