    Delightful and a helpful and fun tool for teaching pre-teen boys about paying attention to detail.

    Unfortunately this book made for passive reading. I usually love detective novels as they're engaging to read and I really enjoy trying to figure out the case as the book goes along and come up with the solution myself. However, the vast majority of Sherlock Holmes' stories do not allow for this, especially because Holmes' epiphanies almost always arise from visual clues - something the reader does not have access to due to the stories being written from Watson's perspecive.

And unlike Agatha Christie's detective novels where much of the mystery is solved by analysis of dialogue and matching up of events, these tales rely heavily on what goes on in Holmes' experiences. Watson isn't around Holmes all of the times and seems to be a rather bland character who does not add much to the story apart from being Holmes' soundboard. The resolutions therefore are often sudden and make the reader's attempt to solve the case by themselves futile.

    Interesting, creative, imaginative, detailed, and fun to read. Definitely keeps the interest and has you turning pages to see what's gonna happen next. Colorful characters, curious mysteries, fun antics and bantering, and simple yet complex answers. Can you figure it out before the end? ;) Enjoyable to read and contains a few shorter stories so it's not too much at once. Great for the youngsters and adults alike. Totally Enjoy!

    Overall the stories were interesting, intriguing, suspenseful and complicated, which I enjoyed. But it was disappointing that most of the stories did not give the reader the clues necessary to solve the case on their own. The Solitary Cyclist: 2 stars. It was okay, but the outcome could have been a little less predictable and a little more interesting. Charles Augustus Milverton: 4 stars. I really liked it.

But it was disappointing that most of the stories did not give the reader the clues necessary to solve the case on their own. The Solitary Cyclist: 2 stars. It was okay, but the outcome could have been a little less predictable and a little more interesting. Charles Augustus Milverton: 4 stars. I really liked it. It was so action-packed and suspenseful and intriguing. I loved how they snuck into his house and had to hide behind the curtains when he came into the room. It totally stressed me out! And Milverton was a tough character. It was cool to see someone who was a match for Holmes. Black Peter: 3 stars. I liked the little plot twists and how developed the story and characters were despite it only being about a 30 page story. The Golden Pince-Nez: 3 stars. I liked that the mystery had enough factors to it that my mind could run wild with theories of who might have committed the crime and why and how. The actual outcome ended up being completely unpredictable which hasn't been uncommon with these short stories but sometimes tended to be a little frustrating for readers like me who want to try and solve the crime ourselves. I did love the ending, though. So dramatic! The Priory School: 4 stars. It was interesting and complicated and allowed the reader to come up with so many theories (one of mine ended up being half-right). There were so many elements and characters which I liked. There was a little suspense because if felt like you couldn't trust anyone. It only lost a star because (view spoiler)[that poor German schoolmaster never got justice after his murder. (hide spoiler)] The Beryl Coronet: 3 stars. It wasn't very suspenseful or anything, but there were enough clues that allowed me to half figure out who the guilty party was, so I did like that. The Engineer's Thumb: 4 stars. It was a riveting and captivating story that kept me on the edge of my seat. Would've been 5 stars if Holmes had caught the criminals. It seemed ridiculous that they didn't find out anything at all. Zero closure. But the engineer's story about how the woman warned him, and how he almost died in the machine, and all of that was so scary and exciting to read about. It would make a good movie. The Red-Headed League: 2 stars. The ending saved it, it made it an interesting story because of it, but actually reading the story itself was pretty boring. Average rating: 3.125 stars

    Arthur Conan Doyle's iconic master of logic and detective calculation comes through time and again in the well-known and beloved mysteries of Sherlock Holmes. With Doyle's unmatched atmospheric evocation of Victorian London, unforgettable leads, and imaginative mysteries, Sherlock Holmes is delightful.

    Extremely delightful to read even though a few of the short stories don’t quite hit the amazing mark. Compared to another anthology I’ve read of Sherlock Holmes, these seemed a bit less clever, but overall it was still fun reading them.

    Another Puffin classic success. I love the size, look, print and price of the books in this series. It makes reading Arthur Conan Doyle that much more enjoyable.

    As always, Sir Arthur Conan Doyle is presenting a series of thrilling stories that rouse the curiosity about what it would be the end of the enigma that he shows at the beginning.

    This book has 8 cases, which Sherlock Holmes and his assistant, Dr. Watson, investigate and solve. This book is page turning and will have you intrigued.

I will also warn you is that instead of solving one case, there are eight cases which are solved. This book was very enjoyable to me, however the whole book was very different than what I thought of it as. (Format, plot, story, etc.). The stories did not fully grab my attention, however it may for you.

    This was a great book but for some reason, boring. I didn't hate it but I couldn't find the 'want' to read. These mysteries seemed very thought through and I really liked the end of every mystery: you found out what actually happened and Sherlock was never really wrong! I do feel it was written in quite old language (using words like seven-and-thirty instead of thirty-seven) but I did understand what most meant. And if I didn't here was always the glossary to help me at the end of the book. Anot This was a great book but for some reason, boring. I didn't hate it but I couldn't find the 'want' to read.

