    Sherlock Holmes has always appealed to me. I enjoy his penetrating logic and allergy to boredom. Although I loved these stories as a kid, I never fully appreciated the marvel of Arthur Conan Doyle’s storytelling and prose style. The latest Sherlock Holmes movie, with Robert Downey Junior playing the master sleuth, inspired me to re-discover these stories and novels. I especially loved “Hound of the Baskervilles,” a timeless “creepy” tale that combines a supernatural legend with unexplained deaths and a hidden identity. Holmes and Watson leave the comforts of their cozy flat at 221B Baker Street to explore the stark moors. The characters they meet are all fully developed and yet, hide critical evidence from view. The scary chase with a hound across the foggy moor is still a fearful experience, even though I have read the scene many times. It’s hard to believe these stories were written a hundred years ago. Although set in a Victorian age of hansom cabs, mud-spattered boots and afternoon tea, the dialogue and the observations about human nature are still fresh and seem like they were written today.

    At Borders you can buy Vol. 1 & 2 of this collection in paperback for about 6 bucks a piece. They’re fun, fast reads for when I don’t feel like getting into a longer novel. Now that I have a Kindle I wanted the e-book version of them and this collection doesn’t disappoint.

    This version has all the books and I’ve noticed none of the formatting/grammar errors in this collection that some of the other Sherlock Holmes collections seem to have. And the price is great! You can’t beat $0.99!

    Great purchase!

    I can’t link to the table of contents or go to a chapter other than in the order in which I read them. Other than that the book is fine. a good read. But, still, a pain in the neck by having to keep to the order the book was put together.

    This book is jammed packed with all of the Sherlock Holmes mysteries; each and every story ever published, as advertised. And each story is linked as well, so moving around the chapters and short stories is a breeze, unlike in many of the other Kindle versions out there. The layout is clean and neat, and there are even illustrations throughout, which some stories call for, as Holmes refers to maps and figures of dancing men, etc., and it helps to have the illustrations, which highlight and enhance the storytelling.

    Great anthology! And the price is unbeatable!

    This is a review for the Kindle version.

    The table of contents, yes it is really is there, is nicer than the

    over version(s) that I have previously bought.

    So far I have found no formating errors.

    And the use of font sizes looks better than other version(s).

    Both of my 20 something year old sons and myself are enjoying

    reading this together. My wife is about ready to join in too.

    Nice to be reading Sherlock Holmes again.

    And how are you going to beat 99 cents!

    This is what Kindle is all about!

    Fantastic collection for an amazing price. It has been rather difficult for me to put this down. There really isn’t much to be said about this classic other than I wish I had picked it up sooner.

    This really is the COMPLETE Sherlock Holmes, at an amazing price. The only complaint I have is that it’s missing the original illustrations from the Strand Magazine, which are kind of interesting.

    But it’s a great opportunity to meet the Master of Detection (or renew the acquaintance)!

    At first, I was a little hesitant to purchase a complete collection of Sherlock Holmes. I decided the 99 cents were okay to gamble with, so I bought it. What a great find! Not only does this book have an active table of contents to each book, but it also has sub-chapters inside each book. This makes it seem as though you are navigating inside multiple books at once. The layout is crisp and clean, with appropriate spacing. Overall, I would suggest this book to all of my friends as a great way to read from Sir Arthur Conan Doyle’s greatest character.

    These is a fantastic collection of all of the Sherlock Holmes stories. I wonderful collection to read, I couldn’t put it down. It does have some historical inaccuracies but way back then they didn’t have access at their finger tips as we do for research. Overall fantastic.

    This version is complete and ver enjoyable. However there are spelling mistakes and there are no graphics! Very frustrating to read graphics heavy stories such as “The Dancing Men” but there are sufficiently few stories like this to make it tolerable.

    As a younger man I’ve never had the opportunity to actually read the Sherlock Holmes stories before. After picking this up I must say I am THOROUGHLY IMPRESSED. I can not put this “book” down. The only reason that I give this four stars is the fact that on my android kindle ( I can not say if this is a similar issue on other devices) some of the illustrations and diagrams which can be so crucial to the stories, are missing, poor quality, or replaced by some cover of a different novel. Other than that though THIS IS AN UNBEATABLE PRICE for such a collection. These stories are brilliantly written (although some of the “olde english” vernacular can be a little difficult to get through) and I can see why this is a classic which stands the test of time. Whether you are a fan (which I now have become) or never read a Sherlock Holmes narrative I strongly recommend that you purchase this.

    I read Doyle’s Complete works of Sherlock Holmes in the early 60′s as a youngster… a red, cloth covered volume that was more than 2 inches thick. Looking back, these stories helped me learn to observe my surroundings….
