    I’ve been listening to Sherlock Holmes stories in the car and think I’m going to go through and listen to all of them now. I’ve started with The Adventures and have enjoyed it immensely. There must have been any number of psychological studies performed on Mr Holmes. There is, of cour...

    Fun. The crimes in this book are more along the lines of puzzles to work out rather than realistic depictions of crime in late Victorian- early Edwardian England. Contrived, but enjoyable.My favourite moment, I am not positive it is in this collection is when Holmes and Watson are on a train steamin...

    After “reading” lengthy audiobooks like Vanity Fair I just wanted to read/listen-to something short. Then I saw the movie The Imitation Game (highly recommended) and I thought “Of course! Sherlock!”I suspect reviewing an anthology by listing all the stories and commenting on eac...

    To have a slight measure of the pleasant chills that race up and down your spine when you delve into a meaty Holmes mystery, do read the introduction passage by Mark Gatiss (co-creator of BBC Entertainment’s Sherlock). Amidst a host of admirable emotions, Gatiss’ one nostalgic paragraph ca...

    Nothing compares to the original. If you really want to know Holmes and Watson, this is what you read. The characterization and pacing is, for me, delightful. The insights into a London of trains and mail more than once a day, the manners of the time, the dialogue . . . this is a feast.Very honestly...

    As a rule, the more bizarre a thing is, the less mysterious it proves to be. It is your commonplace, featureless crimes which are really puzzling, just as a commonplace face is the most difficult to identify. Who doesn't know Sherlock Holmes these days? Even if not everyone might be familiar with...

    It’s been fun zipping through one of these stories each night for the past twelve nights. I’ve even felt rather clever after guessing correctly on a few of the outcomes—even without counting “The Speckled Band”, a story I remember very well from grammar school. I’m not ...