Thanks for the adventure Doyle, John and, of course, Sherlock.

    This is such a nice, easy summer read that you can skim through in a couple of days. It's the first Arthur Conan Doyle novel that I've ever read and I definitely see why it's made such a long-lasting impression in the world! Sherlock Holmes is English literature's first detective who relies on his intuition to solve crimes rather than clues. If you're a fan of crime novels, then this is a must-read.

    I can't give less than four stars to Sherlock. A description at the beginning of this anthology says it is for teenage boys. Why teenage? Why boys? Ah Penguin Classics you are so short-sighted. Good thing Sherlock isn't. Now pick eight stories that are for girls. Go. I can't give less than four stars to Sherlock. A description at the beginning of this anthology says it is for teenage boys.

    Exactly as you’d expect of Sherlock. But a few of the stories didn’t give nearly any of the clues that would let the reader figure out the mystery beforehand ...

    A fun classic to listen to. I appreciated it more realizing that the detective mystery genre was started with this. Sometimes reading classics like this, you don't always recognize that this was the first, and that is partly why it was a classic. A fun classic to listen to.

    Calling all murder mysteries fans!! Sir Arthur Conan Doyle’s murder mysteries are amazing! Like, seriously amazing stories. I would recommend all of his books for girls older than fifteen unless you know your daughters can handle murder. They all are a bit scary, and some of Sherlock’s thought processes are a bit dark. I'm a girl who has to pace myself when reading murder books. If I read too much murder, I tend to get disturbing dreams.

    first time that I read for sherlock holmes. it requires concentration but I have found that most of the cases could be figured out right before the end and the rest you have to wait for the missing clue that he didn't give earlier in his stories. will I read more of his adventures latter? defenitly yes will do. first time that I read for sherlock holmes. it requires concentration but I have found that most of the cases could be figured out right before the end and the rest you have to wait for the missing clue that he didn't give earlier in his stories. will I read more of his adventures latter? defenitly yes will do.

Sherlock Holmes is a private investigator who helps random citizens when the Scotland Yard cannot solve the case. By his side throughout the book is the trusty Dr. Watson. Mr. Holmes is a very smart man who can solve almost any crime in a matter of days. He uses common sense, witt, and his gut feelings. Dr. Watson is Sherlock Holmes righthand man. He is scientifically smart and still always seems to be fascinated by Mr. Holmes ability to come to the correct conclusion. The book is a very interesting story with well thought out reasoning behind why he does some of the things that may seem crazy or uncalled for, but are ways he solves the mysteries. It sucks you in and you don’t want put it down. I liked that it had action segments, but also had intellectual thinking. Some parts of the story felt fake and unrealistic, but most of it had realism to it. Something I would have liked to have read was Dr. Watsons character develop as the story went. In example, he only figures things out at the end of each case. I would have liked to see him solve some details on his own. I like how it is written with the same outlay as a tv show. You hear about the crime and then they solve the mystery. The theme of this book is, you can never be too careful.

    I enjoyed this book a lot. I actually got it in year 7 but haven't gotten round to reading this book till now. This is for the people who like to watch a lot suspense and crime films. There are 8 short stories which are about 30-50 pages long. The classical character, Sherlock Holmes was first introduced in the late 1800's. But the book is still awesome because of the idea. The fact that Holmes was a detective with very unique abilities of a making scientific and logical deductions of people rat I enjoyed this book a lot.

The fact that Holmes was a detective with very unique abilities of a making scientific and logical deductions of people rather than looking for the mistakes the criminal makes. I think this book will always be a favorite of mine even though it is so old. Reading this book is better than watching some movies because it is so descriptive and clear, even though I am not good at forming a clear picture in my head by reading, I can imagine clear colorful images and its like I'm watching a movie in my own head! I am also currently reading Hounds of the Baskervilles and that's a great book too even though I have only read 4 chapters. The thing I like about the 'Sherlock Holmes' series is that it's very realistic and even then, it makes me excited. This month I've been thinking about the types of books I like to read. I found that when I was 8-10 years old I liked fantasy quite a lot. Then, in intermediate school, I liked to learn about the world (I still do!) but even if the genre of books were different, I found a common feature in all of them. They always had some sort of realistic elements, excluding the fantasy or fiction, like two generals vying for control of the galaxy or even something like a boy who gets sent to NZ a few years after the great war trying to piece together his life. In all these book the characters involved are complex characters with lots of different emotions and twists. This is why I like Sherlock Holmes a lot. He is a different person altogether in the next part of the story or even the next page. One minute his mind seems to have flown out of the window and the next he is an alert man surveying the new evidence brought to him. He can be a thief stealing to protect his clients honour, or a whaler. One of the best books ever.
