The Complete Sherlock Holmes
All 4 Novels and 56 Short Stories
This book can be downloaded and read in Apple Books on your Mac or iOS device.
This volume, authorized by Sir Arthur Conan Doyle's estate, contains all 4 full-length novels and all 56 short stories featuring Sherlock Holmes. At over a thousand pages, the weighty tome is a perfect gift for budding amateur sleuths, and it is an ideal companion for a long stay on a desert island (or a leisurely trip through the English countryside). As the reader wades past the tense introductions of A Study in Scarlet and moves towards such classic tales as The Hound of the Baskervilles, "The Adventure of the Speckled Band," and "The Final Problem," she is sure to draw her own conclusions about Holmes's veiled past and his quirky relationship with his "Boswell," Watson. Doyle never revealed much about Holmes's early life, but the joy of reading the complete Holmes is assembling the trivia of each story into something like a portrait of the detective and his creator. By the end of the long journey through London and across Europe (with a long stopover at Reichenbach Falls), one is apt to have found a friend for life.
The lack of paragraphs makes this a chore to read.
Poor formatting. Thrown together.
The formatting of this book is terrible. Each story is a single paragraph. Very hard to read this way.
I believe all the Sherlock stories are here, but they are not organized in any way. It would be better if they were organized in the order they first appeared (for example).
this book is great the language is old fashioned and a little hard to understand but the writing and characters are great. sad to have it end
