The Memoirs of Sherlock Holmes by Arthur Conan Doyle

The Memoirs of Sherlock Holmes
By Arthur Conan Doyle

Penguin Classics
Pricing varies depending on the form of publication.

What the publisher says about this collection of classic Sherlock Holmes short stories:

Sherlock Holmes’ fame has also brought him notoriety and there are those in the criminal underworld who must move against him or find their schemes in ruins...

While Holmes and Dr Watson solve what will become some of their most famous cases – Silver Blaze, The Greek Interpreter and The Musgrave Ritual among them – the forces of international crime plot their revenge against the detective.
And it is in The Final Problem that Dr Watson has the sad task of telling the grisly, fatal and shocking tale that saw Holmes finally meet his match – in the guise of the diabolical Professor Moriarty and a terrible struggle at the Reichenbach Falls...

What I have to say about The Memoirs of Sherlock Holmes is that  it's fabulous!  But also know that these are "classic" stories and the eleven that appear in this collection have also appeared in other publications. That being said, if you haven't had a chance to read many of Doyle's short stories, this is a treat! Who am I to criticize the master of detectives? I'm a reader, and since I am writing about this collection of short stories, I thought the idea of having Watson narrate was "elementary"!

The stories are brilliant and Arthur Conan Doyle never disappoints me.  Need I say more?

I hope he never disappoints you.

4 1/2 put of 5 stars.

This e-galley was provided to me by the publisher through NetGalley and in no way affected my review.
