Sherlock Holmes book. On to the last collection of short stories called The Case-Book of Sherlock Holmes and I will then be done with the whole Sherlock Holmes canon. Which canon I am planning to read next? I am contemplating between reading the whole works of Samuel Beckett (I have all of them) or maybe read the rest of the 11 books included in Anthony Powell’s A Dance to the Music of Time. I am still collecting, little-by-little, the whole works of William Shakespeare so, even if I want to read him next, I still cannot do that.

Sir Derek Jacobi is a Tony-winning actor. He is also well-known as an audiobook narrator. Sherlock Holmes appeared in a total of 60 stories, written by Arthur Conan Doyle and published between 1887 and 1927. The four novels and five volumes of short stories now often appear as The Complete Sherlock Holmes.

by Sir Arthur Conan Doyle(Author), Derek Jacobi(Reader). In 1893 Conan Doyle published 'The Final Problem' in which he killed off his famous detective so that he could turn his attention more towards historical fiction. However Holmes was so popular that Conan Doyle eventually relented and published The Hound of the Baskervilles in 1901. The events of the The Hound of the Baskervilles are set before those of 'The Final Problem' but in 1903 new Sherlock Holmes stories began to appear that revealed that the detective had not died after all. He was finally retired in 1927.

In The Case-book of Sherlock Holmes you can read the final twelve stories that Arthur Conan Doyle wrote about his brilliant detective. It is perhaps the most unusual and certainly the darkest collection that he penned. Treachery, mutilation, and the terrible consequences of infidelity are just some of the themes explored in this collection, along with atmospheric touches of the gothic involving a blood0sucking vampire, crypts at midnight and strange bones in a furnace. The challenging and often bizarre tales reflect the mood of the 1920's when they were written.

The great detective's melancholy mood is lifted by the arrival of attractive Mary Morstan at 221B Baker Street. Mary's father vanished 10 years ago. Four years later she bagan to receive, annually, a large, lustrous pearl. Now she has had an intriguing invitation to meet her unknown benefactor and urges Holmes and Watson to accompany her. The duo are confronted with a case that includes a wronged woman, a wooden-legged ruffian, hidden treasure, and a love affair.

Written by Arthur Conan Doyle, narrated by Derek Jacobi. P)2014 Audible, Inc. More from the same. Sherlock Holmes: The Definitive Collection. The Complete Stories of Sherlock Holmes. The Complete Sherlock Holmes.

In The Problem of Thor Bridge, Holmes finds an interesting use for Watson’s revolver, and a noted professor suddenly begins acting very strangely in The Creeping Man.In The Lion’s Mane, Holmes has retired to tend bees. Or has he? And why has Mrs. Merrilow never shown her face in The Veiled Lodger? In Shoscombe Old Place, the connection between a dog and its bone has never been more important while, in The Retired Colourman, Holmes tackles one of his most controversial cases.

The stories are of course top notch, a legible typeface was used, the book is bound nicely with apparently high quality paper, good cover art, and some good pen and ink drawings that relate to the stories. The bad. . . There is no table of contents, and the stories start on the same page the previous story ended on, even if there is only enough room for the title. Without story names on the top of each page within the story, this makes finding any particular story difficult unless you just read them straight through and use a book mark. This was disappointing and irritating, since the book is priced comparable to its competitors (I made my own TOC as a bookmark, so I'm keeping the book). ????

I love the quality of the book, but was hoping for illustrations. The description of the book series led me to believe they were in there.

I do love these pocket-sized clothbound books. I have a collection of books with fine bindings, but they can be cumbersome to read or too fancy to be portable.

Good alternative to Kindle. Wish they were bound in the USA rather than China.

A huge deviation from the Victorian/Edwardian era Holmes story's. Doyle is able to keep up with the times here. S.H. is sarcastic, witty, and a PI of the 20th Century. These were written in the era of Black Mask Mystery Magazine, Dashiell Hammett and the new Hardboiled Private Eye of fiction. This is more like the Holmes of the popular BBC series running now. The purist here seem to like the old style Holmes much more (judging by the reviews). I think this collection to be a refreshing break, and a more multi-dimensional Detective.

As others have noted, the stories here aren't up to par with Conan Doyle's first Sherlock Holmes mysteries. If you're a huge Holmes fan, you might find them interesting. Those who haven't yet been introduced to Holmes and Watson should opt for the earlier works.

This is the final set of Sherlock Holmes short stories by Sir Arthur Conan Doyle. Like the other stories Sherlock seems to be one step ahead of everyone else in finding the solution to the mystery. However, in a unique way of telling some of these stories the narrator is Sherlock Holmes himself and not John Watson as is usually the case.

Long a fan of Doyle's from the time a teacher pit one the Holmes tomes in my hand. One of the masters of first person.

As my previous reviews of Sir Arthur Conan Doyle's books on Sherlock Holmes, this too was an excellent read. Just when I thought that I had read all of Doyle's writings on him, I happily discovered more. Again, if you are a fan, one never tires of reading about Sherlock Holmes' keen skill at attention to details in solving crimes. This book was no exception! Each story was well developed. I enjoy the fact that I can read one of his stories in one or two sittings. I hope I find more stories. Well done, Doyle!
This is the final collection of Sherlock Holmes short stories. An excellent collection with a few even told by Mr. Holmes himself. The strength of these stories is just as good as the first. I will definitely be revisiting them soon.
